Ford Cortina MK3 GXL Restoration EP62 PT 2
Dintrol application. Future videos will have much lower background music
from now on (EP62 PT3 onwards), I hadnt realised it was loud, ill be
sparing with the music from now on it causes various issues with youtube
and also is distracting from films too, ill just pop in the odd song now
and again, thanks for your feedback on this issue.
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
