    Yup, that's why I like it... did I ever tell you how much I like the colour of yours?! Did you get the ST engine in the end?

    Cheers for all the comments lads.
    I lacking motivation at present, all seems to be at a stand still. The car moves rightly even tough i've only done about 10 miles in it since the install. Weather here is just depressing. Would probably get alot more use out of a boat instead of a car.

    Did it myself ya. Theres the usual bits and pieces you get with any install, where to mount things etc. Retro ford make life so much simpler with the water rail and mounts. Where in Donegal are ya from? I live in grange, if ya want to see the car anytime let me know. I,ll be at the Radisson on Sunday for the Neal Egan run if your around it would be worth a visit.

    Cheers for the nice comments. I'm actually working in Galway 3 days a week. Was at the Galway races yesterday. Things went well so i think a new set of rims are on order.

    Re: st170 mk2 escort

    Hello

    I was just searching in the internet and came across you post, your beautiful mk2 escort.
    I have an mk1, also with a ST170 engine, but if you can help with something it would be great.

    At the moment my engine is stock (only lighter flywheel, and alu crankshaft), but my major problem is the fuel pump, can i use the stock one or replace with some RED FACET 7PSI (bought to fit a pinto engine, but gave up that), i have 2 of them. In you car you also have 2, therefor my question.

    Hope to hear from you soon

    Cheers

    The thread is 9 years old and the OP hasn't been back to the site for nearly 5 - so chances of an answer are remote!

    But you cannot use an EFI stock pump with carbs - especially bike carbs! A single red top Facet would suffice but require a good regulator also and bike carbs do not have good float needles - 2psi pressure is sufficient!
