Just wondering if it's worth having the original plates?
I've got the original ones on hold but want to go into club plates cause it's way cheaper.
Is is a big deal?
I would not want to be doing up a Corty MKIII as a inexpensive hobby or for fun so to speak. That is unless like Dave maybe or others on this forum who have a backyard full of donator cortys. Have you seen the absolutely obscene prices they are asking for stuff on eVilBay:SHOCKED: There are...

Three years ago I had my 40 year old brass core radiator re-cored because it was blocked. This is what AAA genuine quality guaranteed copper re-core looks after just three years. This is the problem with rebuilds, not the old stuff failing it's the rebuilt crap not lasting as long.:<

OMG, I never thought looking after radiators and the coolant in the corty could be so complicated. Check this out some very good advise for those contemplating changing either their cooling systems or coolants.

Has anyone whacked a Barra240/245 engine in a Cortina? Would it actually fit because I think it's a pretty tall engine?
