Re: '76 Escort RS continual project.

95% done with the engine bay! And I'm super happy with the results. Mostly just have to make up and assemble the new fuel line pieces from the FPR to the carbs as well as throw the ignition system back on. It's amazing how much room the intake runners and carbs take up. I used the gold heat shield t...

Re: '76 Escort RS continual project.

Nearly there! More bits getting back into the bay again, the wiring harness and aux wires are all protected and fastened out of harms way. The radiator top tank got a nice coat of paint to match all of the rest of the clean and shiny parts The blue hose left of the head goes to the WRC heater, I wil...

Re: '76 Escort RS continual project.

Getting there, running wire loom protection on all of the misc. wires that were not very well protected in the past. Oil cooler hooked back up, but plenty of parts to still go back in in the bay. https://i.imgur.com/pI46oueh.jpg To help with the heat stress of a few bits, I ran carbon wrap on the he...

Re: '76 Escort RS continual project.

Without a doubt! The engine was specifically built to run high RPM on loose surfaces, so the wheels are normally moving quick no matter how slow the car is going. :lol: I took the rock chipped upper strut bar and gave it a nice reset, in matching white. https://i.imgur.com/GVchzuTh.jpg The very tire...

Re: '76 Escort RS continual project.

It's very aggressive, and not very street friendly....but I don't care, as it wasn't built for that and have fun with it regardless. The car can't get out of it's own way at anything below 3000 rpm, but when it hits it, it snaps you back into the seat until the next gearchange and just pulls super h...
