madmax2 replied to stuart1981's topic in Ford Sierra ClubHi here in ireland for a good sierra with its paper work any were between 500 and 1200 euro but automatic ones are definatly not in demand if you want descent money for it you best fitting a manual box to it! If you are converting it to a 24v its more fun to fit a manual to the car (type 9 5 speed or mt 75) and isnt a difficult converstion to carry out other than the gearbox you need the pedals and clutch cable most people use the mt 75 over the type 9 as its a stronger box but to use this you need a 2wd box and the bell housing of a 4wd XR4x4 box and the flywheel/clutch from an xr4x4 v6 model. the wiring is were it gets tricky best to ask a profesional about that. regarding the cosworth front hubs and discs id say the would fit but i never carried out conversion.
Ive had this car since last april its a 1.6 sapphire classic and is a low spec model with 1.6 pinto an automatic weber choke. I have removed and sold the engine and gearbox and i have fitted a 2.0i dohc from a 91 glsi its still not running jue to wireing issues and now im thinking of fitting a 24v cossi we will have to see!
I have this since september and bought for 300 yoyos with a full service history! its my every day driver and is one of only a hand full of orignal irish saloon models left in ireland. i havent done any work on it yet bar a service but i will be compounding the paint work fitting cosworth 16 alloys or merc AMG ones but the biggest change will be converting it to 2.0 16v rs 2000 spec.
