    The one that got away

    I had a blue pre aeroflow mk1 Cortina in the 80's 526fxt, bought it off ron harris, and sold it back to him later. I spent years trying to find it, all I knew was it's now red and 2 litre, and then one evening as if by magic I found a vid of it on youtube doing a run at north weald !. I've still got no idea who owns it but nice to see it again after all these years.
  3. I watched last nights just to see the twin cam Anglia, but I won't bother again, the guy's just too full on for me !

    Something to be aware of...!!

    such a shame some people consider destroying cars that are already rare, as entertainment.

    Retro Ford Mag.

    fit and align the bonnet to the scuttle first and keep it on whilst everything else is welded, and keep checking as you go, if something doesn't fit, make it fit before you weld, work carefully and logically and you'll get a good result. all the best !

    Heater circuit

    the booster won't switch the motor on, the micro switch on the controls will do that, that is because you don't want a situation where the fan could be switched on without the flaps open. the fan will normally run through the resistor, and the boost switch effectively by passes it ( bridges it ) to give full ( boost ) speed. does that seem correct ? I expect the motor earths via it's casing. cheers, ian

    Top Gear - what are they thinking??

    i remember top gear when it was a serious motoring consumer show, clarkson, hammond and may resurected it and made it what we all know and liked, it's finished now, best to just forget it and remember the good times. i won't watch it, i don't like evans, and loud americans even less.

    What do you think ?

    i did one just like it for my anglia, i copied a dec'61 one as my anglia was first reg'd june '61, but you could buy 4, 6 or 12 months tax back then so there is a choice of dates .

    Bad drivers

    sadly this is getting normal now, I have actually had people tell me 'that's what bumpers are for' I never leave my Anglia anywhere like car parks, people have no respect for other peoples property these days. hope you get it sorted mate, cheers, ian.

    Xflow sticking solenoid??? help!!!!!

    what condition is the wire in that operates the solenoid ? it could be breaking down , also the ignition switch itself could be packing up, the 'start' position contacts may be worn out. connect a voltmeter between the solenoid actuation terminal and the ignition switch feed, operate the starter and if you see a voltage reading on the meter this represents what you are loosing due to resistance. I hope this makes sense to you and helps you out, cheers, ian.
  12. like it or not I hold the organisers responsible for this, like the Granada one the other year, how many of those were stolen beforehand?

    Alloy refurb woes

    I've never been a fan of lacquered alloy, unless it's painted of course. shiny ( polished ) alloy is best left open for regular autosol / t cutting, if you are regular enough, just a wipe will keep them nice. cheers, ian
  14. I would remove the engine, and whilst out do the gasket, front and rear seals, clean the sump out and replace the clutch if it's looking worn, 1/2 a days work with a hired or borrowed engine hoist. merry Christmas, ian.
