  1. Pulled out my old 65 Mk 1 GT out of storage today where it’s been sitting for about 3 years. Chucked a battery in after about a miniute of cranking it burst into life. The engine is as fumey as fuck so I reckon the rings are all gummed up and the tacho has stopped working plus a couple of lights.I have owned it about 14 years and in that time done about 2000 Miles if that. The paint is shit with humidity blisters and I bought it that colour which I have always hated, it was originally an Ermine White car, so I’ll work out in the next couple of weeks what to do with it. Current thinking is rebuild the engine and go over all the mechanicals, get Chris R to sort the electrics and get it back on the road. Then either sell it or repaint it Ermine white and keep it.

  4. Hi All, Have been a member of the forums for a while but haven't contributed a lot. Went along to the monthly meet in Ellerslie last week for the first time and met the Escort brigade in the pub. Someone suggested I should post to introduce myself and my car so here goes. I bought a 1064 Mk1 Cortina GT in 2011 which looked like this at the time. Turned out the engine needed a bit of work so I decided to go for a YB engine. It has taken a lot longer than I had hoped but the car is now not far from being complete. Fingers crossed it may be on the road by the October monthly meet. Will post some more pics when I work out how to resize them... Cheers Nick Discussion- //oldschool.co.nz/index.php?/topic/50272-sods-64-cortina-cosworth/

  6. So a couple of months ago I was trawling trade me. and came across this thing on a $1 reserve auction. Threw a cheeky low ball bid in and took it home for the grand price of $1600. and it has sat in the shed since. Car is mostly complete. with all panels and glass, just a few cracked lenses on the tail lights and front indicators. Most of the body work is complete with a few small areas that need attention. Running a 2.0 Pinto as factory but might be open to a transplant at a later date. Current plan is to finish the rust and panel work. new paint job and new rubbers before the glass goes back in. has had Mk5 front seats put in, so will probably look at getting the interior redone so it is matching.
  7. The Dream started in 2001, a need for speed, something crazy and unique. Something Oldschool! I had cut my teeth with lots of escort previously, the 2l pinto motor just didn't have the power I wanted. My first choice was a cosworth engine, but I needed both kidney to drink beer with, so that wasn't an option At the time the sr20det wasn't that popular engine, drifting wasn't around. i m manged to track down a complete engine, g/box and loom for 2k. mrmk1 was getting a new heart transplant! More Power Required Big Diff and Rear Disc Brakes. - Shorten 7.5inch F series toyota crown diff, 3.9 Ma61 supra LSD Custom Fueling and tank by Herbert's Fabrication Roll cage was fabricated by Jono Climo.. the master craftsman!
  8. Hey everyone, does anyone know a really good and fair priced gearbox rebuilder in the Auckland area. Need one asap as the guys I was using have been mucking me around. Need to get gearbox ready by next weekend if possible.
  9. I am wanting to build a complete new exhaust for my MK2 1600X/Flow Cortina. I have Coby extractors and 45mm piping plus a Coby resonator or two. Could anyone give me some advice on what layout I should have. I have heard someone saying that having a smaller resonator in the middle and a slightly bigger one at the back is good. Also will I need a muffler or just put in some exhaust wool? I am wanting it to be relativly lound but not annoying, I am wanting it to pop and cackle on deacceleration but understand this my not be possible with the stock cam.
  10. Here it is, latest addition-owned it a week, the most money i've EVER spent buying a car. Why? cos i'm an idiot & was looking for something old school & tidy that didn't need rebuilt......... & the avenger's getting tattier AND I STILL CAN'T FIND THE BLOODY CRANK WE NEED FOR IT'S NEW MOTOR!!!!!!! Crap picture, take more tomorrow- the others are too big to upload. Anyway, it's the budget model- 1300 automatic, it's straight outside & really tidy inside, now the tyres have been pumped up it's a little less pathetic to steer. That about covers the good bits (cept the auto bit) The work that needs doing; sort engine over heating had a new w.o.f when i got it - tail lights dont work! service the autobox- oils black & sluggish gear changes surely theres more power in there somewhere, it'll crack 100kph JUST!!!!. can't see it handling a club run in the country yet looks like exhaust needs a bit of sorting too Theres no plans to modify it much at all ( unless i can't live with the slushbox then i'll get a manual for it). Theres been some talk of engine swops, but the avenger's gunna supply the horsepower fix & handling wise it's the better car of the 2
  11. Hey all. I need a little help on my mk2 cortina 1300 engine. I cant seem to get the motor to start or even pop or bang.

Which is the order I put the plugs on? im not a hundy which plug goes where on the distributer. Any help would be appreciated. Just so you know its a 1300 with 1600 valves and gt cam. Im using a crc jump start not fuel.
