  1. so the old girl has a rear end whine ..I500gt thought it could be the diff and gave me another to swap out..........good cunt. i thought it sounded like the bearing on the passenger side so i just popped out the 1 from the spear diff and the suspected whining 1. put the spear 1 in fro now to see if it stops the whine........but judging by the mud like shit (looks like its been in water )covering the axle i think i might pop the other axle out and the pigs head and clean it all out.....then put the head and other axle in from the spaer diff..........and new oil
  2. just another week with a pinto back in my life. fitted a 10" electric fan i had sitting in the garage wired up to a switch for now (must be getting wise in my old age...even used a relay and no twisty twisty tappy tappy )till the thermo fan controller thingy turns up. gets nice and hot now and defrosts the window within minutes not days. also the battery light use to stay on for a while and the battary didnt charge the best..so i pulled the alternator off and is seen better day the old man had a new high amp sierra one sitting that use to be an extra one on his camper so i used that and the engine bay is so nice and quiet now....and battery light goes straight out.......fucking bingo...another issues sorted.
  3. dude it looks fucking awesome ay. you should be proud of yourself
  4. also thinking of taking the fan off and fitting a electric fan and thermo switch...
  5. well had so much planned for this week both working on my mk5 and karls (i500gt) mk4 but man flu had differant ideas and i died from it........all week. so having not been out side this week and it pissed down for the first 3 days i had a look at the mk5 yesterday and found some good news and bad news. bad news ....it leaks.....alot. (kinda think its worse because its sitting higher at the front) . (and not sure where its leaking in the boot.) good news . judging but the amount of water sitting in the car (a good 2") the floors dont have rust holes. now with having water leaks and the carpet all wet the 1st thank that came to mind .......fix the sounds so i fitted a new kenwood stereo some old Carrozzeria TS-X350 speakers .some of these bad boys ...been sitting in the garage for atleast 7 years an amp and an electric guard mounted aerial.......for the wank factor. must admit the speakers sound awesome and no holes were made in the parcel shelf. then its time for some winter maintenance. so drained the water (no anti freeze in site.) ..pulled the thermostat and it was ugly. after cleaning up all the faces and boiling the new thermostat and fully flushing the system including the heater.it was time to go back together. the thermostat housing is slowly corroding away (should last till i build a new motor/slap something jappa in the hole) also cleaned out the overflow bottle and it was thick mud so all cleaned now....added some antifreeze and ran up to temp without leaks. heater makes a fucking noise so had a look and half the screws holding the fucker in are missing (makes me think if water is coming in from under it now) thats all for now.. water leaks will be next on my list.....oh and bearing whine.
  6. all in due time mate..
  7. talk shit about it here....cheers
  8. thanks to Karl a nice set of v6 ghia wheels fit perfectly
  9. hi all. thought i would start a thread on my mk5 it is kinds daily driver/fixer upper as i go. as title states its a 83 mk5 ghia with 2.0 pinto power house.. its wof reg and all in all it drives pretty nice and starts 1st time..... when i bought it it had 15x7 JBW minilite replica kinda wheels and flairs(very well made) but all thats not my thing...... the inside and engine bay are pretty clean and the body work is ok....ish has a few dents and marks and a lot of surface rust the worst part would be the left front valance where it meets the guard. so 1st thing was to remove the wheels and flairs and get them sold and go back to some form of standard wheels.
  10. looks good man......colour looks close to what i painted my mk1 van.
  11. a dude down the line bought the shell for a drag car but i dont know what happened to it from there... was talkng to a dude down that way about cortina parts we got on to old fords we have owned and he some how has the plates , tags and cert for it...got them for 150 bucks
  12. good man.. i forgot all about the mk1 wagon..... i miss my van with the ca18 most days and would do it again in a heart beat
  13. 2 things dude 1st ....so glad someone we know got this .....as stated it is a car of legendary status and deserves to be loved and bought back to the road in a daily manor .. and yes mate you have FUCKING plowed threw the work..keep the up dates coming man. 2nd....still got the mk1 ay still got the CA as well?
  14. well its been pretty slow at the moment so i took some parts in to build a long block and started looking at making the supercharger side of the motor. so i made a bracket that i could sit the SC on and it would keep the whole unit level with the engine/crank and still be able to slide it back and forth ....mainly just to see what pulley on the crack i want to use. so made sure i clear the fuel rail and also have access to all the injector plugs....and cut an old manifold down to start looking at the manifold
  15. sooooo i pulled the inlet off to see if i can get the SC in there ....i was thinking in on its side and relocate the oil filter and shit. but fuck me!!!! tons of room even some room to play under it for a inlet manifold and some sort of intercooleing ....me thinking water to air was kinda thinking cut a section from an old cheap intercooler and make end tanks to flow in and flow out the front and pump cold water threw where the charge air would normaly blow and then the charged air from the SC threw where the out side air would blow.......if you know what i mean.
