Hello, My name is Wojtek, I am from Poland, I am an owner of ford cortina mk1 1966. My engine is 1500, but it is not a GT.
I have a question about the engine, what is the tightening torque of the head? And how about the valve clearance?
I would appreciate any help

Thank You very much for such a quick and detailed reply, I can start putting back the engine. I have another question: what is the data necessary to do wheel alignment? Is it possible and necessary to fix/adjust the front wheel alignment angle? Thank You again for Your help.

If any indication of uneven tyre wear or any steering parts have been replaced , always better to check wheel alignment .
