Old Skool to the bone

Old Skool to the bone (10/15)



  1. 3.75 is an atlas ratio , I think you mean 3.77 for an English. Small or big flange as well ? Cheers puddy
  2. Me and the missus really enjoyed this series , have not really watched it since the three stooges left. Much more like its old self. Puddy
  3. You could order a mk2 lotus tina in any colour that was available in the range at the time. They were built at ford unlike the mk1 which was built at lotus and came in ermine to them. So it might not be a special even if it is factory black.
  4. Hello! sounds like a plan, it's a fair distance from me but I want to get it done, I have a good 3.09 CWP set and would want any suspect bearings and LSD plates changing, early September would be good for me after all the tourists have gone home! but that would depend on your workload, whereabouts in Guilford are you based?

    Cheer's Malc.

      Hi malc , give Simon a ring on 01483 532283. We are called transmission services.

      Cheers puddy.

  5. We do them but we are in the heart of osf territory in guildford, Surrey. Cheers puddy
  6. The boys at plough lane garage in sutton know their osf's. I assume its for one of those. Other than that there are a couple of places in guildford i might recommend . Puddy
  7. Whereabouts are you based ? Puddy
  8. Lol , if you could read the script it actually says cosworth, for my other tina Got a lotus badge on the grill to which i have added 'not a ' Puddy
  9. More doors rule , mine and leadfoots at the mk1 Cortina nats last weekend hiding a very tasty2 door tina. Puddy
  10. Lol , not a chance with those ballons ! They will catch the front of the wing / valance on lock and definitely grab the arches over bumps. I did run 185 70 13's on genuine lotus steels but my arch lips have been rolled back. Good luck, puddy
  11. I heard they did and i missed it , anyone confirm this? Cheers puddy
  12. My springs have been decambered as well. Lotus cortinas ran them as standard on leaf spring models iirc Puddy .
  13. Use my mk1 every day. Did do the mk1 tina owners cub do at stratford at the beginning of the month and went to local pub meet as well first tuesday. Must get out more but my 350lc does take up a lot of my time in the summer months. Puddy ps. Was booked for classic ford weekend and Bromley pageant but had head gasket and running issues at the time. All good now tho
  14. Don't forget the nose angle of the diff as well. Mine was pointing upwards when i did mine. I cut the lowering blocks in half to make wedges ala mk1 lotus tina. Puddy
  15. You also need capri rear spring hangers because the eye of the spring is much bigger and will just sit against the chassis leg. Puddy
