  6. Please, show me the money! I have never knowingly seen a 4 litre one. There were rumours of some folk running the pushrod 4.0 version in their bangers at unlimited meetings (as well as some folk actually running 2.0 versions in their bangers at UK national 2 litre meetings)
  7. Lovely grande woodlouse by the way, what a bobby dazzler!
  8. One way to confirm this is the exhaust manifolds: 2.8 Cologne has siamese exhaust ports so only two flange manifold whereas 2.9 Cologne has conventional exhaust porting and subsequently, three flange manifolds. As mentioned before, the injection system looks like the efi set up from the 2.9 variant and the rocker covers don’t look like the sexual cast alloy type the last of the 2.8’s wore. Should anybody have stayed awake long enough to get this far through this post, their reward will be thusly: To tell the difference between the 2.3 & 2.8 Cologne engines (also works for the 2.4 & 2.9 versions) at a glance, observe the location of the dipstick. Rearwards of the passenger side, rear exhaust port/manifold = 2.8 (or 2.9), exiting up through the space between ports in the passenger side exhaust manifold = 2.3 (or 2.4) I believe some Ford Exploders were fitted with a 4.0 litre strain of the Cologne, I know not of their dipstick orientation. I must be stopped now.

  11. The wait* is over, I can reveal what I have spent today doing, Fetching this fine slice Suffolkwards! The scholar and gentleman that is SRi05 retrieved me from Glasgow Central station, aimed me at the M8 and the rest is history. Traffic woes aside, the drive back was grand, super comfy, surprisingly frugal, well impressed. I must sleep now
  12. Tisn’t one o’those! Top marks for telegraph crossword levels of lateral thinking, alas I will not be depleting Scotlands Volvo levels. I’m now at: facing backwards whilst travelling forwards or some suchlike.
  13. I think it’s fairly trick and there is a tedious link to the manufacturers of aforementioned Cortinas. The only thing italian about it is the colour and hopefully not the electricity retention tendencies. Currantly (mouldy bun reference) facing the opposite way to my direction of travel whilst passing through:
  14. It can only mean one thing. (P.S. The Ferrero Rocher isn’t a subtle hint at an Ambassador collection)
