work has stalled on the Special as we are concentrating on the green MK2-which by the way is coming along very nicely.  I did get the yellow fires radiator and master cylinder sorted, and got a 3.09 centre for the diff in case the one it was changed ( I assume it was due to its racing heritage)

Just got back onto this great forum and caught up on your 165 project JR.  Great work!  Let me know if you need electrical help for the car.

That's pretty special I'm in the same boat. My 13yr old girl loved my Capris. She went this year to Capriciation 2019. She fell so much in love with them she made me give her one. She gets it as your girl at 16 but I won't let her take ownership or take it out alone until she's 21. She is happy with that. As for the motor have you checked the 11 specials post. Or Ron's small ford. They will give you your info. Need to add we both need to build it together so I'm buying parts. And will teach her what to do. Lucky me lol.

You need to start your own post regarding your car so all can comment.

Den, I think its time to start a thread on your car, and move everything from my post and Johns post across.
