Ride: 1992 EB II GLi

Location: Peterborough
SA, Australia

Up for sale is my trusty reliable 92 EBII. I have owned it for the past 5 years and in this time have rebuilt it from ground up. The headgasket blew on it about 3 years ago, so I stripped the entire engine. I had the head shaved, [10 thou off] ported and polished internals. Valves, Rockers and Timing Components were all replaced. Checked the pistons and found that they were slightly oversized and were in good condition. I did replace the rings before placing the pistons back. I wanted to protect the engine as best as I could, so fitted a 14mm oversized radiator. It never gets hot now, even with a fully loaded trailer on the back.
The front rotors and pads were replaced about 1 year ago and the callipers were overhauled at the same time. While the rotors were off the vehicle, I replaced the lower ball joints and wheel bearings. I also replaced the uni joints in the tailshaft and had the electronic ignition replaced at the same time too.
To be perfectly honest, mechanically, this vehicle cannot be knocked.
I ahve done many, many, many trips to Adelaide and back and have NEVER been stuck on the side of the road with it.
The interior is in quite good condition for it's age and will be steam cleaned before sale. The body is totally straight with only a couple of small stone chips.
All that I can say is that this vehicle is in absolutely A1 running condition and is the most reliable vehicle that I have owned. I now own an AU and the EB has to go.

Am looking for $1500.00 ono, mainly just to cover the engine rebuild.
I am open to negotiations so please don't be afraid to approach me and ask for some details.
Please Note: Wheels shown in pics are not sold with this vehicle. These were the only pics I had at the time and the wheels were borrowed. Vehicle is fitted with standard 14"X8" rims.

OHHHH PISS OFF!! I don't have time for tyre kickers. I haven't advertised here to have people knock it. Just because I haven't stated every single little thing that was changed, doesn't mean that it hasn't had a full rebuild. I have a mate who is a qualified mechanic and advised that I place the pistons back in and just replace the rings. He also checked the bottom end for me and informed me that it all looked like new. So why change something if it doesn't need changing. EVERYTHING between the block and head has been repaired, fixed or replaced. Including components that were still in good condition, but I didn't like the looks of. So as you said, not exactly fully rebuilt, but my mechanic friend said "Beautifully Done" and as close to rebuild as you can get.

EVL098, Yeah, You heard the man....Piss Off :lol: LOL :lol:

Thats hilarious mate for the simple reason he wasn't having a go at you, He was simply making a comment, And the last I heard thats what forums were partly about. And the fact that you only have two posts suggests to me that you should pull your head in.
My two cents worth :D

I dont exactly have the time for people falsely advertising items neither.
You are advertising by the very title of your ad a Fully Rebuilt EBII For Sale. Therefore you are advertising a car. The start of your ad says as a direct quote "Up for sale is my trusty reliable 92 EBII. I have owned it for the past 5 years and in this time have rebuilt it from ground up." once again stating that you have completely rebuilt the car.
This you have not.
A rebuilt motor , new brakes on the front , a new radiator and a couple of new lower balljoints does not constitute a full rebuild.
Maybe advertise it as an EBII with a rebuilt motor which it actually is and you wont have tyre kickers like myself here picking holes in your ficticious advertisement.
You dont seem to realise that this website is made up of Ford Fanatics that knew the difference and value between a car with a rebuilt motor and a fully "ground up" rebuilt car as you proclaim to be selling as they are not as stupid as you wish to seem them to be and believe your drivel.
Had enough to say now.
Seeing as though these seem to be your first posts may I take the time to welcome you to Fordmods and wish you to enjoy your stay.

Nah mate, no false advertising here. You just need to learn the difference between a rebuild and a restoration. A rebuild generally applies to an engine, whereas a restoration generally applies to the complete vehicle. If I had said Fully Restored, then I would agree with all that you have said. I hope that this clears that up for you. :wink:

So I take it the gearbox was rebuilt ,the diff rebuilt , the complete braking system was rebuilt.....................

A restoration involes a fully mechanical rebuild and paint and panel.
No matter what you say and what ever way you try to spin doctor it your car is NOT fully rebuilt from the ground up!

As you are a newbie welcome along to the rollercoaster that is Fordmods.
i have to agree with evil. When i saw this ad, i assumed the car had been FULLY re-built. To me that includes the body, interior, mechanicals etc. I was surpirsed when i read the topic that it was only a nice looking EB with a semi re-cond engine and a few other parts replaced. It still looks like a reasonable buy, but is not by any stretch of the imagination a "fully rebuilt EB".
Also, my experience with engines has led me to believe there is a fully rebuilt motor, this includes re-bore, new bearings new lifters, head re-cond etc. and there is a serviced, or re-conditioned motor that means being stripped down and whatever needs replacing is done, such as honing and new rings, but not a rebore.
These are two totally different things, just as a fully rebuilt car is another kettle of fish altogether.
Maybe the add would have caused less confusion if it read something like "EBII with recond motor and other new bits"

My $0.02 worth. :wink:

OKAY OKAY. I'll just clear something up. Over the past 5 years I have had the car totally stripped, inside and out. The only thing is, I just didn't have it totally stripped all in one go. I stripped the body and engine at the same time. I checked the body for rust etc, re-aligned the doors, replaced hinges and struts. I dropped the diff and had my mate chaeck the centre and axles, it appeared that they were recently replaced, so put them back together. There were already new rear rotors fitted, so just replaced the pads and callipers on the rear. I replaced the uni joints in the tailshaft and then had the gearbox inspected. I hadn't been experiencing any problems with the gearbox and was happy when my mechanic mate informed me that it too, appeared to have had replacement parts installed, not so long ago. The bores were inspected and we decided that no honing was needed, as they still looked fresh. The Pistons and Bearings looked new too, so we replaced the rings and bolted it all back together. While all this was going on, I had the head at the specialists, having it shaved, ported and polished. I purchased the head gasket kit, new rockers, valves, head bolts, timing chain & tensioners and I seriously can't remeber half of what I actually purchased to complete it. I got the head back, all shiny and new and bolted it all back together. I bolted the gearbox back onto the engine and dropped it back in. I bolted the fuel injection and exhaust back on and connected all the wiring. After having a little fiddle with the timing, she cranked over and sounded better than ever. No tick, no rattles, just the nice purr of a decent tuned engine.
A year later, I started noticing a shakey steering wheel and put it down to a warped front rotor. I was wrong, but hey, at least I had new front rotors, callipers and pads. The shaking ended up being a worn lower ball joint. So while I was replacing the ball joint, I had the front end inspected and was surprised when pedders informed me that the only thing that they could find wrong under the front end, were those worn ball joints. No front end rebuild required, what a relief.
About 6 months ago, I ripped out the interior, to fit my new audio system. I pulled up the carpet and unerlay and inspected the flooring for any rust holes etc. I ran all my cables where I needed them and then put the interior back together.
Well I think that, that is pretty much it. If I can think of any other repairs that I have done, then I will be sure to inform you all.
I thankyou all for your feedback and comments and look forward to continuing communication with you in future,
CHEERS ALL,
DK2B
