For work I recently acquired some long feeler gauges for poking into joints in building cladding systems. They don't need to be accurate for this just thin and flexible. My question is. What is the…Continue

Yesterday I pick up a phase 2 silver top 1800 Zetec, for vurtually free, the price of a few beers. I knew it had been standing outside for two years under a sheet. I was told it turned over. I set…Continue

Randomly purchased an unknown bike exhaust from a car boot sale yesterday.  When I got home did some Google searches, it would appear to be a titanium Yamaha R1 exhaust - not bad fro £3.  I have…Continue

Q42 CPF - Progress

Posted on September 5, 2016 at 13:00 60 Comments

I thought it was time I logged the work to returning my Phaeton to the road

2011 - Car bought.  Not having been laid up for many year the car was going to need some restoration to get it back on the road.

2012 - Spent time wondering about changing from Pinto power.  Bought various V6 engine, Then sold the same many V6 engines.



Ecu & Induction Advice Please

Posted on April 23, 2014 at 21:12 2 Comments

I see my options as 

1,  bike throttle bodies' aftermarket ecu - expensive

 2, keep the Jag in take and use X Type wiring loom and ecu, think this is related to the Ford EEC V ecu - cheap solution but the ugly intake might have to poke out of the bonnet

3,  Fit an ST 24 intake, cable throttle body and aftermarket ecu.  

You thoughts as to the best solution please

Project Hunk of Junk - Essex Advice Required

I am due to collect another Essex V6 block in a couple of weeks and then while building up a decent engine, I plan to use the old worn block to figure out how to work out some engine mountings for my Phaeton S2.  Does anyone have any photos of an Essex in a Phaeton?  Ideally in a S2 and showing the mountings.  Noticed the build manual (PDF from the DOC web site) suggests using Transit 2.0 mounts on Ford V6 engines.  I assume this would be the V4 transit not the pinto.  I found some V4…
