  1. During the original (rushed) build I removed the sensor for low engine oil level from the block and tapped a wooden round peg in the round hole. Now, during a rebuild I have more time to consider... should I properly seal the hole, which kept weeping oil .. or reinstate the oil level warning sensor. To be honest I am thinking that it is not needed and just one more thing to leak or go wrong and I am not sure if it is just a single point sensor or a gradual sensor. So before I throw it away I was wondering if anyone else has fitted/used this sensor and has some experience to share.

  3. Hello It might be a long shot but I am after a manifold for my Robin Hood which has a 2.0l Pinto. At the moment I have an original Sierra manifold but I would prefer one of the Robin Hood Engineering ones. Has anyone got one that they don't want anymore? Thanks Graeme

    Hi I have a smiths speedo is it just the one big cable goes to the back of it or is the spade on the back needed to ground?

  6. Hello I am looking for some advice please. I have a Robin Hood that is based on a 1988 Ford Sierra. It is running a 2.0l OHC Pinto with an ESC II module. I was thinking about replacing the standard ignition system with electronic ignition. I was looking at Accuspark but I am a bit unclear as to what to go for. The current system seems to have a ballast coil that takes it feed from the ESC module. The Bosch distributor hasn't got a vacuum advance and takes it feeds from the coil and ESC module which has got a vacuum feed from the manifold. Is it better to replace the current ballast coil with a standard coil and give it a feed directly from the ignition rather than the ESC? By replacing the points with either a conversion kit or electronic distributor how will it get a feed for the advance if the signal is no longer coming from the ESC? I have contacted Accuspark and they just advised their distributors are stand alone and can use either a ballast or standard coil. Graeme

    Starter Motor Help Required!!

    Hi guys New owner and complete a mature here any help and recommendations welcome. I’ve got a 2l Pinto engine which I have records saying it was built in 1975 for a Cortina. The starter motor is very lazy. I bought a new bosh style one off eBay but it is just spinning so believe it is a bad fit. The one that’s come off the car is a Lucas 25345a. Could someone please recommend a new, more efficient replacement? thanks

    Pinto Idle

    Hello I have just about finished my Robin Hood but there seems to be a problem with the idle. After a couple of minutes it starts going lumpy and cuts out. It keeps cutting out if I don't hold the throttle open slightly. It is a 2.0l Pinto with a Weber 30/34 DFTH. I noticed there is a pipe coming from the carb that looks like a breather (black and red). The problem stopped when I sealed the end of this pipe. This may be a stupid question but, does anyone know what it is for? Is it originally from the air cleaner? Thanks Graeme
  9. Hi guys been a while, i've put a new rad in the Robin Hod which has no header built in. The only thing left is the original air bleed off point which i will now use as the filler . Any idea on a remote header tank for it? Not looking to go pressurised just staying standard.
  10. Can anyone help me identify this cam please ?

    Pinto Idle Valve

    Hi all. Anyone seen or used one of these......... http://www.ebay.co.u...=item1e7e8cad21 Looking to replace mine on a 2.0 efi pinto ('89). Cheers, Bob.
  12. Hi All, I'm in the process of installing Megajolt to my Pinto engine which is running on cbr900 bike carbs. I would like to have a second temperature sensor so that the Megajolt can adjust the timing relative to the temperature of the engine. I am aware that I cannot use the temperature sensor in the head for the MJ as well as the temp gauge so I need a second one. I have a temp sensor in the top pipe already for my temp controlled fan. Does anyone have any other ideas where I could put another one? Having read this forum (http://www.locostbuilders.co.uk/forum/3/viewthread.php?tid=63708) it appears I could put one in the coolant drain bore (3/8 NPT thread). Has anyone else done this? Thanks all!

    Weber 40 Dcoe Pinto Hoses

    I have a 2.0 Pinto for my Sierra 7, and twin Weber 40 DCOE carburettors for it. However, having never done a project like this before, I have no idea where to obtain hoses for the connections, nor how they should all be connected. If anyone could point me towards somewhere from which to obtain these hoses, and possibly a throttle linkage? I have the Pinto hiflow inlet manifold. Thanks! Alex

  18. I have my 2L pinto engine in bits at the moment and a friend has commented that there are some marks in the bores he says from where the piston has been sitting maybe from a bit of damp and advised that i should not use the block. I Got another block from a good friend which was running well and this has similar marks on number 3 but no where near as bad. the bores all feel smooth to the touch but just have slight marks. Are these block no good as they are or are they fine? not sure if he is being a bit anal or if he is valid in what he is saying will try and get a pic in the week. Does any one know how much a rebore would cost??? many thanks keith

    Dead Engine?

    So here it is. Nice day so I changed my oil for Valvolene 20w-50 on my 2.0 pinto engine. Take her for a drive to put some fuel in her after having very little in over winter. On my way back home so engine is warm nice long straight so give it some loud pedal get to lets say a swift speed holds it for a little them something goes pop? Oil pressure is down from being at 55ish psi to 20psi and water temp rises and LOTS of blue smoke. Got it home not very far like 1 mile driving slow turned her off. Now when I turn it on it still runs on all four cylinders but now making a clattering noise. (I think it sounds to be coming from cyl4 area) Took cam cover off and everything looks fine there. Any ideas? Please help.
