  1. Bringing the caravan and family down for the weekend, see you there.
  2. What a coincidence, 1st time I've been on here in a very long time and you showed up as the 1st thread I saw. Hope you are all well.
  3. when my type 9 destroyed its lay shaft i rebuilt mine with heavy duty lay gear bearings and changed the gearing to v6 ratios i also sourced some heavy duty synchros for it. my 242bhp 260ft lb supercharged zetec didnt break the new box ! i also fitted the a quaife ATB which is great bit of kit transformed the car.. With v6 ratios and a 3.54 diff the car would pull 65mph in 2nd gear. https://www.bearingkits.co.uk/FORD-GEARBOX-PARTS/FORD-TYPE-9-GEARBOX-PARTS/C1-10-1-0.htm best place i found for type 9 parts
  4. What a great weekend ! Thanks to all who arranged it, we really enjoyed it. Probably see you at stoneleigh...
  5. Just bought tickets for sue Keira and myself. Will arrive Friday evening with caravan. C u all there
  6. Just a heads up, when buying these cheap policy's from the above and probably others, if you cancel the policy because let's say you sold your car they do not refund a single penny ! My policy was approx 2months old and her words were " there is no refund due after cancellation fees blah blah ". robbing bleeps ! I won't be using said company again for anything.... So beware peeps
  7. It took me 6yrs but I've sold the kit car, i.m done with kit cars now, after 12yrs of kit car moding and owning I've got bored of it all.... Bought a big Merc instead, 1car does it all tows the van, goes like *bleep* of a stick. Comfortable and SAFE. Have fun everybody
  8. Just to clarify prices before I book. Myself £15, my partner sue £15 or £18? My 12yr old Keira £15 or £18 Cheers
  9. When my box did similar it was lay shaft needles and shaft had gone. Rebuilt it myself.
  10. Will be dragging the caravan down about that time. Will add to your rolling road block c u at 1130. Dan
  11. I always dreamed of having / building a really fast car, now I’ve done it i hardly use it. I’ve done more mile’s on my mountain bike in the last 4months than I’ve done in the car all year !
