pinto vibration - FIXED !!! ALTERNATOR BRACKET!
anyone help with this fault? Tried: taking off fan belt, settign timing,
plugs, dizzy, carb. Changed flex plate, torque covertor. Still vibrates
heavy areound 2,600 rpm and higher. Seems to have a throb, like a resonant
frequency, its caused other things to fail, its smashed a flex plate,
vibrated the Exhaust bolts, vibrated
out the fuel input pipe to carb. only thing i have swapped of significance
is the cylinder head, using an unleaded one of unknown origin. However im
not sure if fault developed around this time as the Exhaust and other items were all being swapped.
Lots of work was done around same time so I lost track of what happened. I
changed engine mounts too which made it feel worse due to more solid mounts
transmittign the heavy vibration even more into the chassis. so i swapped
back orginal moutns again. Been trying to cure this for 2 months, keep
thinkign it was the transmission, but car is stationary so must be from
engine now. I was convinced it was flexplate at one point but it smashed
that, i fitted a new one and its just as bad vibration.
UPDATE!!!! fixed!!! ALTERNATOR BRACKET BOLT MISSING. ALTERNATOR BEARING
WAS SHOT. DIZZY BEARING WAS LOOSE/WOBBLING SHAFT. COIL WAS WEAK.REPLACED
COIL, DIZZY AND ALTERNATOR. BRACKET BOLT FITTED, NEW FAN BELT, ALL

Here is the best of what I caught.
FORD CORTINA MK3
This is a long term restoration that I have waited eleven years to start,
it's being put together with new old stock panels and as you can see, I'm
not afraid of the work. The shell will be straighter than when Ford put it
together and no, it's not going to be for sale.
I know that some people will comment about the garage space I have but I
built the garage to do the car and it was hard work.
I hope people can get some input from this for their cars. This is just the
