Looking through the forums this seems like quite a common problem!
Decided I'm gonna have to pull the engine to figure out what's up with the clutch, but just wondered if anyone can tell what adapter this is before I pull it all out!





Not the most useful of pics I know!

Thanks!
Richard

From what I can see of it, it looks very similar to mine (mines got a pinto hanging off it as well) which I think came from a company called GB Engineering - still going, but not interested in supplying them any more.

Cheers Steamo Happy
I seem to be developing a knack for this - bought a mini a few years back with a vauxhall engine - first job I had to do was take the engine out to do the clutch!
Now I buy a bay window (bit of an impulsive purchase!) - and the here I am again, engine out to do a clutch!!
Grrrr !

Best of luck with it, post some pics of the adapter once its apart and I'll let you know if it is the same as mine.

Be good to see another pinto one up and running again.

Yes I would agree. it looks like one I have got lying about my garage. I think they were used by the Formula Ford racing guys that allowed them to bolt the pinto engine to the vw box. I was going to use it for my Zetec conversion until I cut up the Mondeo gearbox to make an adaptor. post more pictures and I will compare as well.

Any one want mine for a ford conversion?

Cheers for the replies guys! As I was convinced it was an engine out job I left it at a local garage a mate recommended whilst I went on hols - came back to it all fixed with no need to drop the engine - was just a bit too much flex in the temporary bodge of a master cylinder mount I'd made - only charged me 50 too which made my day Happy

Still not perfect having camped over at Chatsworth last night, but was a relief to have it running again! Happy
