  4. Work In Progress, Escort Saloon

    Here are a few pics of my 96 escort serenade. It's only done 68,000 miles and wanted to do a few little mods but keep the originality intact. Think I've carried it off. So far fitted a mk5 orion rear bumper then refurbed some mk6 escort van wheels and installed a rev counter.
  5. Escort 1998 Finesse For Sale

    I'm selling my Escort Finesse 1998, in silver. Only two previous owners, myself and my mum. It's done under 50,000 miles. The clutch is slightly wearing and may need a new battery we're testing at the moment, but everything else is in great condition. Also comes with working AC and CD player. Looking to sell for around £150, that's what the garage will give us to scrap it, but that seems as shame as it's in such good condition. If anyone is interested please let me know as soon as possible as the garage are planning on towing it away next week. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks
  6. I saw this video as a recommendation on YouTube, thought you lot might like it. It's an American Carshow for Ford's, but there are some old UK Ford in there too, along with the new Mustang & Focus RS :D PS Yeh I know that Focus RS is in a hideous colour, I didn't particularly like that flat blue they are parading either, What are Ford trying to do to the RS?, they keep splashing it with rubbish colours!!

  8. Just thought I would post my findings on a 1600 Sport I got. So I thought to begin with any mk2 would do, then decided I would not be as happy with a 4 door as a 2 door, then decided it would have to be the 1600 Sport, so after much searching worldwide thinking of Importing one, in the course of all this I had completely fried my wifes brain. I found it purely by chance just at the moment I was giving up on a Sport, and only an 800 mile round trip away, I rang a chap near Edinburgh that had a 2 door and a 4 door on eBay, both were out of my price range as they were mint, but I wanted a project, so he said he had a couple of project cars So it started with a 2am alarm call from a very ill wife, loaded up 2 children and a wife that had a sickness bug at 2.45am, arrived on the Scottish border at around 9am with a rather bad feeling in my jacksie, oh dear I just developed the bug that my wife was just getting over SERVICES QUICK! After some much needed relief and another couple of stops finally get to have a look at the cars on offer, arrival around 11am then to be told that one of the cars had gone, but there was another I could look at, the wife was drawn to this barbie pink 2 door, turned out to be a sport, had a look round seems like a good base with no major issues, ended up getting it cheap as he didn't like the colour or some nasty looking body kit that had been put on it. Next a trip to Glasgow to drop off some wool my wife had sold, debated staying at a hotel, thought it a bad idea with the "Pink Panther" on an unlocked open trailer, last thing I wanted was it nicked the day I bought it, so off home it is then, lots of Coffee and 796 Miles later arrive home at around 12.30 that night just slightly tired but I got a 2 door Sport well worth it, I will be adding pics as I go along athough I have already stripped the interior before taking any pics, but the rest will have to do
  9. Starting Problems

    So now and again very rare I will go up to my escort mk6 1.8 ghia. And turn the key. There are lights on the dash and u get all power. However u don't hear the fuel pump cut in. Then you turn the key and there is no starter motor kicking in. U only hear a small click. Then more often not very. You are driving along and it just dies. Try turning it back on same happens as I I said up above no fuel pump no starter. Help Also inside the engine by the firewall the only way I can describe it is as a piston. It's a cylinder shape and a metal rod that gets pushed inside when the key is turned on to the ignition. However when the problem happens and you turn the key u get dash lights but that pistion dosnt push in. What is this piston

  16. 1998 Escort

    Hello good people of FOC, This is my first post on your forums since I have just inherited my Granddad's 1998 Escort, I'm hoping that you guys will be able to assist me over the next year or two that I plan on owning this car :) I saved the poor car from meeting the scrap heap as my granddad managed to blow the head gasket and took it upon myself to fix it. After a few weekends of work I managed to get it all fixed and running again, but there is still a problem. The radiator fan isn't kicking in when the temp picks up, which is probably the cause of the blown gasket. I have found that the fan is still functional by shorting the wires to the fan switch and therefore blame the fan switch itself. Now, the switch looks new.. which means that it may not be a Ford part and therefore may not be rated to the correct temperature as the original switch. The switch is rated at 100-95°C for low fan speed and 110-105°C for high. I want to know what temperatures the switch is meant to operate on an original part. If there are any MK VII owners out there can you please help me out by checking yours? Should I buy a lower temp rating to help prevent overheating? Thanks in advance

  19. Ford Escort Mk2 Restoration

    I am wanting to start a restoration project on an Mk2 Escort, bearing in mind I have little to no knowledge of how to restore a car but I have a family member who has been a mechanic practically all his life (I don't know how much help I will get off him other than advice as he is busy, I will be doing most of the work myself), I may be able to get some help from friends, how difficult would this be considering I am willing to take my time on the project to learn not just to build the car? And how expensive would you say it would be from past experiences? I'm also thinking of spraying it Ermine White, I know its not an orginal colour but 2 of my mates have both got Ermine White Mk1's and I think it would look pretty sick having those 3 cars together at a car show etc? What is your opinion? Thanks
  20. Returning Ford Owner

    Hello All, After a gap of nearly 20 years, I collect my 56 plate 2.0 Ghia Focus on Saturday. It's in pretty good shape, FSH @ 69,000 miles. Back in the late 80's and up to about '98 I had a MK2 Escort. It started out as a 1.3, but I soon put a MK1 Mexico 1.6 engine in there, lowered 2 inches, 4 spoke revolutions. It was awesome but eventually I reached the point where it was going to cost too much to get rid of the rust. The Focus already has the Sony radio, but I'm thinking about a switch out for something with Bluetooth. Any recommendations? David
