Ford Torino.

Here's a couple of pictures of a Torino that a friend of mine in the UK has, I must admit I had never seen one before, just wondered if it was familiar to anyone over here? He's the parts guy at the MK2 owners club, really knows his stuff. http://www.enfostuff.com/forum/userpix/485_Red_Torino_004_2....

I guess I've started something here.... so by fitting the MK2 diff on the MK1 it'll give me more speed?

Diffs.

Can anyone tell me what advantages/ disadvantages I would have if I swapped my standard 66 Mk1 GT diff and installed a 69 MK2 GT diff? I am assuming they are interchangeable. Thanks.

Door check strap installation?

http://www.enfostuff.com/forum/userpix/485_38E7C01C019E49039D3FEA9285F2B778_1.jpg I was missing these on my MK1 2 door. Now I’ve got them I need a bit of advice on exactly where they attach, if anyone has time to take a quick picture I’d really appreciate it. Thanks and merry Christmas to every...

I too had a slight leak from the top and I made a gasket but I think I may have changed the spacing now I think about it, I’ll remove it and do the same Dave, thanks.

Cortina MK1 steering box oil seal.

I’m leaking oil out of my steering box , running down the drop arm, I see there is an oil seal just above where the drop arm bolts on. Does anyone know if this seal can be changed without removing the steering box? Looks like a pretty big job if it needs to come out. Thanks.

2019 events.

Is there an events calendar for touring car racing for 2019 covering Canada and the US? Been watching Goodwood revival clips on YouTube and would love to see something similar but this side of the pond. Might even be able to persuade the ‘trouble and strife’ to make a holiday of it......Thanks.

I’ve put it all back together again, I still try and use it as a daily driver. I’m sure everyone is tired of my issue anyway. I’ll look again during the winter when it’s off the road, I’ll check your suggestion then Pete. Thanks all.

Tried reversing polarity, checked all the grounds, still no change. One thing you mentioned stirred my curiosity Pete, ‘ staying too long on 0 volts and too short on 5 volts ‘ . The instruction leaflet that I got with the v/s mentions that it gives a constant 5 volts? When I check with a meter I...

Yes I made sure it’s grounded, in fact I added an extra ground to the whole speedo as the ground from the bulb connection didn’t seem too great. I don’t have a spare voltage stabilizer but surely the other gauges would be inacurate if it was faulty. I think I’ll try and run a wire straight f...
