Ti wiper problem

Be careful where you store it.....

:shock:
was this advertised as 'for restoration'

Peter I see all your spanners are neatly stowed :wink:

but you really should stow the oily weight-lifting kit on it's side not vertically!

Out it comes!

They can be a bit of a pain. Can you make a well with modelling clay for the release agent? You could try something a bit thicker too, diesel or my favourite ATF and Acetone mix. Then it is a matter of some tapping with a hammer and trying to move it either way until it starts to yield. Some just n...

Am I right in thinking that the CVH alternator ribbed v belt is an AVX10?
doesn't seem correct, usually the code has the length eg 4x655, 4 v and 755 long (as an example) but don't rely on my memory as i have a belt from a montego on ours!

All the hard work is in the prep, so once prepped it would be better and cheaper to continue to paint. If you just wrapped over rough paint job it would look like a fat girls arse in tight leggings.
is that a bad thing? :shock: :w

Exhaust manifold heat shield

There were dozens of different design shields on various CVH powered fords over the years. IMHO the only one worth having is the one with a 90 degree bend that shields the alternator from the exhaust. didn't even know that there should be one!!! I made up mine from a small section of aluminium to k...

TD's Daily Ti thread

Good news! - all ok on the brake tester :D In fact rear left gave slightly better response than rear right. Rear right is still first to lock up under savage braking - maybe it's a weight distribution effect. In reply to Alan, yes as new the shoe with the handbrake lever attached has noticeably thi...

TD's Daily Ti thread

Handbrake cable over the exhaust: Yes that was the previous problem that lead to the overheating of the drum...and subsequent replacements. Handbrake cable is free-operating for last 12 months and more. And still today. Looking at brake shoe wear, I wonder why the one with the handbrake lever is th...

Ford's SS1

After undoing downpipe nuts, it was obviously very warped like Jim suggested, so I took it off completely to file flat. Then noticed a couple of cracks and pinholes in the weld between the pipe and 'V' piece. A future upgrade will likely be a 4 branch manifold and downpipe, so I'd like to just get ...
