    Pinto backfiring

    Are you 110% sure the firing order is right?
  2. Aye, insurance...…..they're just out to hump everyone! Self employment is great now I'm back working for a big company......it wasn't for me!
  3. Sorry to hear this Glenn, maybe insurance will pay out £8k?! Merc still produce a lot of bits for their old cars?
  4. https://www.freeads.co.uk/uk/buy-sell/motors/classic-cars/35657011/1965-mercedes-190-fintail-saloon--may-take-px-/view#.XVGz4ndFzIU Glenn.....good luck in the 'tina hunt.
  5. I wonder what the seller gave for it?...….£100 ??

    Ghia wheels

    What's the date on the tyres? Are the "square holes" dove grey coloured? Any close up pictures? They look good I think.
  7. That seller in Oz is a joker !! I see that mk4 is available but shows 2 different trim profiles as opposed to mk5 which only shows 1 ??………..price is the same though so maybe it's an error on their site? Will message them I think.
  8. Can anyone tell me where I can buy some new roof gutter trim for my mk5 ? I've been on E.Kent Trim's website and whilst they have a listing for it, it's out of stock. Any where else stock this stuff?? Looking for new not 2nd hand. Thanks.
  9. If this ( https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ford-cortina-mk5-1-6l-5-speed-low-mileage/264374704870?hash=item3d8df5dae6:g:Fv4AAOSw9T9dEKol ) sells for what it's bid at the moment then the above 2.0GL is an absolute steal?!
  10. Nice looking mk5 here?...…… https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-cortina-mk5-2-0-gl/223552965611?hash=item340ccb8beb:g:c-YAAOSwnJVdBQcj NCTS
  11. Wow, that looks very nice!!
  12. What now, are they good or need paint/powder-coating? Have you got nuts to go with them?
  13. That sounds about right. I was thinking similar. That first link for the e-bay ones isn't that far off the mark I suppose?
  14. Very nice set here...… https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Cortina-Ghia-Mk4-Mk5-13x5-5j-Alloy-Wheels-Capri-Escort-Fiesta-Mk1-Mk2-Mk3/173645033461?hash=item286e0ceff5:g:wewAAOSwgVJb7y2u:rk:8:pf:0 …..or 2 here if you can collect.... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-cortina-ghia-alloy-wheels-tyres/183630561526?hash=item2ac13c00f6:g:CF8AAOSwe9VcN8RG:rk:2:pf:1 What are Ghia wheels worth these days?
  15. A better ad than the Doc's maybe?! Nice looking car, I personally wouldn't let the MOT history put me off....but it does give you an idea as to what bits of the car need a thorough inspection.
  16. It is a shame really, proper pictures would attract proper interest? Some car dealers show great pictures that WILL sell a car, I myself have bought cars without actually seeing the car in the flesh/metal...………..the Doc's pictures look good as art-work, but I suspect they're not a true perspective of the actual item for sale?
  17. I had it in my head that the recessed bits were "dove grey" in colour.....same as RS 4-spokes? Anyone?...………..
  18. A lot of pictures that I've previously posted are gone.....will they appear at some point?!
  19. A Rostyle is a Rostyle ! I'd call your's GL rims........or dartboard style as you say.
  20. The seller's paying the postage ?!
  21. Due to replace the points and condenser on my car and before I waste lots of time looking.....can anyone recommend a reliable source of QUALITY parts?
  22. :thumbup: Nice looking car. GLWS

    Mk5 Brake M/C

    :thumbup: Thanks.

    Mk5 Brake M/C

    Pretty sure it's Girling calipers on my car.....is it safe to assume it'll be a Girling type M/C that I need?? Or does it matter? Cheers.
