    Crankshaft sensors sold spark plug cover sold
  3. Awards Do

    Booked but payment didn't go through on the 1st attempt via the store, so I did another transaction. Who do I need to contact about this to make sure I've not paid twice?
  4. FHR MSA stickers

    Very difficult to forge the hologram label on a HANS. Much easier to forge the MSA sticker.
  5. If we are coming out of Europe what has this got to do with us? We should be lobbying the MSA to ignore it, not to waste our license fees on pursuing this. Mind you the MSA appear to have plenty of time on their hands! Have a read of this, you couldn't make this up:
  6. Vauxhall redtop 20XE engine parts

    Sorry I do have one but I need to keep it for a spare.
  7. Vauxhall redtop 20XE engine parts

    The ones I've found so far are both 92 degrees. I might have a 80? degree one somewhere.
  8. FHR MSA stickers

    Hans damage will be looked at too. I have first hand experience! Make sure you watch the scrutineers when they handle your equipment, especially ones with butter fingers!

  10. Diff whine

    You need to drive it in 4th gear to isolate any gearbox whine. If the whine is still there is is going to be the diff. Drive the back of the car up some ramps, get underneath it and turn the propshaft backwards and forwards by hand. If there is a lot of slop the diff will have a lot of backlash which is your likely cause.
  11. I plan to be there Friday eve and Saturday. Can you put me down for the meal please Graham? Ta
  12. Westfield Tandem Brake master cylinder with reservoir and level sensor. This was fitted to my Escort for a couple of years and was removed recently, so is in perfect working order. I have now fitted an original Escort one to my car, hence no longer needed. It will need a replacement pushrod or the original one adapting because I shortened the pushrod to make it fit the escort. This can be easily changed by removing a circlip. This item is £185 from Westfield new. £50 + postage. I can send it for £5 with myhermes.
  13. 2 broken baulk rings and detached blocker bars from the 4th / 3rd synchro hub + a layshaft that's rotated and destroyed the case at the front and the rear tailhousing. The bearing surface of the layshaft has picked up, the rear bearing (big one) has broken into bits. There are lots of metal particles inside everywhere which have worked through all the bearings. The gear teeth have worn strangely due out of alignment mesh. It could be saved but a donor case is required and quite a few expensive quaife parts need to be bought. It looks to have happened over a period of time rather than suddenly looking by the state of the oil contamination and wear to teeth. Detached blocker bars are an unrelated issue I think, but that's what caused the gear selection issues. I'll try to get some photos posted if I get a chance.
  14. Hand brake cable

    Cheers Jeff, unfortunately I don't have an old cable to go by, but will get a sierra one and have a play
