Re: Sapphire/Sierra V8

Nice car but conversions usually go for a bit less than that,especially with the licensing issue.

Re: 1967 Camaro SS/RS

Re: Cosworth Sierra / Sapphire RS

Re: Ford sierra 302 con version

If you bolt the flexplate onto the engine and then fit the torque converter on its own do you get any clearance between the t/c threads and the flex plate?

Re: Ford T5 Gearbox

There are various differences on T5's, spline counts and size, etc, so just make sure of the spec you want. Quite right. if you are looking to use it on a v6 then you probably want the fine spline version that came on some couriers. I have a broken but complete one for R 2500 if you are prepared to...
