  1. Well I am certainly getting some varied advise on this one It's giving me a lot to think about in fact a lot more than I bargained for. The bottom line is that I want a reliable engine and the two litres it has as standard will be quite enough as I think my bombing around the countryside like a maniac are probably behind me. Too many cameras about these days!! My aim is to have a cosmetically good looking car with reasonable performance without (hopefully) spending a vast amount of money so thanks for some costing snapperpaul. I don't mind taking the engine out but I would rather pay somebody to do the nitty gritty that have worked on this type of engine before, better chance of it working again.
  2. Thanks a lot richyb/the duck for the info I will certainly follow up on your recommendations. I can see now that I will be bankrupt for the net few years but fun while doing it. As long as it will be at least on the road for next summer I will be happy.
  3. Hi all, Does anybody know of a company that could rebuild my Pinto 2ltr engine. The engine is in running condition and sounds quite good with no strange knocking sounds but due to it's age could definitely need a total update including the head to run on unleaded. I live in Shropshire near Shrewsbury but don't mind taking it anywhere to get it done as long as somebody could recommend that the company is OK as I have some horror stories about some so called engineering set ups. This is just the start of my renovation of the S111 I have just bought so am looking for "local knowledge" so to speak. Thanks Graham
  4. Hi all, Just got into a hotel in London and found your replies, many thanks for some interesting facts especially the lift off at speed!! Luckily the car already has passed the IVA so by next year I can head out with it on your meets. The work over the winter is going to be cosmetic and engine. I will need to find an engine specialist that can do a good job on a Sierra 2ltr. Nice pics of the white one. Regards all Graham
  5. Hi all, Just joined the club as I have acquired a Robin Hood as a project over the winter months so will have to seek advice probably many issues. I will have to go to a few meetings to talk to owners to get an idea of what can be achieved so looking forward to that. One thing I do like which seems not to be the norm is that I like the long extended type of front wings. If anybody knows of any for sale I would be interested although I have seen a pair on eBay for a Westfield, would anybody know if they might be adaptable for the Robin Hood. Thanks Graham
  6. Hi Paddy 1970 Just seen your ad and am very impressed with the car you are advertising. I live about a three hour drive from you so could you tell me when it is available for viewing if it has not been sold. I am able to come over virtually any time. Regards Graham
