  3. Hi, what you have i think is a sandwich plate for a pinto with an c3 automatic gearbox (starter on the drivers side ,I need one of those but the other hand, starter on the passenger side. Thank you anyway, hopes this helps you to identify it. the one to fit the type 9 five speed is the same. i believe, as a type E 4 speed thank you anyway regards
  4. Hi anyone out there got a standard sandwich plate that fits between a 2.0 pinto and a type 9 5 speed they no longer need thanks in advance
  5. yh , thank you for that, i did this and it improved slightly, im having the prop balanced later this week, its also suggested that the gearbox rear bearing could be shot?
  6. Hi All, just complete a transmission overhaul on my mk 1 and i have found ive got a high frequency vibration that appears to be speed related and starts at about 60mph could it be propshaft balancing? any ideas thanks in advance Mark
  7. Hi All, having spent a long time restoring and modifying my Mk1 ive decided i'd like to get away from the old cortina gearbox and so fitted a close ratio 2000E box. but i still used the old sprung clutch cover but bedcause the engine is now producing approx 145bhp the clutch is slipping under full throttle. So i fitted a diaphram clutch cover. The issue i have is that a diaphram cover is not as deep as a spring cover so the release bearing is too far away to operate properly. Anyone out there ever had the same issues and been able to rectify it. thank you in advance
