I give up. Who has a part number for at least slotted rotors?
Any luck Gaz?
Looking at these is Australia

The Calipers you guy talk about from a 95 Escort, I am thinking it is the Ford Laser here in Aus. But checking the stamp will guide me I guess.

Holy hell, my hero! Sure are pricy, though. Also, doesn't state the bolt pattern. The pictures are five lug...somewhat disconcerting.

Is there any chance you can post a photo of exactly where you're talking about? I have a car with similar symptoms, but I'm not exactly clear on what baffle you're talking about.

Thanks for the info.  I never realized that sealing the baffle was that important.

In the past I have posted that I have had problems with bogging and surging of my car. These problems were encountered from pretty much the first day I had the car 10 years ago. It seemed worse the longer the car was driven and higher temperatures. I had replaced all ignition components, had the injectors cleaned and flow tested, multiple ground straps from body to engine, replaced the VAF and verified fuel pressure while the car was surging. The spark plugs were quite white, indicating lean running.

Recently I noticed oil inside the J pipe and even had oil at the exit of the VAF. No shaft play at all in the turbo.

It was clear that the oil came from the fresh air vent into the valve cover from the J pipe. I pulled the valve cover and disassembled the baffle for the fresh vent air side. There was a ton of oil in the baffle, even at the point where the hose nipple is in the valve cover.

I noticed that there was no sign of gasket for the baffle in the area between the baffle opening and the far chamber of the baffle. So it appears that the oil was shortcut past most of the baffle. The valve cover has never been removed from the engine. I cleaned the valve cover and baffle with brake cleaner and resealed/installed the baffle.  I installed a clear hose between the valve cover and the J pipe.   

No more surging/bogging and the hose remained clear/clean over a 70 mile drive. The car is a joy to drive and accellerates strongly and smoothly even while cruising along at 25MPH in 5th gear.

Hopefully my discovery and repair will help someone else who is experiencing these issues.

Now my next project is full synthetic 75w-90 oil in the transmission and adjustable boost control to bring boost to 12-14 lbs.

Awesome. I have a similar symptom, so will try a VAF. Can anyone confirm if the VAF is the same on the turbo and N/A models?

My problem was indeed the VAF.

..Has anyone ever rebuilt or were able to find a rebuilt Distributor Advance Module..??...My rubber diaphragm has obviously shrunk or has a rip in it causing the car to come to an almost stall condition at idle..I shot some carb cleaner into the vacuum module and the engine of course regains power. I have searched for a replacement but it seems you can't just buy the module you have to buy the Distributor also to get it and they of course aren't cheap...
