      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.

  1. Hi anyone have an answer to this problem, 1980 Escort 1600, motor revs when you press the brake pedal, I know it has to do with the vacuum, but not sure what to look for, I have checked the pipes for cracks , none found.
  2. The more I strip, the more rust I find :(

  3. Workshop Manual Needed Urgently

    I have a 1980 Ford Escort with a 1600 Kent motor in it, I am busy refurbishing it. I need a workshop manual that covers this motor so I can strip it down and re assemble it to it's original state. Anyone have a link I can download this manual from. I bought one over the internet but it does not cover this model the 1600. Please help me :)
