    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    A 120Y would never have kept up with you. A MK1 Escort out handles and out brakes a 120Y stock for stock. Your modified suspension may have contributed to you running out of brakes as your corner speeds would have been quicker.

    A 120Y will do something similar, however the handling and braking are not in the same league.

    Even 120Y's can cruise at 110

    LPG horsepower gaining mods

    Yes, I may not have made it clear, but my comments were all towards forced induction of on sort or another.

    LPG horsepower gaining mods

    I am not sure on this, so others in the know may shoot me down. That said, I have a little LPG knowledge. I have experience with gas, but not in a forced induction situation. ( Impco systems mostly) My thoughts would be to convert from the complex converter/simple mixer system fitted factory, and change to a simple converter/complex mixer system. A B2 converter and Gasresearch mixer is a known quantity with blow through LPG systems. It can be made work very well. Other people have had great results with Impco mixer and converter systems with forced induction. I have not done either, but I know a lot of people have with great results.

    Zetec is the same bellhousing bolt pattern as the Kent. 2.0 blacktop with a C3, cheap as That said, if performance isn't an issue, 1600 Kent with the C3, no hassles

    Power steering belt replacement

    Check the condition of the belts also. Look for cracks on the inside in particular. A broken belt can really wreck your day.

    Power steering belt replacement

    I think it would be more likely to be the alternator belt, rather than the steer belt. The steer belt is under very little load unless you are turning, whereas the alternator starts charging at a high level immediately on start to recover the charge lost while cranking, then reduces charge rate. That said, it would pay to check all belts. What is the car, what engine?
