  1. Nice work on keeping this Cortina on the road.
  2. One complete box ready for action. Body work will start again in a couple of weeks so looking forward to finally getting progress
  3. Used new gear selector forks as the old ones had nice big wear grooves which causes the box to jump out of gear. Put in the selector rods and then wired the rod securing bolts.
  4. Put in the lay gear and input shaft. Used a bit of weed eater cord to lift the lay gear into plus once the mainshaft installed so the layshaft can be slid in. Also used alloy input shaft housing and rear mainshaft bearing carrier.
  5. Assembled the mainshaft all new bearings and fitted the needle rollers to the laygear.
  6. Finally assembled the gearbox last weekend. Here's the main case ready for the internals
  7. Fuck mate you can't turn a trick! I laughed so much at your go jack fail. Thanks for brightening up my day
  8. Looks pretty nice! Will be a great cruiser once you sorted all the mechanical gremlins
  9. Natural habitat for one of these is a gas station! Good old ride though and pretty well bullet proof
  10. I used to run triple SU,s on my mk3 in the 80's. Never had many issues at all with tuning. Key is to have a good adjustable linkages. I'm gathering all the parts to do a lowline Mk 2 Zodiac build once my GT is finished. Have a Mk 3 engine with Bedford pistons prettyy big cam, big valve head gas flowed and triple SU,s. going to run a Mk 3 box and steering column, negative camber front crossmember and it all slammed on 8" steel widened wheels all old school.
  11. You running triple SU's on it? Bob Homewood is the guru hot Zephyr engine builder
  12. Burtons in the U.K. have it all. Burtonpower.com
  13. Stripped an old gearbox for the main case and then stripped and cleaned the mainshaft etc ready for reassembly. Hopefully I should get the mainshaft assembled tomorrow and it all installed in the case.
  14. Looks great. I just put new springs standard height and Koni adjustable shocks all around on mine and the handling has been totally transformed.
  15. Rebuilt the headlights today with mostly NOS parts. Should have who is going to complete the bodywork sorted in the next couple of weeks after the CMS fiasco.
