Hi havent adjusted tappets for 15 years now , is a ford ka easy to do.

As I Understand the, the KA has a 1300 cc Ford Cortina or Escort cast iron engine. Therefore the tappet adjustment is the same as always. Place the cylinder on TDC compression stroke and adjust the tappets on its paired cylinder. IE 1->4: 2->3: etc.

2l Ford Cortina motor...cuts out as I go up a slightly steep hill. Is it too much fuel in bowl or too little?. I tried bending the float arm ever so slightly ...trying allow more fuel, but it seems worse

Two things to check. Fuel pressure, and is the carb. bowl very clean. Sometimes if there is dirt in the bowl, and when you go up hill, the dirt shifts back and blocks the fuel flow. When you open the carb. blow out the bowl and jets. The float level if set correctly will not do this.
