  10. Hi Guys In the process of replacing my ripped roof through my insurance company here in New Zealand, to make things easy for them i am trying to find a supplier who is recommended and happy with the product by you guys to ship to NZ from the UK, my cabby is an 1986 mk4 xr3i, Cheers Derek
  11. Mk4 xr3i...Can anyone please advise if both rams should be mounted on the body at the same height? Offside has had a repair at some point but mounting point has been welded on approx 1 inch lower than nearside and offside ram left disconnected. Will not work fully if both rams connected. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks

  22. By the way an agreed value for my car which has only covered 30K from new, FSH, all recipts, new roof, and as virtually new, garaged and only cover 700 miles a year was valued with Footman James for £12, 500 last year, Lancaster valued it at £10K, while it is an appreciating in value. A new roof I got quotes from £1400, to £700. in vinyl. They do not do Mohair in white and Mohair is the way to go. All the rubbers I have had as I bought nearly everything new from Ford as spares, Engine, gearbox, all the parts, interior trim. IMy dashboard has no cracke, as it has sat in the garage mainly. The other thing to watch out is for the fule pump bracket and the inner wing to from slam panle rust, which thankfully my car has not got. So that might give you an indication or way to go price. But go with a Insurance company of repute and from my experience that is not Lancaster! I picked up a second one of these cars two years ago for £2500, but I had a lot of body work to do. All the rubbers had perished. but the underneath was solid, no rust at all, but new roof needed, and an interior which thankfully I had a new second hand one. That I am building to concourse standard. Valued with aggreed value with Hiscox at £12500. Unforunately the guy before me fitted a power roof which was an after fit.

    Clutch.

    What make is the clutch and was it genuine Ford parts cable, and ratchet/ pawl assembly you used? Check the fork arm at the gear box housing, I just replaced my cluthc with a LUK, and original Ford cable, and ratchet and Pawl, but found it was an internal gearbox issue. Luckily I swapped the gearbox (as I had a NOS gearbox and all is fine now! But oringinally I used Q&H and it was so poor. I lost out on the labour Q&H after a year refunded me with the money but it had done damage to the gearbox.
  24. What ever you do dont go with Lancaster Classic Car Insurance, I am in dispute with thier Agreed value. I sent in tons of photos, and even removed my side skirts, to show there is no rust in the wheel arches. They still did dnot honour what I wanted. Due to thier tardy reponse they said for 6 weeks insurance they would refund me £18 when I had paid £160 for the whole year. Got me over a barrel. I would strongly urge anyone to stay clear of this dispicable company read thier Google reviews. Go with another compny. I will never use this shoddy outfit again! It is going to cost me £180 in just the pop rivets plus labour to put the body kit back on my All White I SE. 1985. I will stick to Footman James in future. There is no messing about with them. I know nealry all the classic car events ae sponsored by Lancaster so the Administartors may not like this. But read the Google reviews of Lancaster Insurance. I hope the administrators dont remove this post as it meant to be the passionate owners and like minded individuals who do not hide behine PLCs and legaleas or legal fiction and those who corporations who have limited public liability and Indusrance and Bankers behind them!
