Please read BEFORE posting a for sale or wanted ad

Due to the increase number of for sale and wanted threads appearing, the need for a few 'ground rules' has arisen.
  • Please begin your thread title with either 'FOR SALE' or 'WANTED' to avoid confusion.
  • Please state your location, even if this is available on your profile.
  • When selling, please indicate a price.
  • Where possible, please try to include pictures (this applies mostly to vehicles rather than parts) as it will improve your chances of a sale.
  • Try also posting your advert in the proper Classifieds section on the club website.
  • And finally, please post when your item has sold or you have found what you are looking for so we can close the thread to avoid unnecessary hassle.

Adverts not conforming to this structure may be locked without notice until the necessary changes are implemented to avoid the unnecessary clogging up of the forum with people repeatedly asking the same questions.

Many thanks

  • [Wanted] Maestro 2.0EFi timing belt tensioner

    Has anyone got one of these they could sell me or know where a retailer might have something in stock? My car is with a repairer having a couple of jobs done and they can't get hold of the right part from their usual supplier or from Rimmers.

    Timing belt tensioner for 2.0 EFi Maestro O series. It is a 1985 model and I don't know if they altered over time or not so have included a picture of the one that has been removed from the car.

    It does look like the early one is different. Plenty of 86 on out there. I could not find anything for the early type engine. Might be worth investigating inline O series engine parts from the Marina, Princess sherpa etc?

      This link, might not be the one, but it does give specific engine codes, which might help. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Gates-Tim...AAAOSw2kZZb3iG

          Thanks both,
          Dave you are right. I found Jeff's thread last night in the depths of the forum and I have bought a Ford Pinto tensioner from eBay which the garage doing the work is going to modify and fit. I didn't think a service item like this would be totally unobtainable but if everything changed in 1986 then there won't be many cars left with the same arrangement as mine. I drew a blank on Ital, Ambassador and SD1 as well.

              Are you sorted, I have a whole gaggle of early and very late bits and pieces for a 2.0EFi, I could go look.

                  Thanks for the kind offer Soulcharger; no need to look on this occasion as I used Jeff's experience to source the Ford item. The early tensioners do seem to be completely different to anything else for the 1984 & 1985 cars and eBay seems to be best avoided unless the photograph shows the actual item.
