    Engine Won't Start

    After months of not being able to start the engine, despite fuel, spark, air and timing all OK (Pinto 2.0 with DGAV Webers), it started yesterday by holding a rag over the air intake to the carb. Battery has died due to the number of times I have tried to start the car. Today with a new battery, same thing. Car won't start, but as soon as I put a rag over the air intake it started fine. Once it has been running for a few in minutes it then starts fine every time, while it is hot. Any ideas why or what to do? Thanks
  3. I have a pinto engine with twin webers. It runs quite well under light acceleration but after heavy acceleration the engine and exhaust start to feel like they are being choked. This get steadily worse until the engine loses all power and needs to be left for an hour to recover. Could anyone suggest what might be causing this please? Would air leaks in th exhaust cause this?

    Possibly Zetec Into Rh 2B

    Hi I've recently purchased a 2b, Asking for info on the best/easiest engine instal option? The car currently has rear diff and prop to run a 2 litre pinto set up, the engine and gearbox is no longer with the car. My rough thoughts are leaning towards either the 2.0 Zetec or the st170 engine, or possible a vauxhall red top?I know I'm asking for a lot of info but could anyone advise me of options and parts I'll need ie any conversion kits available to get the Zetec in the 2b?, gearbox options? Can I run the standard injection and ecu? Or do I have to switch to bike carbs/throttle bodies, thanks in advance for any info!

    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.
  11. Hi chaps, Can I change the Zetec sump to a Raceline with the engine in the chassis? Hopefully this will be a simple question to answer. I need to know if I should order the raceline sump at this point in the build if I don't have to. The reason being is that my paycheck won't stretch that far for my Easter break when I'm taking a week off work...and want lots to do. Has anyone gone down this path? Every build I've seen seems to do it off the car. Cheers Chris

    Donor Engine Problems...

    Hi All, I wanted to source some opinion first before I go any further. I have managed to get hold of a whole 1992 sierra sapphire which I am currently in the process of slowly dismantling. I have only had about 2 full days and a number of cold evenings to look at it so I've just been taking doors and accessories apart. Anyway, when I got the car, it started fine and I managed to drive it onto the drive without any issue. Come about a month later, I cannot get the bloody thing to start (it's the 2.0l DOHC if anybody is interested). I am pretty much certain that the problem is on the electrical side, suspecting either the distributor or the coil. It cranks, smells of petrol but won't start. My question is this: Should I bother to try and fix the engine where it is and delay taking the car apart or should I simply strip the donor, get all the bits and try and get it working once it is outside of the car? Annoyingly, it is a proper faff to check things like spark plugs as I'd have to take off the whole inlet manifold to get near it. I intend to fully strip down the engine once I've got it out and clean everything. My worry is that it'll be even harder to figure out what is wrong once I have it out of the car. It had about every conceivable accessory so I've got alarms, electric windows, bulb failure lights to try and get out of the loom before I get near the bits I'm interested in. Thoughts please! Andrew
