      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.

    JBA Falcon kit car (Cortina Mk4 based)
  1. Cortina Mk4/5 rear lower trailing arm front bushes

    Thanks so much for this info - I'll be contacting them to get hold of some and can then get my Falcon(we call her "Molly") back on the road!
  2. I have a JBA Falcon tourer kit car, which is based on Mk4/5 Cortina running gear. It failed its MOT yesterday, needing new rear lower trailing arm front bushes :( I used to have a Mk3 Cortina in the past and recall that needing the same thing once. Trying to get hold of these bushes is proving somewhat difficult - the garage doing the MOT hasn't been able to locate any. The local Ford dealer was unable to help as their computer parts system doesn't list them anymore. I went to Chambers of Sutton, in Sutton Coldfield and was fortunate to speak to an older parts man - my experience tells me that they're often worth their weight in gold, as it never fails to amaze me at what they can manage to find at times! He too bemoaned them taking away his beloved microfiche index, but after a short while, came back to me with a part number: 6028454 He'd also located one set - at Bristol Street Birmingham and they're on their way to me. I now need just one more set. Short of ringing around loads of Ford parts departments, does anyone have any suggestions for a supplier of these ? Many thanks for any help.
