Re: Hello from Northern Ireland!

Looks lovely. Curious to have no rear view mirrors either inside or out! Personally I don't like the black bumpers! Better than rusty though like mine!

Re: Lifting car for engine removal - how does everyone do it?

I support the car on stands under the front of the sills using BIG load spreading planks. It only needs to be this high to get the unit underneath, then the body can be lowered to a low and safer position to bolt the front mountings on before jacking the whole lot up to attach the gearbox mount!

Re: 2500 S Project

Great write up!! Still would have done the both out underneath method however. A piece of rope holding the suspension arms to each other means the shell is still moveable!
Looking forward to the next instalment!

Mk1 saloon rear valence required

The rally car needs a new rear valence, it is very rusty and a bit bent too! Anyone got one squirrelled away? Or perhaps a good second hand part at a push?

Re: Thoughts on engine refresh

Compression test using manual power ( big socket and crank handle to turn it) with all the plugs out will give a good idea of rings etc. If you are going to do the thrust washers anyway, you will see one main bearing anyway, one big end cap will show the state of them, and you can visually inspect t...
