Hello. Only just got on here. Youve probably seen me about though.
My cars a 1962 100e with a 2.1 Pinto and 5 speed box. Heres a spec list and a few pictures....
Engine : Transit Pinto block, bored to roughly 2090cc with higher comp pistons. Big valves (not sure on the size but ive been assured theyre huge), Polished and ported head. Rally spec cam. 38dgas carb (from a 3.0 capri). 4-2-1 manifold. I did have a side exit exhaust with no silencers but it failed on MOT for flames so i had a friend build up a custom system with a resonator on the middle and a small middle box for a back box. Omex Rev limiter with a flashy red light too
Transmission : 5-speed Capri/Sierra gearbox pulled from a rally mk2 escort. Unknown ratios, but the gap between 1st and 2nd has been filled so its always in powerband. RS2000 3.54 diff in a standard mk1 Cortina axle case and shafts.
Suspension : Front is adjustable coilovers conversion, rear is cortina multileaf springs and adjustable Spax shockies.
Brakes : Capri 2.8 calipers and vented discs up front, Cortina GT 8" drums out back.
Wheels : Im unsure what to use at the moment, but on it is a pair of 13x5" escort steels and a pair of 13x5.5" Alleycats. Ive got some comsics to paint up and im after a set of 5.5" escort steels to paint black.
Interior : Ally doorcards and dash panels etc. Loads of dials and gauges, most of which dont work. The original speedo which stops at 80 but is a novelty in its own right. MG Metro seats on adjustable rails. Odd harnesses. Pretty stripped out apart from all the rubbish that collects in it.
Ive had nothing but trouble from it. Pulled a ballstud out of the head, blown up 2 diffs, snapped two alt brackets, broken coils etc etc but its worth it.
