      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, can someone please tell me the correct spanner to use on the cylinder head star type bolts. I've got what I thought was a full set of this type of spanner but none seem to fit quite right. Any help will be sincerely appreciated' Thanks Ted
  2. Escort 55 Van Starting Problem

    Hi Hth, Thanks for reply, I'll strip fuel filter down and have a look. From what you've said it sounds as though the diaphragm is damaged. Thanks again Ted
  3. Hi, I have a 2001 Escort 55 van 1.8d (non turbo), with an endura engine. After recent starting problems, I fitted new glow plugs - no better. I thought it may be a fuel problem , so I pulled off the pipe from the fuel filter and tried pressing the primer a few times. Very little fuel came out, so I took off the fuel filter to see if that looked blocked. It seemed ok so I put it all back together again and now it wont fire up at all. I suspect this may be something to do with the fact the fuel filter was empty when I refitted it. Any help will be sincerely appreciated. Thanks in advance
