EN­GINE

Classic Ford - - CF BUYER -

Signs of a ter­mi­nally tired en­gine are noisy rocker gear, high oil con­sump­tion, heavy breath­ing and blue ex­haust smoke. A ne­glected cool­ing sys­tem can give rise to head gas­ket fail­ure so look for signs of hot run­ning.The gas­ket most com­monly blows be­tween cylin­ders two and three, but it can of­ten be avoided with a cheap fix of re­plac­ing the core plugs and blasting out the wa­ter­ways.
