In Topic: Cortina P100 pick up

09 December 2008 - 12:45 AM

Due to a family bereavment, we have a Ford P100 that will need to be turned into viat s to pay toward funeral costs.

Its the Cortina bodied version

At this moment, its currently MOT'd and on the road, I have not seen the vehicle yet so dont know what engine it has in it, or its overall condition, or even what colour it is.

I am after a place - forum / owners club etc where I can gather interest in the vehicle, to see what its worth and if anyone is interested in buying it.

So am only after being pointed in the right direction at the moment.

Reply, or email me on nikeastwood161ATyahoo.co.uk changing the "AT" to "@"

Thanks for looking.

In Topic: Play in Steering Rod

Ok i have completed the replacement and it is not to bad to do

I had to change the offside tie rod . part number is 4048739 price 39.26 inc vat

I removed the complete offside lower suspension arm and support bracket in one piece .

remove steering track rod end from hub.

Remove rack gaiter clips to get at inner end of rack .

Then using a self grip plumbers wrench undid the tie rod .

This was quite hard to release : I therefore poured a kettle of boiling water over the rack end and left for 5 mins to expand a little . That did the trick and the rest was easy

hope this helps anyone else

I have same problem on my KA

ford have quoted 45.00 for the tie rod kit .

Did you repair yours with the rack still on the car or did you remove it first

If rack has to come off how easy to do

( I haven,t worked on the KA yet as it is new to me )
