Hi Guys, small update.
Exhaust fitted for now.

A bit quiet but good for listening if there are any funny noises etc.

Knock link testing. Will soon be fitted for fine tuning

Changed plugs and one of the COP insulators was stuck so only the coil came out. Had to break out insulator as it was corroded solid inside the plug hole. Ford does not sell them loose. Only complete coil.

Bought a coil pack and plug leads after i installed the new plugs. Started and all is good.

Fitting COP's again shortly

Will try and posted some more updates shortly.

Don't you think doing just the front for now might alter you brake bias which I think would be critical especially on the track?

In terms of sharing the info is a pleasure and I'm sure it will help a lot of guys on this forum.
Feel free to ask any further info if needed.

My car won't be done by then as I'm quite busy at work now so no time for it but will definitely try and come have a look at the racing.

Cheers


Hi Mad Sapphire

Can you please tell me if these brakes are from a specific ST or not ? Love the car and love your passion. You just gave me new hopes for my Sierra project. I will be running 17" mags and the current drum system at the rear looks ugly and I already purchased the complete rear suspension, diff, brake setup that came from a Sapphire 3.0 Ghia, but the calipers are knackered and they are too small imo too. Love Calipers and Discs that fill the rim nicely.

Hope you will help me to get the correct brake setup for my car.

Thanks for reading
Regards
Albie

P.S.....Ek is eintlik afrikaans, so jammer as daar baie spelfoute is :?

Hi All,
It's been a while. Project took a very far backseat due to other commitments. Basically put it in storage. Not much to update on right now.

MAD SAPPHIRE

i am interested in fitting a Territory ST motor to my Ranchero bakkie (Falcon XH).

Where did you find the engine?
How much did you pay?

All the ones i have found are +-R25,000 on exchange

Thanks
Julien
