    My spare engine .1.6 cvh 1986 was reconditioned around ten years ago and running in my mates kit car when he bought it he then put a redtop in so i bought it as a backup just in case .. It has a new cam belt and inside the rocker cover looks clean amd tidy..i domt think it had done any miles sonce the recon as the owner of tbe kit car ran out of time and cash and my buddy bougjt it and finished the project.. I turn engine once a month it has clean oil and good compression... As im sadlt selling my cabbie im hoping this can go to a good home ...cheets Springy (paul springthorpe) 07905 036316 please ask any questions ...

  11. Hello , I'm missing the weatherstrip under the bonnet finis code 6132237 but can't find a supplier any one help with ford parts suppliers... Also was there a felt insulation panel under the bonnet of a mk3 ? Cheers in advance !
  12. HI buddy my mate at work has a mk4 the same colour its lovely...bit more plush than my mk3 1984 1.6 , 😊looks like your going to have plenty of fun , I've had loads of help and information from here when sorting mine out .👍
  13. You could get a multimeter on the connector to the rear screen elect to see if power is getting that far. Assuming it's getting past the switch...and look for a break in the screen heater element itself ...on my mk3 the element is stuck on over the glass not sure if it's laminated in on later ones....
  14. Yep mine too ..was intermittent got new one and couldn't believe how quick it turned...you get used to a lazy starter as it gradually gets worse..
