Wheely good builder!

Wheely good builder! (4/6)

    2B For Sale

    Sorry for the slow response - I haven't checked back here in quite a while. Technically yes, though there is an interested party deciding one way or the other as we speak. I should know later this week.
  2. Hi Mark. This was on a pinto - drivers side. The two sections are clamped between the silencers though, so you could theoretically rotate it to suit a nearside application.

    2B For Sale

    Edit: The exhaust in these pictures is not the one that's currently fitted - I replaced this 5" exhaust with a a 7" repackable stainless exhaust last summer. I'll also try to get some pictures of the side screens at the weekend...

    2B For Sale

    Reluctant sale of my stunning and highly individual Robin Hood 2B. I'm the original owner/builder. It's all correctly tested and registered on an age related plate, and with 'Robin Hood 2B' on the V5. Currently has 12 months MOT, and just 5500 miles on the clock. Never raced or abused, and always garage stored. It's in immaculate condition throughout, and always draws a lot of attention and compliments. Meticulously detailed with many unique and custom features - There's really very little you could describe as "standard", and I think it's reasonable to describe it was one of the most unique and immaculately presented examples built. The base kit-spec is a mild steel chassis with stainless panels, front wishbones, and wide rear arch kit. The donor was a 1986 Ford Sierra 2.0GL Although it isn't used much, I've kept it taxed and MOT'd, and looked after and serviced accordingly. For example, over the past few years I've done work on the brakes, suspension, and a new exhaust. After 20 years of ownership though, life moves on and it seemed like right time for a new owner to enjoy it. £6750 ono FULL DETAILED SPEC as follows... Chassis and Bodywork Mild Steel chassis etch primed and finished in 2K gloss black GRP and wide rear arches finished in Ford Imperial Blue Pearl DAX cycle wings with custom brackets Modified Headlamp Brackets Fixed scuttle and forward tilting bonnet (unrestricted engine access) Custom nose cone skirt and air intake scoop with recessed '7' enamel badge Marine style stainless steel engine bay vents Stainless Steel '7' Windscreen pillars, Chromed '7' Grille Dedicated Jacking points, with jack included Steering and Suspension Adjustable GAZ Coilovers all round Upgraded front wishbones (OldTimbo kit), improving suspension geometry and adjustable for camber/rake/trail, etc Camber adjustment sleeve has been upgraded to the stronger steel version Tie rod ends replaced 2018 Bottom ball joint dust covers replaced 2022 Track rod ends replaced 2018 Rear camber correction wedges fitted Refurbished Speedline alloys with new Toyo Proxes T1R tyres (approx 4000 miles wear) Locking wheel nuts Spare wheel Electical & Lighting Premier Wiring Systems Loom Halogen Headlamp bulb upgrade High level rear brake light (roll bar) Individual rear lights Mini Wiper motor, with stainless wiper arms Side Indicators incorporated into wing mirrors and nose cone Engine, Mechanical & Brakes Ford Pinto Engine - originally carb, now running aftermarket fuel injection OMEX 600 ECU - rolling road setup at Steve Walford Motorsport Honda CBR Throttle Bodies on a custom DANST Engineering inlet manifold, ITG Filter Adjustable fuel pressure regulator (with removeable guage) Focus injectors Weber 36-1 Crank Position Kit Coil Pack 205 block completely refurbished and rebuilt to 2.1 spec, new pistons, etc Vulcan Engineering cylinder head, unleaded valve seats FR32 Cam, Vernier Pulley Lightened & balanced flywheel Shortened sump New CBS 7" Stainless exhaust fitted 2021, with 4-1 manifold kit STACK Lambda Sensor* (Not currently fitted) New Clutch fitted during engine rebuild Type 9 5-speed gearbox with quick-shift kit Vibra-Technics Gearbox mount Kenlowe Electric 'sucker' fan, with adjustable thermostat Aluminium Oil catch and water expansion tanks Braided Stainless Steel brake hose kit fitted New front discs fitted during build Greenstuff pads fitted 2021 New Rear drums, slave cylinders and service kit fitted 2021 Custom Alifab fuel tank (approx 40+ litres), baffled and swirl pot New SYTEC Fuel Pump Interior and Boot Cobra 7 seats in black vinyl with blue piping Willans 4-point harnesses in Blue Drivers seat on sliding runner Momo Team leather steering wheel Fully carpetted and upholstered cabin, in black carpet and blue/black vinyl Custom dashboard, featuring brushed stainless central console, and top-mounted instrument pods Caerbont individual guages - Aluminium bezel, white face.

    Sports-cat exhaust

    Morning Rich, Are you thinking from a potential heat-generated by the cat point of view? I'm not overly concerned about the mixture - It probably does run a bit rich on cold startup, but is fine once up to temp (running omex 600 fuel injection with oxygen sensor). Anyway, let's not get bogged down with specifics....hypothetically speaking, does a catalyst reduce smells or is it just taking care of invisible atoms and molecules?

    Sports-cat exhaust

    Calling anyone with a sports-cat fitted to their exhaust system... To what extent, if any, does the catalyst reduce exhaust smells? I'm fed up of ending up stinking any time I go near the car, and will gladly accept a performance hit for a noticeable reduction in pong! Thanks in anticipation.
  10. ...okaaay. Errmmm.....you got a name or anything Barry? Cheers.
  11. Arrange a mutually convenient time with my Dad Steve.
  12. You can, so long as you can collect it.
  13. I've got a *bleep* pinto engine!
  14. I'm having a big garage clearout and have a lot of Pinto bits going spare (mostly induction and ignition stuff). If you can collect it (Coventry) you can have it, it's all going to the tip otherwise. Sorry but I'm not posting anything. >2.0ltr Pinto inlet assembly including Weber 2V twin choke carb (with stepper motor), throttle cable linkage, and inlet manifold. >Various Weber 2V twin choke carbs (for spares) >ESCII Module and sub loom >Indicators (standard RH nose cone type) >2B Windscreen Mounts (chrome plated, usable, but lots of drill holes) >HT Lead sets (one brand new) >Mountney steering wheel 10" with horn push and IVA pad >Oil Cooler >Small Heater matrix >Dash-top gauge pod (for 2" gauges) >IVA unleaded fuel pipe restrictor >Various pinto rotor arms and dizzy caps >Various short fan belts (brand new) >Small heater fan >Sierra Wiper assembly >Pinto thermoviscous fan >Various Pinto master cylinders Too much stuff to photograph, but if there's something specific you want more info on, leave a comment below.
