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 OK!!!!!!!!!!!

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 first video. Regards.





Ford Cortina GXL Rebuild EP1 PT1 (1 of 3)
Due to youtube i'm restricted to 15 min videos. Sorry about this. Its due to copyright issues on songs. Not sure why they changed the policy. Ok, here we have the first installment of the rebuild video. As im now re-assembling all the components I'm calling it rebuild- not resto for the next phase of videos. EP50 is the last film of the old series and will be uploaded once the shell is back. After that we are on reuild 1, 2,3 etc, with each film is in 3 or 4 parts (due to 15 mins restriction) On this first film we see also see some work on my Green GXL, as well as the normal restoration work on swampy. If there are more votes and views I'm not sure if this helps the channel with the upload restriction. Im thinking of making a fa
