  1. So very sorry for your loss, not an easy time for you & your family, look after yourself.
  2. Aye up, I am pretty sure the engine mounts are handed, as in one side is longer than the other, so would put the engine in a different lateral position in the engine bay. Perhaps you have them reversed, and it is putting the engine closer to that mount, rather than further away to it, I may be completely wrong, but I am sure one is longer than the other. !!??. Al.
  3. I think that is great, made my day.
  4. Hi, Well the DVLA have it down as last going for an official MOT on 17/05/06 and last V5C change as 30/01/13 Could well be stored up by someone, it is declared as SORN, so I would guess it is still around, but mothballed for some reason. Good luck getting it to come to light, it is a really nice car.
  5. Hi, I cannot get to my cars today to take pictures, the under bonnet of a 1600 Ghia will be the same, as same running gear (if it is a manual car). The dipstick tube should be a rubber pipe with a steel ferrule in the top end, with a steel bracket on the top that is attached to the inlet manifold, so very hard to get in the wrong place, the block should have a steel tube/nipple sticking out of the lower crankcase that the rubber tube locates on, all in all a very simple method to replace, and all should line up correctly if your still using the correct Ford top dipstick tube b
  6. As good as a 711M nearly, as it has the later pistons with valve cutout,s to allow the 711M flat head, pretty sure originally it would have had a head with a small chamber & pistons with only the combustion bowl in the center and no valve cutouts, so a nice engine to have. Good luck.
  7. Just to add, I have to admit that I do not as such use them as a battery charger, mainly I bought them for using as a maintainer across an already charged battery, the one's I have are the XS- 0.5, it has an output of 0.5 Amps and just keeps the battery topped up, and once the battery is at 100% charge (14.4 to 14.6 volts), just pulses the battery as and when it needs to, to keep battery at its fully charged state, it would charge a flat battery BUT it would take an awful long time if it was say 55AH battery, it may take 4 or 5 days or so, but the thing is, CTEK stuff is good kit, end off.
  8. I agree with all the positives on the Ctek chargers, I have them on all my classic Fords, never had a problem with anyone of them.
  9. Is it an Imperial spanner or Metric !!??, just thinking, if you have Imperial hands and the handle is Metric, might cause a bit of a rash !!??.
  10. Hi, Have you any paper work to establish that the said Escort you sold has had a new exhaust fitted !!??, or a receipt for the exhaust you have fitted, I would not be forced into supplying a new exhaust to the buyer if I could show proof of the car having a new exhaust. He test drove the car & was happy with the exhaust on the test drive, he has now driven it for 8+ hours, I would say that it has just settled down and prob needs re-aligning and tightening up, maybe the exhaust clamps need undoing and a little exhaust paste fitting in the joints, but to me this looks like a
  11. Hi, There are a few on Ebay at the moment, some of the sellers are saying that they have Genuine Ford ones, but if it does not say FORD in the oval on the front of the glass, then they are not 100% genuine. I don't have any spare genuine ones to sell as I have Escort MK2 Ghia,s myself, so need the lamps.
  12. No problem, the ones I wanted were still on Ebay, so I bought them.
  13. There are a few on the Evil Bay, so not sure what is yours, have you a item number please. Ta.
  14. Hi, I am very interested in them, if your able to take them off. Ta, Al.
  15. Hi, No prob, will get it out tonight with the wife (The vinyl roof you smutty minded git's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and have a look, I would prob say it will be 4 door, more common to have one for a 4 door on the spares shelf of a closed down Ford dealership, but who know,s. ??!!.
