1979 Ford Escort Ghia Repairs

Jon is preparing the Escort for next week’s competition draw. He has stripped and removed the carburettors. Stripped and checked that the jet sizes correspond with the 2000cc engine in 32/36 carb setting. The jet sizes are all ok.

He has cleaned and blown out the carb and rebuilt before refitting to the car.

We have replaced split the vacuum hose to the distributor and check the distributor cap and rotor arm.

The rotor is showing signs of a burnt tip and the cap is poor inside with a hole in it. We have checked the spark plugs too.

A new new cap is on order along with a new rotor and plugs.

Jon has cleaned and refitted the air filter assembly and check front seat bolts.

The rear bolts have been removed from the drivers seat and we have drilled out the broken bolt in outer fixing. Fill in floor holes with instant gasket. Refit all seat bolts with large washers and tighten. Paint all nuts bolts black inside and out.
