Wheels in motion. Just spinning slowly. :( Grinding is perhaps a better term?

I managed to get www.cortina-mk1.com up and running, but still working on the forum. Didn't expect it to be quite this difficult...

You have PM Capt.

Cologne V6 has the distributor at the rear on the engine. Essex V6 at the front. I've heard of these motors but not seen one before. Looks heaps better in my opinion with the six pack Webers on there,,,

Essex V6. However FordSA at some point released a 3.4 version of it (south africa only)....so mine uses the 3.0 block but with the 3.4 crank/rods and pistons. The 3.4 made huge amounts more torque (longer stroke slightly larger bore....however the pistons are slipper types...very thin....nothing like the huge essex pistons)
Was inferior design in the heads though IMO ...therefore still using the 3.0 heads

The 6pack webers were also a local 'special edition" back in 1982....was a homologation special for ford local racing at the time. Called the XR6 interceptor and only 250 built.

Howzat. Looking good ekse. When I saw this,man how I missed my 3.0S and Sierra XR6. Truly well built machines. I wouldn't mind importing one here to Aus. Even the 3.0irs would do.

Does anyone know if a gearbox that was fitted to a 2ltr Pinto engine will fit a 2ltr Ford Engine for my TC Cortina

My 1975 TD Cortina. 200ci, manual.
We found it with 28 000km's on the clock and on its original crossply tyres. All of the paint smears, paper parts tags and dealer stickers are still there.
Brakes, tyres and exhaust have been replaced and its been thoroughly detailed. Used sparingly on high days and dry days, shes up to 34 000km's now.
