    Hi fat rob

    mk5 cortina parts

      How is big steve. Thats a blast from the past

  2. early 1.6 Mk5s had the inertia starter
  3. not sure but post a link up and i'll do it
  4. the soft feel upper spec ones crack all the time :( lower spec hard ones are easyer to find), i'm after one for a mates S1 orion Ghia but it looks like we'll have to use a L spec on as it's all i could find amongst me banger mates

    low comp commercial engine uses low comp pistons and the 1.6 cam with matching dizzy/advance curve, thats all, nothing even remotely performance about it i'm sorry to say. some later pinto engined transits with EGR use a retard/advance unit on the dizzy, which is usefull for a turbo instal but they dont all have it, they usually just have a normal vac electronic dizzy same as the carb sierra.
  6. heck is german for rear (ish) Perhaps the OP has been looking at the german RS catalog and not realised spoiler is the same in both languages and heck is the german for rear, or he is german and couldn't translate the word, either way there you go
  7. If you use firefox use adblockpluss in your browser, it blocks the adverts and speeds PB back up again, works fine for me having said that PB is the slowest hosting site there is as far as i can tell, much easyer to upload pics from your PC straight to BSC using the uploeader and cut out any other hosting site
  8. I was going to ask the same question, the spanish one lol, well known about but rarely seen over here so thank you for posting it ! 2.8 EFI unleaded heads ?
  9. Not you at all mate i moved them to the technical section as they were technical questions, sorry if it caused you any issues it's my job to tidey the forum so appologies for any inconveniance it's a fine line between a general question and a tech question so if i get it wronge on the odd accasion appologies again
  10. If you are already running the box what is the issue you are having ? if your propsahft is hitting the rear of the box you most likely have an auto prop which is longer than the manual prop, in which case you just neen a manual prop ? you can just fit the front half of a capri prop tp the rear of the cortina prop, no need to cut anything, or do you have a one piece prop? if you can claryfie what you have we can probably sort it out but TBH i'm a bit confused at the mo

    mk5 windscreen

    Need to know what make you have fitted, should be a tripplex on an early car, there are 2 sizes and need the matching rubber to go with them
  12. I suspect you may be "floored" when you find out
