  1. Alan, Can you help with part numbers for the U,J,s on the 05 Superspec, The gearbox is Ford MT75 and the Diff I beleive is Ford Sierra.

    Any help would be appreciated.


  2. Alan, I borrowed a ramp yesterday it appears that the universal joints on each end of the prop shaft are breaking down, probably through lack of grease. Do you have any part numbers for the UV,s?
  3. Keith The clutch was heavier before I made improvements. However I have just noticed that you have a 2B I am not sure if the gear box and mounting plate are the same as mine.
  4. Keith The clutch cable I fitted to my car was a Volvo cable. Quinton Hazel part no. QCC 1240. I also extended the clutch release lever so that the hole in the conversion plate and the lever were in perfect alignment.
  5. Keith The clutch cable I fitted to my car was a Volvo cable. Quinton Hazel part no. QCC 1240. I also extended the clutch release lever so that the hole in the conversion plate and the lever were in perfect alignment. The clutch on my car is not heavy at all.
  6. I have just had my 05 SuperSpec up on the ramps it appears that one of the cv joints on the prop shaft is showing extreme ware due to lack of lubrication. 

    Is it possible to remove the prop shaft without removing gear box and diff?

    Does anyone know part numbers for the cv joints front and rear of the prop shaft?

    Any help or advice would be appreciated.

      Hi Peter,  you appear to have posted this on your personal profile page rather than in the main forum, you would probably be best starting a new post there.  

  7. Allan, I replaced the phosphor bronze bearing with a dust proof roller bearing some years ago. This is a different problem. Do you know the origin of the superspec diff. This was the only non new component fitted to the original kit.
  8. My Car drives like a dream when accelerating, however when the throttle is released there is a nasty clattering noise coming from the clutch,, gearbox or differential. Any ideas?
  9. Be warned. 1. The admin fee this firm will charge you for is voluntary not compulsory. 2. Personal dealings with this firm tell me that the warranty is not all it appears to be. 3. Additional charges they tried to charge me were 1. £500 warranty 2. £200 Alloy wheel insurance. 3. £ 95 Admin charge. 4. £200 Gap insurance.
  10. I have managed to bend the nearside lower wishbone on my 05 superspec. Can anyone tell me where I might find a replacement?
  11. Alan I have deleted the messages in my PM box. Should work now. (didn,t even know it existed) Pete. I did make a list of part numbers for things like Clutch cable, remote oil filter and Bearings for pilot hole on flywheel to replace original bronze bearing.
  12. Alan, Many thanks for your reply. Not sure what a PM is? But I found your Tasks completed list most interesting. Much of it I have done myself. With regard to the cooling system I swapped the pressure cap on the header tank to one rated at 20lbs and it has never overheated or boiled dry since. Thanks for the info. Regards Pete.
  13. Can anyone tell me the origin of the steering rack. (which car was it fitted too originally?)
  14. I need a replacement UV joint that fits between the steering shaft and the steering rack on my car.and possibly a new shaft also. Can anyone help?
  15. I replaced all the ignition components on my super spec 5 years ago, never missed a beat since. Intermotor automotive components. Nottingham. Part number 11410 replaces 11360, 11370, 11460, 11470. 11590, 11790. Hope this is of help to you. Peter
  16. Thanks Phil for all your hard work during the last 6 yrs. Pete the Dog. So sorry I could not stop for the A.G.M. I ran out of steam at about 2.00pm. That,s the trouble with being an old fart.
  17. Dear Jtomo I struggled with overheating for years. you must ensure there is no air in the cooling system. My super spec was fine on runs until i stopped in traffic where upon it would over heat and dump water on the road causing an air lock in the system. I cured this problem by swapping the 13psi pressure cap with one rated at 20psi. Make sure all the plumbing is sound and the only other thing I did was to ensure that as much as possible of the air that came through the grill went through the radiator. No further problems. Good luck Jtomo I,m sure you will get it sorted. Pete.
  18. Where were you all at 2.30pm on Saturday? I completed all my chores by mid_day so I decided to nip down to Nefyn to meet some of my old friends. I spent about half an hour visiting a couple of the post codes posted but never spotted a single Hood. I stopped at a pub about 5 miles outside Nefyn where someone had seen a Hood the previous night. I got home at 6.pm having driven about 180 miles. I was a bit disappointed about not finding any members but an enjoyable drive anyway. Must get some phone numbers.
  19. Why bother? Even my Audi A6 does this, it soon turns off when it cools down. Pete.
  20. With regard to speed and performance, I guarantee my Hood will either put a smile on your face or fill your underpants. Pete.
  21. I tried to do this last night, but there was no space in the Hood for me. I walked to the Pub instead.
  22. Hi Darren, The problem you are experiencing by all super-spec builders/owners. just winding up the suspension will wreck the handling of your car. What i did was cut exactly one inch from the bottom of the sump and one inch out of the oil pick up pipe. I also fitted a Land Rover oil filter remotely. It has a much larger capacity than the original. I always keep the oil topped up to the full line on the dip stick. It has needed topping up only once in about two and a half years. I have also fitted a sump guard for additional protection. This rarely comes into contact with large stones etc.
  23. Hi Nick, I would love to come and meet you as soon as the weather improves. Peter Kelly Pete the Dog.
