  1. And not forgetting the Fo Mo Co stamped in lettering
  2. Yes, the rev' counter will (should) work with what ever system you choose. I went for Lumenition on my mk2 GT and I've never looked back since. The main issue was the Distributor shaft was worn causing sideways "play" setting the points gap was as you can imagine. Coupled with an annoying misfire just when you raised the revs to take off into traffic resulting in a stall or way too many revs for a long clutch life expectancy ! Because of it .... If I had a mk5 I'd be looking into fitting a Sierra / Granada ? Electronic distributor coupled with its "module" ? Plug and play shouldn't be any easier
  3. More Gov dot UK fear ? I don't expect it'll make any difference at all. Maybe worth upgrading / replacing rubber pipes or hoses ?
  4. Uniroyal ? Got these on mine ............ https://www.tyres-outlet.co.uk/product/uniroyal/rallye-380/175-80-r13/r-256667
  5. I suppose that's what Auctions are about really. Remembering the couple who wanted a "wind up Gramophone" they got separated at the entrance to the sale and suddenly realised the lot they were interested was being bid on ... It turned out afterwards they were the only two people bidding on it and were bidding against each other ! The Cortina in the Mathewson's auction exited me for about half an hour, until I realised it would likely "go" way beyond its reserve. And in fairness was (mileage aside, with its "ticking cam" heard on the video) a truer value given its issues and need for plenty of TLC and further expenditure.
  6. This one https://mathewsons.co.uk/auctions/auction-dates/vehicles/17162-1979-ford-cortina-s I was almost interested in it .... Almost.
  7. I liked the comment Derek Mathewson once made about mind changing, on that Bangers and Cash programme. "Some owners can't decide when to wash them, never mind sell them !"
  8. Last V5 issued in 2016. Could be
  9. I can't wait to get all four of these on ... 175 80 13 Uniroyal, Rallye
  10. To the best of my knowledge, no strengthening plate. Just the inner wing and the "bucket" underneath ..... On a GT.
  11. Hmm, ..... I've clicked past that particular listing. I'm not sure TBH, it certainly is what it is. Time to ask the seller for some more info' maybe. Curious, I wonder are the elements stuck to the glass like, as in accessory, or etched in, as in manufactured like that ?
  12. Thank you, that's "brill" and a tick off the list. Could you please PM (DM) me with your payment details, I'll let you have my address for forwarding the part. Very many thanks Steve.
  13. As per title really, I'm on the lookout for a "good" Triplex type heated rear window for a mark 2. I know, I know, just asking ... Oh and a 1600E spare wheel clamp, please ?
  14. I've always tried to use 175/80 's they're the "tallest" section you can get (I believe) and don't affect the overall "gearing" https://www.oponeo.co.uk/tools/tyre-size-calculator
  15. Hmmm., I've never unscrambled the Mercedes model code ether, gentlemen, not to mention the Engine codes ether ! I've recently bought a BMW, long story, blame it on Windows 10 ! And they "do it" too. It seems I have an "E46, with an N42, B18 Engine" . I'll look up Russel's latest acquisition with interest.
