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

    Lgp dedicated ford ticks over but won't stay alive

    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.

    It's one of those situations where you are better off going the extra mile

    Those consoles are too hard to find, so don't cut it up.

    A couple of people I know have done the type 9 conversion. The best way to make the shifter hole look right is to cut it out in a rectangular section, but with the hole offset the needed amount. Then reverse it, and weld back in.(if that makes sense)

    That would be the stock tank in an SS

    Yes, I am fortunate to be in the position to have a few MK1 Escort 2 doors. They are now quite expensive. I also wish I had hung onto the MK2 2 doors.....

    I'm so glad you are doing this. MK1 Escort more door is my least favorite of the ones we got, yet I love this car and what you have done with it. Really looking forward to how this turns out, and perfect choice with the 1600 Kent and Type 9
