    Fiesta Disc's?

    No,sierra rear end and sierra front beam with inboard suspension.thought front hub's etc were sierra,think Cortina disc's are 240mm solid?front brake's work well just thought as i was getting new pad's i may aswell get new disc's! think the caliper's/hub's are sierra,but the disc's must be fiesta. don't know if the disc's from a fiesta fit sierra hub's? Charlie.

    Gbs Pinto Bike Carb Conversion

    hi dan when the carb's(kwak) are on the bike they have 2 cables,think it's a push,pull system. i used another short unsheathed cable 4" or so long looped it used a screw in wire connector to hold the loop then put a spring on the loop and connected to the carb's. (pic above) i bought a bike fuel pump s/hand (think from a R1)£15 from e-bay,so no need for a fuel regulator. and modified my distributor as per nw web site,although other's have removed the spring through the inspection slot and not disassembled the dizzy,mine is now All in at 3650rpm. not been on a dyno yet(no funds)(checked the plug colour)but run's fine pulls well and will tick over at 700rpm, cost under £300 all in easy.

    S7 Angle Iron

    hi, looking for advice regarding the angle iron on the front of my car that holds the suspension to the body at the top,as it's a little bent. cant use thicker angle iron (5mm) as the gap would be 4 mm smaller, are there different grades of strenght for angle iron? or could i use stainless steel? thanks Charlie.
