Re: Ford Cortina '67 GT 5 speed

It's been for sale for several years now. First by the owner, then Park Place and now (maybe a couple more in between, too), BaT. Looking at the dyno sheet, I find it interesting that the max BHP figures are around 130ish and torque about 100ish. The stock ST170 (SVT) motor makes Horsepower: 170 hp ...

Re: Fiesta Information,Clubs,etc.?

Doug,

Is that the race car one? How much are they asking for it?

Re: 1991 Fiesta

Doug,

Are you sure it's not a Festiva? The year sounds about right. Otherwise, Burton Power in the UK would be your best bet.

Re: For sale - again...

If that's Gord Leach's old car, it needs a ton of work.

Two (2) Sparco 3 layer driver's suits

I have two, 3 layer Sparco racing suits. Sizes 50 & 54, in very good condition. No rips, tears or stains. I bought them thinking my two kids would fit into them and would go racing with me, but I was wrong and they didn't fit in either of them. US$125 each, plus shipping if needed, or local pick up ...

Re: Parts For Sale Ad 4

Bob,

I’ll take the idler arm bushings and the tappets if they are the small diameter ones. I don’t know the part numbers well enough to know.

Thanks,

Doug,

How bad is the rust? Rear fenders and rocker panels?

How much is he looking to get for it? Mileage?

Thanks,

Maybe you could consider one of the EcoBoost engines from a big variety of Ford products. They seem to be plentiful and relatively inexpensive. Keeps it all Ford then, too. They make gobs of power and loads of torque. Wiki link here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_EcoBoost_engine#2.0_L_(2010%E2%...

Daniel, When you say you've tried every trick to remove the bleeder screws, what exactly did you try? A 16P caliper is the same regardless of where it comes from. A 16PB will differ in both fitting size (10mm metric vs. 3/8-24)) and bolt hole mounting size (diameter - special caliper bolts required)...

I found this. The next point is that THE ONLY CAMSHAFT THAT YOU CAN USE IS THE ONE LISTED IN THE FORMULA FORD TECHNICAL REGULATIONS and I quote:,The only permitted camshaft is that specified for formula ford use,Part number 771m-6250-BA.The camshaft must remain entirely unmodified. It must be fully ...

That's interesting. The 701M casting in the cylinder blocks would be for a Lotus twin cam. Not sure about the camshaft.

Those valves look like they are sitting a little too proud of the head surface. I have an uprated FF head that I can take pictures of this weekend if you want to see what they look like.
