Re: Oil Filter #

I can't remember the cartridge # for the stock oil filter but you might want to consider switching up to a spin on type similar to the one in the link below. I did that for all my Anglia and Cortina powered vehicles, so much easier when doing an oil change.  https://www.burtonpower.com/oil-pump-x-fl...

Re: Brett's Stock Anglia 100e

Yes Jan, it is as you say, my engine was running great in between the rare moments when it was spitting out ring fragments. The annoyance now is that I will have to break in the new engine and it's difficult to drive that slow in my area.

Re: Brett's Stock Anglia 100e

70K is quit high for a 100E engine. Usually by 50K a rebuilt is needed about half the life of a 105E engine. Small dia pistons and long stroke cuts the lifespan a bit. We owned a couple of these, Anglia and Escort. Very reliable. Never overheated. Mine could have been rebuilt before as I don't know...

Re: Mk2 Cortina GT

Well the price is good, I wonder if it is the original engine? the inlet and carb are certainly not from a GT.

Re: Brett's Stock Anglia 100e

That happens when the ring has too much play in the groove. Noticed, Brett, that the second groove has a ring spacer. I remember some of the ring sets I bought back in my Morris Minor days in the 70s would often come with a spacer for the top ring, the spacer was handy for spacing the top ring away...

An oldie but goodie, for those that may not understand the translation is "pissed and broke" My old Prefect 100e did exactly the same thing about twenty years ago, must be a 100e trait?

Brett's Stock Anglia 100e

The flathead on my stock Anglia has been intermittently making some dreadful noises, I sometimes think it is going to scatter itself on the road. The funny thing is that the noise disappears before I can even get under the hood to investigate the cause. I had a suspicion of what it might be so I fin...

Re: Lotus Cortina rep.

The car really presents well, I would love it, just not for that money.
