  1. The government plans to change the law on car modification to make it difficult to do certain things without being penalised. There is a consultation opened which closed on 22 November 2021 at 11:45pm,this has not been publicised for obvious reasons and in some ways can impact tuning packages that change the emissions of the car. Read about it at https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/future-of-transport-regulatory-review-modernising-vehicle-standards To fill in the consultation, the direct link is at https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/ETVHG5/ Motorsport fears over car modification rule changes Plans to tighten rules on modifying cars are "ringing alarm bells", motorsport enthusiasts have warned. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-59210036 KEEPING TRACK Are car modification rules changing?

  3. Use a host such as tinypic, or via attached my media button
  4. Try the crankshaft position sensor
  5. a blessed merry Christmas to everyone.
  6. Only adjustment is the allen key on the peddle or it would be a new clutch kit if it doesn't cure it.
  7. Doesn't make sense what you are trying to do. Are you trying to remove the engine from the car, but leaving the gearbox in place. If so, then to separate the two, needs all bolts between the two removed. Once that is done, you may need to use a screwdriver or crow bar to lever the two apart. The engine would have to either be held supported on stands or via the crane. Then the gearbox pulled away from the engine. I always think the best way of doing it is to remove the gearbox first, then remove the engine. It is worth noting you should remove the engine mount of the offside off from the engine if you plan to lift the engine from the bay rather than underneath the car.
  8. An allen key bolt in the top of the pedal. Think its either a 6mm or 8mm, cant remember of my head.
  9. Escort RS2000/GTi bodykit. Check ebay.
  10. If it is the MTX75 gearbox then no it doesn't. It has a roll pin, which could be moved up or down.
  11. If you do get a replacement, the last 3 characters Must match BAA
  12. Interesting at 6:01 was the Escort XR3i 2000
  13. I got fedup with the feel of the mk5 clutch pedal. It is bad enough driving a car without a hydraulic clutch. Sometimes, the nature of the mk5 auto adjusting ratchet system can make pushing the clutch pedal hard at times, especially after repeated use or engine has warmed up. I bought the clutch pedal from Burton Power who have them in stock, it is genuine Ford mk6 item. Part number 1029012 costs £32 If you can remove the whole pedal box it would be easier, I couldn't be bothered so did it via just unbolting the steering rack clamp (10mm bolt) and dashboard lower cover and taking the footwell lamp bulb to use as a torch. I did not remove the seat as some may do, I just lined up old sofa cushions and lay them outside the car with the door wide open. I did experiment once the new pedal was on with different arrangements using the original clutch cable and a shorter one. Also used the black original mk5 quadrant and the newer improved angle white quadrant. Although with every other method, it ended up with the clutch pedal sitting to high. I had to cut 10 teeth of the ratchet to get a decent pedal position. Also don't forget to remember the setup of where the yellow plastic spring washers go right of the clutch pedal and left of the brake pedal, onto the pivot shaft. Only part I am missing is the spring part number 7333648 which retails from Ford for £7.58 ex VAT I am not too sure where it attaches on the pedal system for the mk6. I guess it stops the pedal from being lifted upwards. As this is the only thing different now that I have upgraded to mk6.

  14. Did anyone know if this had fit ok on the MTX75 gearbox subframe without any problems.
  15. You could swap the odometer over if you want. The digital one looks better though. The MTX75 gearbox is notorious for the syncromesh going. Happened to one of mine that after I could not gain 1st and 2nd; even when I took the box apart. I ended up fitting another one I had spare. Luckily before that as the RS2000 has a higher torque figure, I could pull off from 3rd gear from rest.
  16. As above you would need one for a Orion 90-95. The earlier RS one looks nice, like in my signature. It was the RS Accessories one I had get.
  17. This is for the ABS system on the mk5 Ford Escort RS2000, Si, XR3i with rear disc brake axle. Looking at the Grahams Granada Page. The fault codes for the ABS on the mk5 Escort RS2000 are below. Remember to test it, connect the code reader to the connector by the ABS pump with the ignition off. Once connected, switch the fault code reader to ON, then after turn the ignition ON. It would then start flashing the codes. CODE = UNIT (Type/Position) = FAULT 00 = ECU/- = Supply voltage or ECU 10 = -/- = Invalid code 11 = -/- = Electrical interference 17 = System Relay/- = Voltage supply or wiring 21 = Main Valve/- = Valve, wiring or connections 22 = Solenoid valve/LH Front inlet = Valve, wiring or connections 23 = Solenoid valve/LH Front outlet= Valve, wiring or connections 24 = Solenoid valve/RH Front inlet= Valve, wiring or connections 25 = Solenoid valve/RH Front outlet= Valve, wiring or connections 26 = Solenoid valve/Rear inlet = Valve, wiring or connections 27 = Solenoid valve/Rear outlet = Valve, wiring or connections 31 = Speed sensor/LH Front = Sensor circuit 32 = Speed sensor/RH Front = Sensor circuit 35 = Speed sensor/LH Front = Sensor signal 36 = Speed sensor/RH Front = Sensor signal 41 = Speed sensor/LH Front = Sensor signal 42 = Speed sensor/RH Front = Sensor signal 55 = Speed sensor/LH Front = Sensor signal long term 56 = Speed sensor/RH Front = Sensor signal long term 61 = Reservoir and pressure switch = Switches, pump motor, relay or wiring 62 = Pedal travel sensor = Sensor resistance or wiring 63 = Motor/- = Motor, voltage supply, relay or wiring 64 = Hydraulic Modulator = Motor, voltage supply, relay or wiring 65 = G force sensor/- = Sensor or wiring (4x4 only) 75 = Speed sensor/LH Front = Sensor circuit intermittent fault 76 = Speed sensor/RH Front = Sensor circuit intermittent fault 79 = Vehicle spin recognised = - ABS Hydraulic Modulator Solenoid Valve Testing To test the wheel sensors, with the ignition off, disconnect the ABS module plug. To test the inlet/outlet solenoids as indicated by the extracted fault code(s) measure the resistance(s) between ABS Module Connector pin 3, and the relevant pins as listed at Table 2. Compare the measured values with the expected values at Table 2. Table 2 Solenoid = Pins = Expected reading (ohms) LH Front Inlet = 20 & 3 = 5.4 to 8.2ohms LH Front Outlet = 22 & 3 = 3.0 to 4.5ohms RH Front Inlet = 38 & 3 = 5.4 to 8.2ohms RH Front Outlet = 21 & 3 = 3.0 to 4.5ohms Rear Inlet = 54 & 3 = 5.4 to 8.2ohms RH Front Outlet = 36 & 3 = 3.0 to 4.5ohms http://i63.tinypic.com/2wm2640.jpg If any test fails, repeat the test at the sensor connector to determine if it is the sensor or the vehicle wiring at fault. ABS Wheel Sensor Testing To test the wheel sensors, with the ignition off, disconnect the ABS module plug. With reference to the ABS connector drawing, and the ABS module pin numbers given at Table 1, test the sensor(s) indicated by the extracted fault code(s) as follows; Test for continuity. Expected value 900-1400 ohms. Test for signal by raising the affected wheel, spin the wheel at approximately one revolution per second. Expected value greater than 0.2 volts AC. Table 1 Wheel = Pins LH Front = 30 & 48 RH Front = 29 & 47 http://i64.tinypic.com/2qisojl.jpg If any test fails, repeat the test at the sensor connector to determine if it is the sensor or the vehicle wiring at fault.
  18. Haynes manual has it at the back of it.
