Re: Simply Ford 2019

This was another great show put on by Beaulieu and the weather was kind to us. I didn't bother taking any photo's as most of the cars are the same every year. But someone caught me leaving unfortunately he must be more of an Escort and Sierra fan as he didn't catch much of me, but you can hear me :)...

Re: Haynes Breakfast Meets 2019

Thanks Andy and Andrew,

MOT booked for tomorrow. It's always a worrying time, but hopefully all should be okay. Looking forward to the Haynes meet so I'll be extra disappointed if the car fails.

All the best

Re: Battery cable clips. Help / pics required.

If I remember correctly the clip is solid around the wire hole and splits where it goes through the crossmember. I think the ones you've found would not hold the wire/cable securely. These might work https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/50-Pcs-Black-Nylon-Car-Auto-Cable-Strap-Push-Mount-Wire-Tie-Retainer-Clip...

I think the Granada 2.8 rotor arm didn't have a limiter fitted, however the 2.8 is a fragile motor and doesn't like being rev'd that highly. Best to stick with a standard one or end up with a big engine bill :(

Re: Haynes Breakfast Meets 2019

I went with my son in his ST in February, convoyed there with 3 Focus RS's a later ST and a little Fiat Abarth. Scary drive on icy roads getting there :drive: glad I wasn't in the Capri. But what a great meet, loads to look at and a nice resturant for breakfast. MK1 Keiran got us leaving at 10.56 on...
