  1. I use the vented M18 cals on my Corsair with Capri vented discs. It is very tight clearance wise for Lotus rims, but I use ali hubs which push the wheel out just that extra bit. I also have a remote servo which reduces pedal effort so the brakes i feel are pretty damn good and on a par with the modern cars i drive.
  2. You need to try the banger boys on facebook etc . Getting very hard to find now in vented or otherwise.
  3. You can get them on ebay, though neither the gears are cheap. Capri, Sierras, mk3 Granada's, very early mk3 transits or p100 would have used the gears originally, though your chances of finding used are hard. The same speedo gears are used in the Type E gearbox as well, but I think the worm gears are different. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DA-GEAR-FORD-SIERRA-GRANADA-CAPRI-TYPE-9-GEARBOX-SPEEDO-GEAR-24-TEETH/192808196015?hash=item2ce44397af:g:K0wAAOSwWtpcb8~6 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-CAPRI-SIERRA-TYPE-9-GEARBOX-SPEEDO-GEAR-WORM-8-TEETH-1096022A/192932222028?hash=item2ceba8144c:g:PNAAAOSwaXlc7lEs
  4. Dont exist as far as early Fords go. I think one of the Mk1 Capris had one with that position gate but very hard to find. Seen ball ones for MGC's and the like, but they are a different thread. I recently got given a knob with that same position on, but it wasn't a ball type and its not a Ford one either- no idea what it was from. I had to put a different thread into it.
  5. Gotta love a Mk1 Transit. Had a Ex German one for a couple of years. Your right about parts though getting very thin on the ground for the early ones. I think the door rubbers are the usual standard profile as I recall, if you have a section of it, try East Kent Trim.
  6. Assuming we're talking original rubber type top mount bearings, very hard to find now. They pop up from time to time on eBay, other than that, the Mk1 Cortina Owners club seem to be the only people who keep stock. You need to be a member to buy from them though.
  7. Yes early dash's very very rare. As Pete said try Corsair group on FB and forum, though not a lot of traffic on there.
  8. I may have some but I cant look until tomorrow.
  9. http://www.scottsoldautorubber.com.au/Ford%20Cortina%20MKI%201963-7.htm Under glass heading. 71 AUS dollars each Got mine from him two years ago. Got here quicker than items from the UK do!
  10. Genuine Ford Mk1 Cortina rear screen trim corners. £40 plus any post.
  11. Another one looks correct?? http://www.ebay.com/itm/GIRLING-CLUTCH-MASTER-CYLINDER-FORD-CORSAIR-V4-2000-2000E-1965-70-/311352279022 If you look on page 4 of this catalogue its gives you the part number of the cylinder too. http://www.northwestautomotivehydraulics.co.uk/GIRLING%20BRAKE%20&%20CLUTCH%20EQUIPMENT%201971%20ON..pdf
  12. I have no idea who fitted what to what or when as far as the Jags/Daimlers go, I was just giving you the link to a mc which I think has the bigger outlet thread. I have had several over the years with the bigger threads, but I have none left now as they were all used on my cars(pre Corsair ownership) with a reducer.

You may find cheaper else where.
  14. Hi All Urgently need a 92mm English diff pinion flange, the one fitted to Cortina's and Corsair's please. This is the middle sized flange out of the three fitted to English diffs. Thank you.
