      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. Hi Dave.. ,,,actually its a GREAT guide .. thank you for taking the time to post it .... I just signed up with the club/forum specifically to tell you that ! .. exactly enough details for a reasonably competent home mechanic to see the lie-of-the-land , and figure beforehand if its "reasonably do-able" (or not) on a wintery December afternoon on the driveway ! - certainly saved me the 90-quid the local garage wanted. I do confess to slipping the old belt back on for now ... failing light ... not immediately obvious how the tensioner unhooks for belt replacement ... and I hadnt yet located an equally informative guide to the nuances of tensioner removal ( ... a Hint , Dave ?! :-) ) Not Like the "old days" when you could see which "lumps" come out easily or not, and change a Cortina alternator in ten-minutes flat . Thanks again, Nic ( oh...and I wasn't too bothered about a bit of minor surface rust on the face of my engine pulley either )
