      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. 4 Speed To 5 Speed

    Hey. I'm about to swap my 4 speed for a 5 speed box. I've got my haynes manual,... got my tool box and got a bit of technical skill,....(i can read, hold a spanner and I've owned old fords,..) This is my first venture into fwd fords,.... so,...my question is (finally)... once i've installed the box, can i get away with just replacing the guide selector plate/housing and how easy would it be?..,. or do I have to replace the whole gear selector mechanism, including gear stick? Advice would be great. Thanks. Mark.
