      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. Ford Escort Rear Brake Drums Removal

    First thing is to loosen the drum where it has become stuck to the hub. On the outward facing edge or periphery , the drum is reinforced. A few smart taps with a hammer should lossen this bond. The next thing is that once the drum starts to move, it may become jammed on the brake shoes. All you can do here is to try and ease it past the shoes, it often helps to try and rotate it at the same time, but the shoe steady pins might become detached as well. Before replacing the drum it is often advised to carefully remove the wear ridge on the outer lip of the drum. This is normally done by the careful use of an angle grinder or you could do it by hand with a coarse file. Greetings from the North Pennines and Hadrian's Wall.
  2. Does anybody know how to obtain a copy of the Ford Technical information system after2005? Apparantly it is on the internet, but I suspect that is Ford's own netwprk. Any help would be much appreciated. Many thanks
