Well here it is, a 1993 Ford EB GLi, stock with the only mod being a EF/EL series thermofans, works when engine required and all the time with aircon on.

everything works minus km gauge, stop at between 128000-129000, previous seller estimates would be at 135000 approx kms, interior is immaculate, just need to give the engine little TLC, fluids, gasket, degreaser etc, doesn't overheat, plenty of power for its series, best of all nice cold aircon!, also has 35% tint with lifetime warranty!

plans to keep it stock for now, will replace cluster with a better one with oil pressure, rpm's tacho etc,

Thoughts?, now need to collect parts for a serpertine belt setup for now and a BBM conversion too in the future, for now running old belt setup (need to replace power steering belt!) till I get the $$$, finally starting work tomorrow so should be able to, mud flaps and front and back sun visors stay on for now (GF likes them!) but will eventually come off, back might stay but front will be removed!

Thanks,
ozeford.

Someone did a somewhat good job at the thermofans install, though need to mount them properly, they are just sitting there atm.

Some have expose wiring, so gonna heat shrink/electrical tape them better soon.

From the Distance

looks tidy. and nice low k's too

hmm yeah bare connections arent fun. but you should be able to find somewhere to mount the relays in a safe place.

cork gasket.. rather normal for a eb actually. just get the rubber replacement and she'll be fine

and lastly the blue plug..
its a temp sender for the climate control, if optioned.
may have a higher spec engine bay loom like mine does as i have that one floating around loose too
no harm leaving it loose either

serpintine conversion would be fun, but i'd only do it if your accessories are worn out honestly

and bbm.. i fail to see the point in doing the conversion.
ive driven stock and converted to bbm and didnt like how it made the car drive afterwards from being the log manifold prior. if anything i find the old log manifold easier to work on

but its your car and your choice though.. have fun

Well just replaced the coolant and thermostat after having major overheating problems, turns out the wire from the water temp sensor came off, so there for no auto thermofans, all good now, and coolant is nice and green, though will replace again soon since I got the cheap stuff not nulon etc,

about to do an oil change tonight also.

cheers,
oze-ford.

Ok so how I totally forgot to post this but one of the previous owner of the car (not sure how many) it for some reason they have put a fair amount of silicon in the cylinder head just under the chain and sprocket?

Image

Noticed it while changing the rocker cover gasket, which is way better then the cork crap and slightly better then the ef/el gaskets, cost abut at $40 but well worth it,

apart from the silicon rocker gear and chain look good just stain from the oil a little.

just wondering if this gonna cause me drama's once it falls off, especially when I use oil flush on it.

yeah wrong towbar tounge is fitted. another off a wreck from the wreckers if yours happens to be a hayman reece?

technically they shouldnt of let you leave the premises of the hire joint with it rubbing like that
as i deal with hooking up the coolrooms etc to customers cars at work.
it's amasing what the customer thinks is acceptable but i wont hook it up if its going to rub or the towcar is too high\low.
