Alan you may have to fabricate a bracket as the MK 2 cable as an adjuster at the handbrake lever end which takes out the slack. If you need photos I can mail them to you.

Hi Allan.
My Legerra has disc/drum and a 2.0 pinto and I found it better without the servo.
The right bore of master cylinder is probably more important.
The servo from the Mk 1 escort that sits on the extention housing fits under a sierra bonnet but I think you will have problems with the manifold on the pinto.
The rover/mg metro used a remote one which my fit somewhere up front near the radiator if you are short of space on the bulkhead.?

new hoods are still available from manufactures "pollyfacto" not too dear.

no mention of V5 did it come with one? you will have a very hard time getting it registered if it has not got one!
Re-wiring the car is easy and on the other forum/club sites there is a PDF on step by step instructions on how to re-wire the car.
fuel tank. I have a mk2 cortina fuel tank as fitted to S1's spare, also i have used two reliant robin fuel tanks welded together to give 10 gals or there abouts, a good candidate for a tank must also be the landrover 90 fuel tank (diesel but just wash out and fill with petrol.
Plastic air line from HGV trailers is great for fuel lines (and you can use the snap connectors to join)
bonnet hinge is very simple to make (quite crude on some cars)
hood is easy to fit, as are the doors. (hinges to outside!)
my car is 2.0L pinto, you will need to shorten the sump pan as it will catch the floor all the time.
Best of luck......

I still want to come over and see you lot with the dutton (i work in manchester lots, but drive a truck) but thursday night meetings are not great for me, any chance of a sat/sun meeting in some pub (for a bite to eat as well) Sandy will come along if she has some female company (cars for some odd reason dont do it for her)
