      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. I have a Cortina Mark V (YoM : 1977) that I bought a couple of years ago. The car had had several body restoration work done previously (and I did a complete overhaul myself) so most of the undercarriage is no longer original. We have an emissions test that needs to be done annually to ensure road worthiness and it was during this test that I came across this problem. They check the documents to ensure the details has not been falsified and they were looking for the Chassis number of the car and couldn't find it engraved anywhere. In new cars this comes engraved in engine compartment so it easy to see but in the Mark V, this area is the removable cover that hides the right hand side windshield wiper connector. So this brings me to the question, where is the Chassis number originally engraved in a Cortina Mark V ? Thanks in Advance.
