i remember my escort days... i beat the snot out of my CVH motors but both held up... (two escorts both rotted away) just a little smoke on start (bad valve seals) but after that what a champ!
I got rid of them 'cause my friends started passing me water bottles and gum through the wheel wells while i was doing the breaks...
I also miss the winter fun in them though... freezing your ass off cause of the little missing ball in the t-stat housing but oh well.. sliding into curbs and thinking... mehh whats out of my pocket 700 bux? thank you ad's in the paper. and a managed 35-40mpg on the highway back and forth from school at the time.
anyone need a complete 91 valve head with cam and gears? all its missing is the cover
