    Fitiing Windscreen

    I had to raise the windscreen on my Series 3 as I am tall. I used a piece of thin sheet steel to cover the gap, some U shaped rubber along the bottom edge then some black silicone sealant along the inside to keep the rain out.

    Robin Hood Series 3 - project - £900

    Are you sure that is a Series 3 ? It look's more like a Series 2, if you have a look at the North West Rhocar site there are pictures that help identify the different types of car by the style of front suspension http://nw.rhocar.org/identification.htm Nigel.

    Ford Inertia Switch Connector

    I am fitting an electric fuel pump and a Ford inertia switch but need another connector for the inertia switch, I am having trouble finding one and was wondering if anybody might have one gathering dust somewhere or know where I could find one. The connector part number is E8AB-14489-AA and looks like this: The inertia switch was fitted to the Focus and KA: Thanks, Nigel.

    Stainless Robin

    I fitted these to my Series 3 last winter: Shocks 13" Open with spherical bearings, 1" bumpstop, 3" travel, the price a year ago was £160 they are now £220 or best offer: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-x-13-open-Gaz-Gold-racing-aluminium-adjustable-shocks/323284346027?epid=633644743&hash=item4b453fa4ab:g:jpMAAOxyYYlRrPuF Springs 1.9", Length 9", Rate 125lbs: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Faulkners-Race-Racing-Rally-Competition-Suspension-Coilover-Spring-1-9-ID-/400512937829?var=&hash=item9c059e72db They made a huge difference over the original shocks, the suspension actually works now.

    Lincolnshire Meet For April

    An enjoyable trip out, the car ran well which was good news after having the engine and gearbox out over the winter, managed to get home without getting too wet as well. Looking forward to the Stilton Cheese Run next Sunday. Nigel.

    Lincolnshire Meet For April

    Hi Al, Helen and I will be able to make it, maybe we could come to your place and drive up together. The winter maintenance has now been completed and I took the Hood out for its first run of the year today between showers. The maintenance consisted of: Engine and gearbox out to replace the clutch as there was some clutch judder. Clutch judder now gone, thanks again for the help getting the engine and gearbox back in. New pivot bars made for the front top suspension as the old ones had worn and there was play and various creaks coming from them. Replaced the original front shocks and springs which after 21 years and 31,000 miles were fit for the bin, some might say they should have been binned and never fitted. After fitting new GAX shocks and softer springs I now agree, the ride is much better. Fitted Daytime Running Lights to the nosecone grill. Role on summer. Cheers, Nigel.

    Technical Drawing Or Cad Model - Pinto

    This is how I did mine. Mounted the trigger wheel on the back of the crank pulley: Created a shoulder to mount the trigger wheel on with a lathe Trigger wheel was spot welded once position decided Made an adjustable bracket for the VR sensor: VR bracket bolts to bottom of engine: Nice and neat and has worked perfectly for the last 12 years.
