  1. Hi. Multi Grats. Regards Mouse..
  2. Hi Gang. After removing Ethanol from E10 fuel,what have I got left?? What octain will it be and will it be just plain unleaded?? Regards Mouse..
  3. Hi Dude. Look up Captain Scarlet blogs on Buy Sell Cortina he notes some info.. Regards Mouse..
  4. Hi Dude. Depending on which servo it is you can buy an overall kit. There have been 3 that i know of. 1 Girling power stop. 2 lockheed remote servo . 3 One that is made in Vietnam. If It's a Girling power stop they are the best It's a bit of a faf doing it but well worthwhile. Best of luck.. Regards Mouse. PS Keep me in the loop..
  5. Hi Dude. Try removing the vacuum servo pipe.but make sure you block of the pipe to manifold or the engine will stall I'm interested to know.keep me in the loop. Regards Mouse..
  6. Hi. Thank's for your comments. Regards Mouse..
  7. Hi. The problem is that I have new discs new callipers and pads. I have tried the tests you mention and all you say I am getting. With the engine turned off if I pump the pedal you can hear the servo hissing and the pedal comer up to the top. I have been told that it may have to bed in and that I am expecting it to be like a modern car. Do you think that 11inches HG would be enough or do you think that an electric vacuum pump would do any good?? Your reply would be good. Regards Mouse..
  8. Hi Gang. I'm still having trouble with the brakes on my Mk.1 Tina. It has a 1600 escort crossflow fitted and a servo. I have had a Vacuum gauge on the inlet manifold at tick over it shows 11 Inches of vacuum. The question is how much Vacuum do I need to operate a remote servo?? Info would be good.. Regards Mouse..
  9. Hi. Thank's for that info.. Regards Mouse..
  10. Hi. Is the Mk.k3/5 dual master cylinder?? I am running a single Master cylinder.. Regards Mouse..
  11. Hi Good evening. The master cylinder I have on is actually .7mm That relates to almost 18 mm. I have never seen one bigger than this have never seen a 22 mm This is classed as 19 mm. The reason I went down this road was because with having Escort Mk.1/2 callipers the corresponding master cylinder for Escort Mk.1/2 is .7 mm. I have been advised to fit a 12 volt Vacuum pump. What do you think.. Regards Mouse..
  12. Hi Gang. I have a 1965 Tina Mk.1 The brakes are crap I have Escort Mk.1/2 struts with Escort calipers. I am using a 19mm master cylinder with a remote servo. The engine is a 1690 Escort with a fast road cam and twin choke Weber. When I pump the pedal the engine speeds up so there is a certain amount of vacuum just how much I don't know. Any info would be appreciated.. Regards Mouse..
  13. Hi Gang. Has any one out there done an electric power steering conversion on a 1965 ish Tina Mk.1? I have an escort steering rack conversion and a Sierra column I am running 185/13 Tyres. As I am well over 21 I am having difficulty with heavy steering. Any info would be good. Regards Mouse..
