Tel's Tales 026 – 3 Sisters 6th April 2014

Some of the competitors had a few preparation problems before the event including Steve Everall not being able to find any polish for his car and having the rear of the tub resprayed after a shunt last year. Matt Turner was still waiting for a new clutch which seemed to have got lost en route. I had a panic wh...

Northweald, Sprint

Bit of back ground. I've been sprinting since around 2004 in a K-series S1 Elise then in a S2 111r Elise from about 2007, but in 2010 I became a dad and was getting married so the Elise had to go and sprinting was put on hold until funds and time would allow me to get out there again.

Last year i managed to pursuade the wife that i should buy a new toy t...

Posted by czphillips in czphillips' Sigma Swap, 24 March 2014 · 198 views

So, about 6 months ago I bought my '91 SEi, although for 5 and a half months I did nothing with it, I didn't even remove it from the previous owners unit...

I bought it to replace my Fiesta track car (that ended up seeing little track use) as its rust issues got too bad for me to warrant repairing. I had always planned on moving into a kit car eventually...

22nd March 2014
Unfortunately the car failed it's MoT today. Both front headlights, which I thought I had checked, aren't working (side and full beam work though), NS brake light doesn't work and both lower front ball joint dust covers need replacing. Also given advisories on play in both front wheel bearings.

Fitting the Head

Posted by Adrian Clinton-Watkins - WSCC Webmaster in How to Assemble a Duratec, 09 March 2014 · 152 views

So the next job is to fit the head to the block. Start off by fitting the oil restrictor to the block. It is critical this this has the tapered hole towards the top to ensure that it will align up with the head regardless of the casing position.



Next the ARP studs are screwed into position. These need to be cleaned spotless with brake cleaner, and I u...

I have a year 2000 SEiW westfield with a 1996cc pinto SHOC engine. Does anyone know the official CO2 emissions (g/km) for this model, and if so do you have (or can you direct me to) official documentary evidence of this from Westfield Cars please.

Longest Build Ever? (Part 2)

Posted by waynezilla in waynezilla's Blog, 27 November 2013 · 420 views

Before too long a rolling chassis was stood upon the chassis stands. Looking quite good but not quite looking like a Westfield yet. Still a long way to go... The bodywork was hanging from the roof out of the way and my parts box was pretty much empty. Time to start thinking about how to power the beast.

I'd already decided that Zetec power was the way to...

The Start

Posted by Captain-Dan in Enclosed Trailer Build Diary, 03 May 2013 · 724 views

I built my Westfiield last year and have a nice home for it in my garage. Due to work I am due to move in October and where I am moving to there is no garages - I also tend to move every 2 years and can't guarantee if I will have anywhere to store it. My solution is to build an enclosed trailer. I explored many options including purchasing a Brian William...
