I guess you have this sorted by now but just in case and for anyone else

The earth is the only thing that links indicators to headlights.
A rusty screw in the headlamp bowl.

Right now you look like you have no idea what you're doing and you probably won't take any notice of what people tell you. That might well be wrong but that's how it looks so no body is taking you seriously. OK so let's start again - Those shocks in the picture - what do you think they are? The drum...

It's worrying that you don't understand but hey we're here to help.

The picture of your rear axle shows drums where the discs and calipers should be.

The rear shocks you have are towing shocks with helper springs.
Unless you're going to be towing a caravan - not a very good idea.

Think you need to change the rack first.

Theres not much in the pump to go wrong - certainly not the problems you describe.

Given your situation, I have to say the 12V is what you need, Go looking for a 2.9 Granada to transplant the lot. Yes the 24V looks great and does a bit more power but you got to get your sensible head on here? The 12V is verry cheap and it's a solid relyable base if you want to start tweeking later...

and towing shocks with helper springs?

If you use the proper gearbox (MT75) then you have to make the gearbox cross member. If you're trying to use a type 9 2.8 box which is a bad idea, it should fit. If not, I'm guessing you have a 4 speed shell. In which case - nothing fits. You will need to make a cross member and fixings to the floor.

Re: Front camber adjustment and spacers

I like the sound of reduced understear, and not knocking the out side corners off my tyres in 6 months but what are the pitfalls and hows it done properly? what might it cost on a 2.8i? would it widen the track? Also, are any type of spacers ok? (if i needed them to widen the back to match) I see i...

No - It will fit the lever perfectly. The only thing you will need to do is anchor the second side. Get the calipers on and working fit the cable to the lever and the adjuster in the original anchor Connect to the calipers both sides and hold the cable in place You should now see where the 2nd ancho...

Yes and Yes if the shell is 3 litre.

If not, you will need to drill the front holes in the chassis rails.

The EEC IV management system used on this and many other Fords is extremely good. It's tough and relyable and the wiring is simple. The CVH has all sorts of problems on top of the K-jet issues, but yes K-jet is not that great. What about TBI? why make a simple relyable package more complicated and m...
