      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. Timing belt snapped

    Hi, my timing belt snapped on me, was doing 70mph on M5, no noise what so ever just died. Would this have bent the valves or not. New timing belt being fitted, cams and crankshaft all set up correctly, but engine won't fire up. Would a compression test confirm this, whats the easiest and cheapest solution to sort it out. Cheers Lee
