    Calliper is Sierra, Scorpio (Granada in the UK) and Escort Cosworth. The bigger engines with diskbrakes on the rear. Its a very common upgrade calliper on classic Fords with a reardrum to disk swap as this calliper has a mechanical handbrake so lots of parts available.

    Easy, most Ford 60s cars, pickup trucks and vans came with a Winsor or an FE. 360ci, 390ci, 427ci, 428ci. Ford pickups had them till '76 (360 & 390).

    Ultrasonic cleaning

    I used to work with the same 6 liter unit for years and after 4 years off frequent abuse its killed itself as most ultrasonic devices will. Did a lot of carbs with it. I now have the 10 liter unit which holds about 9 litres. For carbs, Tickopur R33 is the best agent to clean carbs. Use it in...

    Front suspension lift

    I dont think an air tank is needed, I am running an airlift 5000 airbag system on my F250 with just a Viair 440 pump and it raises quick enough, even with the camper in the back. You don't need 8 Bar air pressure total to lift a GT40. Single pump will reach 2 to 3 Bar very quick which will be...

    Anyone ever used Stack Injection ITB setup?

    MS25010A what bulb

    I know what it is. A panel iluminator designed to edge light a GT40 switch panel.. But as Ford also used the Boeing 28Volt wiper motor in the mk2 I am wondering if they did the same with these Boeing panel lights. If I hook them up with 28Volt bulbs they just glow.
