Its so nice to have the extra power, also just accelerating all the way to 7000rpm is nice although its been pissing down so iv been taking it easy. Cant wait for dry weather.

Si is gonna have much work done to it hopefully, started it up today and it started first time after a few week.
It came with service history with 95k on the clock for £1995.

jesus thats cheap!

guess its down to the high mileage but since it has a good history that wouldn't phase me :)

does it feel nice and tight and responsive? if so you have probs got a bargain of the year there :D

Shame it hasnt got climate control as I have always found Ford air con to be absolute crap

Looks tidy though, bar the silly rear lights

Whats the deal with the private plate ?

It feels great, power is nice and smooth, I saw it on ebay and thought it was worth alook and ended up leaving a deposit.
The reg came with it, dont know what its meant to say lol.
Im hoping to get all belts done, is there anything I should worry about with the st170 engine?
Thanks for the comments guys

Post subject:  Re: My ST170

Belt and tensioner, oh and water pump. A must. Asap - that's if it hasn't been done.

Seeing a lot of rusty mk1's these days, tailgate and rear arches. Seal them up!

I would;

Sack the stereo off.
Fit fiesta st front seats - nicer profile and st badges.
Sack the st170 badge off and put a newer style st badge on.

Have fun, looks nice. 3 door in black as well!

Nice car mate :) The private plate and rear lights need changing I personally think. But other than that its nice :)

While your at it, bin the exhaust cam and fit a decent one, adds 15bhp but loses the variable cam shite

Author:  DALSY [ Sun Oct 09, 2011 11:56 am ]
Post subject:  Re: My ST170

varaible cam is on the inlet cam Paul, and just leave it alone as it works a treat on these cars with the ecu regulating it depending on throttle position, load etc............

you can fit a vernier pulley onto the exhaust camshaft and adjust it to give slightly more power, but id say hardly worth the expense of the part and rolling road time

when your getting a belt order a GATES belt, best in the buisness, and order a tensioner kit too ( 2 pulleys one idler one tensioner)

Ive never heard of a water pump failing on the blacktop engine, but ive seen them leaking from the back of the pump which was the metal pressed gasket that sits behind the pump, but again just check to see iftheres signs of leakage from teh pump

Definately underated cars, and im sure youll have some fun in it, and the refinemnt of teh Focus is miles better than some cars
