    The van reverse lights are worse, literally just a Hella universal clear lamp.

    I must be an Escort train spotter . I noticed the lack of reverse lights straight away. I presumed you had deleted them on purpose.

    Was it green at some stage, or is that blue paint affected by the stripper?

    That idea has been around for years. Proven upgrade.

    I really like how this build is going. Looking forward to seeing it up close.

    I'm a bit far away, otherwise I would give you a hand.

    That is definitely worth a try. Then Turn off the gas at the tank, and try to start it 2 or 3 times to purge gas from the lines. There is a drain plug under the converter. It's a brass plug from memory, maybe 10mm. Drain any crap from it. There is the solenoid on top of the converter. Undo the electrical plug, and the small bolt, sit it all aside. There is a brass piece the solenoid attaches to that screws into the housing, maybe a 13 or 14 mm spanner required, and a pair of pointy nosed pliers. Carefully remove the screw on piece, and the plunger and spring below it. Be careful as this can fly apart as it is being disassembled. Below this is a jet, which can be removed with a flat screwdriver. Clean everything well with Carby cleaner, including spraying into where the jet screws in. Reassemble, including the drain plug. Open the tank valve, and cycle the key, but don't start. Check for leaks with a mixture of dishwashing liquid and water squirted over the fittings etc. and cycle the key a couple more times. If there are no leaks, go ahead and start. If you are not confident, is probably better to get someone who is experienced with LPG

    That said, I prefer the way they drive with a Kent, other than the power.

    I would argue (and be confidant of winning) that an engineers report is not required. The MK1 was available from the factory as a 2.0l Pinto, and this is easily proven. There were some factory Australian delivered mk1 RS2000's.

    I don't know about Spanish, but Valencia sounds right.

    BTW, I think the Zetec is an excellent idea, especially dressed up as a BDA

    Keep in mind that even though the KA engine is Kent based, very little, if any, of the engine is of any use on an Escort Kent engine.
