    Same for me
  2. what's the price for the engine? also, does it have a ybd number?
  3. yb crank pulley

    righto, thanks Paul. once i strip the engine, i'll have a good look at both the crank and pulley and might look at the option of possibly machining a key way on both at 180 degrees from original. although, apart from the balance issue, is there a power/performance benefit of any sort when using the aluminium pulleys, or is it not worth it?
  4. yb crank pulley

    hi all, soon, i'll be gearing up to strip down my engine to repair the crank snout (worn key way) and replace the crank pulley (original unit was damaged due to incorrectly fitted crank key) was just wondering, what are your thoughts on the lightweight aluminium crank pulleys? is there a benefit in going aluminium or should i stick with the standard cosworth pulley? btw, i am looking at the Graham Goode pulley http://shop.grahamgoode.com/sierra--sapphire-2wd-cosworth-aluminium-crankshaft-pulley-ggr2001-75249-p.asp many thanks to all.

  10. Dick Johnson RS500 - DJR1

    fantastic looking car Andy. the DJR sierras have always been my favourite. It was DJ and his sierras that got me hooked on them in the first instance when i was 10 yrs old and following the ATCC. Sadly, i believe this car lives on the wrong side of the world ;-)

    Ben, did you get my msg from the weekend? Bryan sala had a sign with some details of the car, including owner history. I'll dig it out of my phone and post it here.
  13. Hi Paul,
    how are you?

    FYI, i own a RS500 although it was sold to me without the original ybd engine.
    i wanted to get in touch to ask if by any chance there are any RS500 ybd blocks out there just like the one you sold last october.

    i may need to rebuild my engine soon so i might  take the opportunity to build it up with the appropriate block this time round (depending on costs).

    many thanks,

      Hi there, Burton Performance had a batch for sale on their website, not sure if they are still available and a chap called John Kennedy had a bare one for sale on here a little while ago. I will send you a link

    attached is another pic of my car where it's a little cleaner. stupidly of me, i had left some parts (inc. original splitters) at my parent's house and my dad threw them in the rubbish tip when they moved house. this sadness lives with me until today.
