i was thinking about rear brakes and doing a disc conversion as i didnt have any rear brakes for it.

but i then thought the easiest way would be to use factory aussie drums...they came on a 6 cylinder cortina soooooooooo must work well on a cortina with a 6 in it. (keep cert man happy aswell) and its not going to have a million hp.

so thanks to @J-W-G igot my hands on a set of factory aussie assembled rear drums..seen better days but nothing a rebuild wont fix.......and the best price.

so here they are.

and after a few hours i got the backing plates all cleaned up ready to have the backs painted in POR15.

1 of them had some damage (looks like someone lost a wheel at some point)  i managed to straighten it so the drum wont rub

thought i would have a play with falcon TFI dizzy i had that came with all the injection bits i bought.

only wanted was the hall effect  as a trigger for the ecu and also for the oil pump.

so pulled it a part cleaned it up and cut the top off and capped it...rebuilt with a new plug.......good to go

well now it's a new year and the girls  have gone back to school .........it's time.

so the old girl is off to blasting... hopefully  we can lift it off the trailer once it's done and not sweet it off.

the rust issue wasn't as bad as i thought it would be.....there were no surprises at all...

not bad for a car that was destined  for scrap yard

132456910_dsrust10.jpg.d675add45abbf7aa426d5730802a91db.jpg

111655070_dsrust11.jpg.9d58286d548d7cd465fddea2f1fc47c5.jpg

straitened the jack mount and put back on.

503723290_dsrust13.jpg.6dcaf32289dd0e562189eb1f4bce532f.jpg

then there is this bit of the jacking point....it was stuffed

571453543_dsrust16.jpg.a759b65b166e0ff11c8b196b840b6810.jpg

this is all i could keep

2017664734_dsrust17.jpg.0a2dfc8afecd6608f8724610ae8bdf79.jpg

 

so made this

2046671646_dsrust19.jpg.62d37bc8ca863cf064cf5eb16c771737.jpg

and this is it all done.....time to move on to another bit
