  1. New drive shaft seals......I'm too busy with work, so I'm brothers work are fitting then when it goes for MOT next week. :)
  2. Thanks Dan, yeah I'm well happy with it now. Does need some body work doing but still a lot more solid than some newer cars on the road. :)
  3. Took the Escort for a test drive this morning, what a difference......really quiet, smooth, and a little flyer now!!! Soo happy!!! :D Few pics after lol. :D
  4. One of the reasons I went back to older cars......Contitech cambelt & drive belt cost £12 for both, on the Escort. And done them myself. MG on the other hand cost £700 for timing belts (there's 3!), water pump, pulleys etc.....but that was fitted, all genuine MG Rover parts. :)
  5. New camshaft and followers fitted, well happy......so much better. :D Old followers, most are bevelled at the edges and one is badly dished. Camshaft is knackered, one lobe has worn right down! Video, this is from initial warm up. Sound was amplified by the garage. Sounds really good in person. :)
  6. Engine flushed. Sump plug, and new filter fitted. All ancillaries except cam cover removed, ready to fit new cam, followers, and valve stem seals. :D
  7. Rear speakers fitted. :D Did make a little mistake though lol :D Sorted now though, so set it up playing Faithless - insomnia.......hope my neighbours enjoyed some old school tunes lol :D
  8. Valve stem seals, and cam seals arrived today.....haven't mounted speakers yet, as didn't have time to get machine screws today. :)
  9. Images not Displaying

    It's the official app that stopped working, I've deleted it as was pointless having it......mostly just use mobile site now. Which isn't the best.
  10. Speaker adapters finally arrived today. :D One had a broken corner, so had to make a new piece and bond it in place. Will leave it to set before mounting the speakers. Also needed 5" speakers not 4" so exchanged them for these. Need to get some m4 screws tomorrow to mount the adapters to the parcel shelf supports. :)
