I may be out of turn to say this, but it does surprise me that people complain at the price of genuine brake parts for our cars.
I agree

On the drivers side ,I had water coming in through the aerial. This was the result to the sill strengthener . I made a new one in 16 swg stainl...

That piece fits over the tunnel and folds under the rear seat squab.
I did wonder if they fitted there but I didnt have any carpet under the seats when I removed them.
On another note. I need some decent fuel pipe have you got it in stock?

Ians GTC rebuild. Now she runs.

After a bit of tweeking with the timing the rebuilt engine fired up for time at the week-end. Running a bit lumpy ,valve clearances in need of re-adjustment and the timing wants setting up properly, but thats another task ticked off the list. I now get to use my new shiney timing light. As these job...

Timing

I use Castrol Valvemaster Plus which has an octane booster that boosts the unleaded 95 to the 97 that our engines were designed for so no need to re-set timing..ie no need to retard to prevent pinking. I buy it by the 12 box load.....that way one bottle comes free. It is now called CLASSIC Valvmast...

Timing

I am trying to set up my timing . I looked in the haynes manual for a mk2 Granada and it says 9 deg BTC, but someone told me that is wrong and it should be 12deg BTC.
Could somebody enlighten me please, which is the correct setting?

Ians GTC rebuild. Light at the end of the tunnel

Looks really great Ian - well done. Look forward to seeing it on the road, suspect next week's Norfolk Noggin (at Stradsett in the west of Norfolk in lieu of our default location) may be pushing you a bit too hard!! Like you I was after a replacement header tank, and I followed Andy (AJL) thread an...

Ians GTC rebuild. Light at the end of the tunnel

Thanks Mikey. The only thing letting it down is the header tank. We have tried everything to get it clean, but it is badly stained. Will just have to live with it and hope I can find one in better condition You'll be lucky! I think that they are Mk1 Transit. If you are not too concerned with origin...
