Facebook

I've been off Facebook for a while, after a dispute with them over my deceased brother's account. Although I hate facebook, it's one of the only means to keep up with car shows and like minded people.

I've been trying to back on the MCA group, but no one seems to be approving the request?

Oil leak

Drove to the inspection station, opened the hood and there was oil everywhere. It's on the right side of the engine, dripping down off the hood at the back. I've changed the oil seal on the breather and the rocker box cover, but I still think it's coming out of the breather under pressure. I drove h...

Re: steering rubber thingy

Fixed the picture, but now I know it's called a rag joint, I can google it.

Re: steering rubber thingy

Is that what it's known as? I'm running a manual rack, so I have the shorter link.

steering rubber thingy

After nearly thirty years, when should we be replacing the steering vibration thingy on the lower steering column?

And what options are there to replace it?

Re: Won't Start

I got all the fuel out in the end and I double checked the belt alignment and everything looks to be lined up okay. I put in the new fuel and she started on the first turn. :D The only problem I'm having now is a lot of cam noise (knocking), so I'm hoping I'm not one tooth off, and it's just the dis...

Re: Won't Start

Thank you for your help.

I can't see that photobucket photo, due to 3rd party hosting, or something?

Won't Start

I've been slowly replacing items on the engine as when I bought the car it had been sat for 5 years, but the engine ran. I've replaced the cambelt, the rotor arm, distributor cap, the leads and the plugs. I went to start it for the first time this weekend and it acts like the battery is going flat e...

Re: Alternator

Been searching the net and found a boat built by omc cobra, using a 2.3 lima engine. The alternator bracket is very similar to the Pinto but only has a 2" ear, so the standard alternator won't fit. http://www.2040-parts.com/_content/items/images/16/52916/001.jpg Anyone know of an alternator that wou...

and is this too much pitting for a (ranger) gasket to seal?
