Jim - thanks for that; a good start for some soundings. Not sure about the water operated choke - small added complication, but not insurmountable. :D

You will need the inlet manifold to suit the TLDM also.

Philip - This is starting to sound more complex. What's the difference from the existing one?

Stud pattern.

If you wish to replace a DFT, then the logical upgrade is the DMTR or DMTL which is a direct fit and compatible with the ordinal grey oval air filter housing by means of adaptor which is usually supplied.

Ah, I wasn’t sure if the stud pattern was the same. I probably have spare manifolds on the shelf though.

Thanks for the clarification, gents. I'd rather not go down a manifold change route, so will look at the DMTR/DMTL one and see if anything grabs me.
As noted in my earlier, I've been offered alternatives, but don't know yet what they might be, so could end up sticking to my current route. If I do, it'll be interesting to see how it all affects starting when the cold weather sets in.

I'm intrigued as to why your manual choke conversion hasn't solved it. Is it operating in place of the bimetallic cap only, or does it not replace the whole assembly with fast idle cam? I would expect the later from my experience.

No, all it did was replace the bi-metallic - which, as I said, I found out after was still working OK, but the manual conversion bit I bought had no indication that it involved the fast idle.

BTW, if I was feeling really rich or stupid or both, I could go for this (just found): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FIESTA- ... 2312408197

:shock:

Could be, Alan!
H.I. wouldn't let me buy another till this one's sold, but this is 'Kirsty', so I'm not for selling.
Will have to trust my proposed mod works!
