Thanks dave, looks very simple under the bonnet compared to nowadays ,,,,my local garage chap wants to have a look, might let him change the plugs if his hands are clean , probably the 1st time in years he hasn't skinned his knuckles.

just a quick Q , is it the mk2 model i have ? Attached File  $(KGrHqFHJCME9uF!,Lq6BPjtPwYE,g~~_12.jpg   56.61KB   74 downloads

Driving it is like sitting on a old comfy sofa, soooooooo comfortable :)

the car looks mint considering i was 3 years old when it was built lol
a front strut brace would make it feel alot better on corners and reduice body roll as well as under steer,
even at 20-30mph steering will feel alot more direct,

Cheers for the link lenny, i'll keep that in mind.......does it fit all sierras then ?

Its in pretty decent nick , having had a couple of owners and almost a full service history, hardly a spot of rust anywhere , thats why it had to be mine.

Not much in the way of electrics to go wrong because there isn't any lol.. Not even power steering, so im building my arms up a bit.....no central locking, its got a old ford stereo with no cassette, so i cannot even put my duran duran tape in :ph34r: just Fm,mw,lw for listening pleasure...

Basic is the word :)

I think the cars had more tyres on it than anything else due to them perishing !

Sure does look clean. Hope you enjoy it. I had several.

2.0 Ghia on a C plate, 2.8 4x4 Ghia Estate on a D plate and a 2.0 Sapphire Ghia on a G plate.

Really comfy to drive apart from the heavy clutch and soft suspention. The 4x4 shocks were OK but the first 2.0 I had to uprate them.

Yep, the suspension is soft and the clutch has quite a long travel but its not to hard on the legs,,,,,,

didn't take me long to get back into driving the old girl,
