Are there many Ultimas left, I remember seeing 2 or 3 when I first bought mine but must confess, even though I drive 40,000+ miles per year all around the country, I haven't seen another for years. Ford only built a small batch and couldn't sell them at the time, so does anyone know how many were built, how many are likely to be left and how much is a 36,000 miler worth now? Is it one of a kind now.

I'm currently in talks with Ford and AutoEuropa to try and obtain production/sales figure breakdowns so will hopefully be able to answer this soon!

 Woohoo   Woohoo   Woohoo

YIPPPEEEEE

The Ultima is now running with a sweet sounding engine purring away.

Thanks to Daz and his brilliance I managed to bypass the automatic starting restricions so now she is just like a manual.


BUT as they say every bit of good news has to have some bad news

Yep I have a problem with the clutch and or gears as it seems there is no drive going through to the driveshafts and it is possible to select a gear withoput using the clutch peddle.

I have posted a topic about this  HERE in MK 1 Technical help to keep it seperate.

YYYYYIIIIIIIIPPPPPEEEEEE


 Yahoo!  Woohoo   Yahoo!

Thanks to the legendary Daz I know have power at the wheels and can select all the gears normally.

It's all systems go no to put it all back together again by monday for it's MOT the the trip upto Scotland.

The problem was the inner driveshaft whichs goes into the box the splines at the end has somehow stripped and whould not engage into the drive gear inside the box.

The soloution was to obtain a second hand drive shaft and fit it instead.
