    2B Project For Sale

    Hi Tony, Sorry to read that you are putting up the car for sale now, after all the work that you had put in. It only took me 12 years on and off to do all the mods on mine that you have pictures of. But it all comes down to the last little bits that seem to get to the point of what to do with the project. Well hope you get a fare offer for it, would be a shame to have to break it up to sell but that's how things go. Best of luck Martin
  2. DO NOT connect the thick brown wire to EARTH without checking. This may cause a direct short and then you will want another loom or repair. I would think that the wire had a bit of tape wrapped around to identify it from the other. Normally alternators are Earthed direct to the mounting bracket.
  3. I fitted these from GBS
  4. All depends what engine you have if a pinto I have jacked mine from under the engine crank pulley, with the aid of a small piece of wood on the jack. How high do you want to lift the engine off the ground for clearance? What clearance do you have under the bonnet that you can use to help give ground clearance?
  5. Here is my engine bay.
  6. Press release 2020 May bank holiday will be moved to mark 75th anniversary of VE Day The early May bank holiday in 2020 will move from Monday 4 May to Friday 8 May to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
  7. I never had the tapes when I purchased my car from Tricky Dicky back in his sale from May 2005. To answer your question Neal yes I still have a VHS player, Now this is old school and it has a DVD/CD player also. Regards Martin
  8. Hi Robert I belive that I sent some pictures over to Tony a few years ago. Here is how I modded mine at the time I belive the bump stop that you are enquiring about would be like mine that was used from an Escort front leg. Regards Martin

  10. Phoned John (Area Sec.) Had a message to say that he was still recovering from medical issue and also that Bob was away for the w/k end. Arrived at just before 6:30 amd waited until 7:00, no others arrived in that time so went back home. Sorry but I will not be able to attend for the next few months due to my own medical issues. So maybe next year before I am back in the driving seat attending meetings. Regards Martin
  11. Hi Joe, I have fitted a RS2000 Sump and pickup pipe to my Pinto 205 block (2000 injection) Type 9. 5speed gearbox Not sure if your belhouing is the same as mine, using the long clutch cabe (QCC1422) When fitting found that the hole for the oil dip stick in the bottom plate in the sump just had to be filed out for the correct alignment. The side extention of the sump sits where the clutch cable should go through to be in line with the clutch fork, bur mine works fine in the next hole up. Also check that the starter bolt mountings are clear mine had to have a slight file to clear. Hope this helps. Regards Martin
  12. Many thanks to everyone for the wonderfull welcome you gave me to your group. It all started out as a little drive out from home to see if I could find the farm, and ended with a great chat to you all with Tea & Burgers to finish the evening off before my drive back home and to cap it all No breakdown on the way there or back home. A fine collection of cars and their owners. Many Thanks Martin (maca)
  13. Hi Nick The front suspension is sliding pillar from your pictures. It depends if the bushes in the pillar are worn or it is the mounting of the 20mm shaft that was used from the Sierra front strut is secure at the base mounting. I had made some machined parts to mount my setup to improve what was fitted to mine. Regards Martin
  14. I used MR2 hand brake and cable mounted to a plate on the RH side of the tunnel. Martin
