    Very nice. Would'n't mind that carpet.

    The end of the wire. Think of a ring terminal with a bit cut out and it's horse shoe shaped. Nowadays these terminals are U shaped. Nor can you get the little double ended spade terminal for coils etc. Would make life easier for converting cars to electronic ignition without cutting the plugs off original wires.
  3. Good luck on finding a original front valance for a mk4, these are none existant. Best bet would be a mk5 one and weld the four holes up. Magnum panels in Rochdale do them for £117 though they are cheaper at Motomobile in Germany at £79 though then you have to factor in the postage. Under rad support panel will cost an arm and a leg to buy too, keep your eye on evilbay or contact that Clomoco fella who advertizises on there and maybe see if he will do a deal. I have both bits (aftermarket), but want to keep them just in case i do a "shove a car up the bum with a tow bar fitted" scenario. Been there, done that! :blush:
  4. Had a check, only got one that's been blasted and powder coated, fitted with a new inner bush but will require a new ball joint fitting. The old joint has been removed so it's a straight forward job to just bolt up a new ball joint. Also have a rusty pair that will need a serious blast / clean up and the old bushes and ball joints binning and new parts fitting. £15 for the nice one or £8 for the pair of nasty looking ones.
  5. I have a few. Pretty sure i have a pair already cleaned and power coated, or some that will want a good clean up. Can check how many i have tomorrow for you.
  6. Let us know how you get on.
  7. Don't know to be honest. I have FORD letters that have the little spring clips on the back (mk2 type) and FORD letters that have a nut fitted to the pins and both Ds are the same 25mm between centres. Have you checked the back of the bootlid skin to see if anything has been done there like welded up holes or any redrilling etc?
  8. Nice car. Just what you need in this heatwave weather we are having at the moment. B) I have some Initial Ds here that are not new. Pin spacing between centers is 25mm.
  9. Tried this one tonight and it's fooked. Slow and fast speed work ok but it won't function on intermittant. Sorry fella. Aaj389 looks to be your man. :thumbup:
  10. Found you one but has seen better days. Rust around the four connecters and i havn't opened it though it could be alright. Can try it on my mk4 tomorrow night to see if it works if you like.
  11. Will have a look for you fella. I have some looms about me but can't check until Saturday. Still want that glass, i have a week off work from the 26th and will call and collect at some point if that's ok.
  12. Mk 4 Cortina. Ignition wiring with the grey 3 pin plug. Mk 4 Cortina. Ignition wiring with the grey 3 pin plug. Cheers.
  13. Your right there. I lobbed two coils off a pair of standard rear springs once and it still would not go down!! I'm still interested in that ignition switch you have fella. Can pay by paypal if you send me an addy. Thanks.
