      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  2. Ford Escort Van

    Dear Sirs, A little wisdom if you would be kind... I have recently bought a 99 T reg escort 55 van - what mark is this?? The wheels/tyres should be R13 80/185's - what are the pro's and cons of changing these for differing tyres - i.e R13 60/165's etc?? Seem's to turn over alot in the morning from cold but always eventually starts (so far) - but starts well when warm - what could this be?? Regards...
