Amazing how much dirt get’s kicked up by the guys ahead when you’re trying to nose by.
So here it is, in all of it’s green(Neptune!), manual wagon glory!
Just got recommended this by Youtube.
The photographer from the club championship race posted pictures!!
Unsure if scared over parking next to a Volvo brick that already suckerpunched it once before, or 24 years of age is just when you start being unable to contain your fluids.
When the nearby fireworks factory goes boom and burns the neighbourhood down.
Header-Supra for your time.
She’s mated to the tranny now. Oil filter is stuck on the old engine so i’ll need to buy a new one instead of being able to reuse it.
This is the crank pulley for the timing belt. Yes that’s some belt leftover wound tightly onto the wheel.
This thing came out..
So, as some of you will have read, the engine in the Escort decided timing was overated and the cams stopped following each other as
god Ford intended, which cost the head and 4 marked pistons. Extra kick in the ‘nads that i had just done an oil change+filter 50km prior.
Boroscope into cylinder #3 and #2, #3 looks to have bits of metal in it, all 4 have valve-markings punched in the top of them. They’re normally flat-top pistons.
Am i right in assuming it’s trying the blow the filling out, but since it’s a stainless muffler there isn’t any large-enough rustholes for it to go through, so it’d seemingly just clogging the perforated tubing?
Such well executed, much wow!
Motor mounted, chain shortend and tensioned, test run performed.
My feels for this car accurately summed up in a 10 seconds clip.
Yes, it’s meant for kids. No, i can fit and pedal in it. Yes, it does wheelies if you don’t sit hunched over.
The impossible happend. The unicorn of rainbows spread aparth thy clouds and entered the human realm. A light shone upon me from the heavens above. Somebody a 2.5hr drive away listed up a set of coilovers, for my Escort. A set of KW even. Had a nagging idea his price would be super high compared to a cheaper brand,…
Ford either decided that a) our cars will never make it to 100k, or b) that’s silly, ofcourse they won’t.
So, it rolls over at 99.999 and resets. Effectivly giving me a brand new car.
Now to find somebody to sell it to...
