    Panko's Mk1 Escort (Round 2)

    With only 5L left in the tank, is it a flow issue? Pump simply not collecting enough because gravity isn't helping much? My white rover got stranded with only a few litres of fuel, starved itself around a corner and refused to run again until I'd gotten 20+ back into it to provide enough back pressure in the line/tank to get proper flow again.

    Horn relocation

    A horn can be located anywhere as long as it functions properly, is loud enough and doesn't get fouled by dirt/water causing it to fail. A lot of cars have their horns located on the front side of the radiator support hidden behind the grill or bumper. Some are under the headlight assembly and some are under the front edge of the guard but safely behind a plastic liner.

    I know where there's a van..... But I also know that you can't be bothered with gemini rust, let alone Ford rust

    Loss of power over 1500 rpm for lpg, but not unleaded

    One of my rovers wouldn't shut off the gas without using some sort of pliers on the valve and then wouldn't flow unless absolutely undone all the way again.

    Yeah I was annoyed at that with the last test I had. Half a tank went out and barely a quarter went back in. Assuming it's also the mixed gas from previous testing tanks of unknown origin.

    Possible they didn't open the valve fully. Also possible the gas that went back in wasn't clean/dry. Is that under all conditions? First start?.. hot running? Depending where I get my gas from it lacks power when cold starting until it warms up, then fine. United seems to make it do that whereas Liberty(shell) doesn't.
  8. Glad it's working again, I have nothing to add except that I misread #1 as "slapper motor" [emoji28]

    Stained paint

    Is that plain white or a metallic? If it's plain then I'm pretty sure it won't have clear coat. Solid colours are usually "direct gloss" but some may have clear for uv stability (some red for example). Either way you should be able to cut and polish no problems, should be plenty of paint thickness to work with before you get into trouble. Try it by hand on a small area that's less visible if concerned about it.

    I always wanted a "colour spark"... A transparent spark plug for visible tuning on older style engines like these. Still might get one eventually, sold mostly via the UK. There's the 1600 I was going to get for the van, I believe it's still there. Capri 1600 plus auto etc. Or you are welcome to have a closer look at my 1300 to see if it's in good shape.

    Unless I'm mistaken its a wire with a specific resistance for X length.. Where normal wire has nominal or next to nothing resistance, resistor wire has a value in the 100's of ohms range. Basically it provides the load that the ballast resistor does
