    Mk5 parts,

    Never understood why sellers think that by threatening to scrap something suddenly makes someone want to go and buy it . We've seen it with cars, 'if no one gives me the unrealistic price I'm asking for this Cortina then I'm going to scrap it/modify it/break it/banger race it..........' Anyway, the scrap value of that lot is probably two or three pounds so like Tony says why not lower the starting price?

    Mk5 parts,

    Putting a proper link to your ad might help.
  4. Those reproduction/aftermarket bolts are just a standard M8 bolt. The original bolts were a type of shoulder bolt with a standard M8 thread and 13mm AF head but with a fatter main body than a normal bolt. The original spacers and washers had a larger inside diameter to accommodate the shoulder bolt which is why if you use them with the aftermarket bolts then the spacers and washers don't fit snugly to the bolt. Sounds like you're looking to source originals but they're going to be difficult to find as even any cars being broken for parts are likely to have had these link bolts replaced at some point in their lives and probably with the narrower bolts.
  5. Craig of the Sheffield Cortina Centre will probably be along to help you out with those bits.
  6. Go into a Ford parts dept and ask for an EFL90.

  8. Remember if your using the ICH with helium 5 you'll need to adjust the jets as these were initially designed for helium 4
  9. LED ones Gaz, they're more resistant to space dust than standard ones .
  10. Don't suppose you've got a spare cosmic alternator have you Gaz? Mine's blown again. Oh and a set of Starcraft tail lights?
  11. Last taxed 28 years ago, I'd try the big scrapyard in the sky for that one Gaz.
  12. It's a 2.3 Ghia, unfortunately far from mint https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MK4-Cortina-2-3-Ghia/173866720715?hash=item287b439dcb:g:8uAAAOSw3AFcq0N1
