  1. Just 2 other members in Oxfordshire but there's a few in South Warwickshire. Warks / Worcs and West Mids Area meet is a good place to see a few cars. Details are in my signature.
  2. Link here: http://www.restoration-show.co.uk/ never been but maybe worth a look if you're local. I doubt it's worth a 7 hour drive.
  3. Blimey, this seems to have come round quickly, hence a bit late posting. Next Wendnesday, 7PM onwards, Malt Shovel Pub, Coventry Road, Nr Stonebridge, Coventry, CV7 7HL Entrance to the pub car park is off the A452 Chester Road heading North 50 yards from the island. See you there
  4. I'm not sure which show you're on about. This post was for the 2014 event.
  5. I have been in touch with the seller and he is keen to see the car sold. It's already cheap and it could be had cheaper if you're genuinely interested. It will shortly be going on Facebook groups so don't hang around if you're interested.
  6. Post a photo of what you currently have on the car. What diameter is the main threaded part?
  7. We will have mugs for sale, make ideal gifts and come with a gift box. Priced at £5 or 2 for £9. Come and see me or ask a committee member to point you in my direction.
  8. Derek is all heart already, he doesn't need an icon.
  9. Well done Graeme, you must be pleased. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long for your documents and can get a few miles in before the winter. If you can live with the higher pedal effort, removing the servo is a good move as it does give more feel to the brakes. I've just swapped to my third master cylinder trying to get a good balance between pedal effort and braking performance and I think I've finally got it how I want it.
  10. Have you got solid or vented discs and have you got discs on the back? Front calipers can be 53mm on 1.3, 1.6 and 2.0 cars without rear discs. Cars with rear discs have 60mm calipers. https://brakeparts.co.uk/shop/Ford/Sierra More specifically this for 1988 2.0 https://brakeparts.co.uk/shop/Ford/Sierra/82-89/Sierra 2.0 OHC Models/Front - Brake Calipers and Wheel Cylinders a choice of 2 depending on rear brake setup.
  11. You can buy rebuild kits and they're pretty straightforward to fit yourself. As you say, setting them up afterwards might be more of an issue. Maybe think about bike carbs instead, sidedraft carbs fetch good money with the retro boys and a variable venturi bike carb might actually give better driveability.
  12. No advanced warning needed. I'm sure there will be enough going on to keep her occupied and give you a bit of time to yourselves.
  13. Speak to Andrew, I'm sure he will be able to sort something out for you.
