Here is a Cortina with a bit of potential, being an automatic it will have the larger transmission tunnel to accommodate whatever you might want to install and at a normal price too.

I didn't know it was the same car as there were no pictures in that post and the price is slightly different too. I do think though that someone could do a lot with that car, a good candidate for a Zetec 5 speed conversion or ???

Had a chance to meet two very nice gentlemen from North Carolina. Joe purchased my 68 Cortina. He and his friend Anthony drove 12 plus hours from North Carolina, loaded up the car and parts and headed back home. I enjoyed the opportunity to talk about English Fords and wish Joe and Anthony the best of luck.

Man I wish I saw this. I need that red interior. Do you still have the cross flow or any other bits hanging around?

[quote="anthonid"]heres some pics of this car now!

I see what you mean having to create a higher hole to maintain a workable cable angle, how is the pedal effort? I did a couple of Mk2 2 litre conversions back in the late 1970s, back then I used the stock 2000e GT box with it's stock hydraulic clutch operation. I used a Cortina clutch disc and had to put a Cortina ring gear on the Pinto flywheel to let the Lucas starter motor work with it.
Could you tell me if the stock Pinto/Ford starter motor has a similar bolt pattern to a Lucas/English starter motor? I would check for myself but I am over 2200Km away from my parts storage at the moment. The reason I ask is that when I built my 711M crossflow I MIGHT have inadvertently used a Pinto 1600 132 tooth flywheel and I am not happy with the Lucas 11 tooth starter engagement although it does work it doesn't sound right. Do you remember what the identifying marks are on the Pinto flywheel just in case you know?

The pedal is surprisingly light. Feels similar to my 2000e gearbox with the 7'8 slave cylinder.

As for the flywheels. I dont think the lucas starter would even engage the pinto flywheel. The ford starter throw is far shorter than the lucas. The cortina flywheels are flat whereas the pinto 711m is stepped pushing the ring gear towards the starter. If your using a 132 ring gear make sure you have a 11 starter.the pinto is actually 135t as.

I believe the ford starter pattern is larger pcd than the lucas.

Thanks for the info, I will recheck my bits when I get home. All this talk in this thread has me thinking and I wish I could just go and compare my bits right now but as I said I am not there at the moment. My problem is that over the years I collected a number of crossflow engines and bits and did not label things well enough so I am not sure what flywheel I am using except being a 132 tooth, I may have discarded some parts I thought I would never use along the way and I am now wondering if I tossed the Pinto stuff??? The 711M engine that is in my Anglia came from a 1600 Pinto that I bought many years ago as a donor car.
I think I am just going to get a lighter, safer steel flywheel from Burtons in the U.K. with a matching high torque starter motor, problem solved.
