Tel's Tales 040– Thoresby Park 13 th & 14 th Sept 2014

Well here was the weekend I was not sure whether to compete at. Despite its great scenery it is a tricky, very tight track and atrocious in the wet due to the overhanging trees. Actually it stayed dry but overcast all weekend but even so the damage to cars, particularly bodywork has always...

Cozy Powell

Posted by Wagoneer in Wagoneer's Blog, 14 September 2014 · 75 views

Well, after my many hours of toil trying to remove the nearside brake drum, I think a little Cozy would be worth listening to. It's off! We persevered with the process of using Rost Off and jiggling the drum about plus a generous amount of filing around the axle and eventually, pop! it came off.

Taking the plunge

Posted by Dave Stirrup in First Westi, 20 August 2014 · 163 views

Well after a couple of years warming the passenger seat in Mark Redpath's SEW i started to look for one of my own. Following a car accident when i was younger (which we don't talk about. do we Mark?) its time to give up motorcycling. The pain in my wrist and hand is just to much. I needed something to replace the feeling i get from biking but without the...

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has bothered to read my silly journal. Hopefully none of those 20,000 views are from my wife who might work out what some stuff has cost!

IVA passed

Posted by JPLS in Nothing ventured nothing gained, 23 June 2014 · 159 views

It would seem i have been a little remiss in keeping this blog up to date - but all things come to an end. So ends this blog

Long story short I passed IVA on Friday 20th June :t-up:

Admittedly it was 2nd attempt, but not dissapointed - I trailered the car for the first appointment on Tuesday and as it passed all the safety bits i.e brakes, steering, bui...

Apologies for the delay in preparing this blog but I have been on a Site Supervisors Health and Safety Course all week.... enough to drive any one insane!

Prescott Hill is owned by the Bugatti Owners Club and as such is one of the old classics in the Hillclimb world. Situated in gorgeous woodland on the edge of the Winchcombe hills it really is typically...

So, I've not had a great deal of time to work on the car, but some stuff has happened.

I finally found an exhaust manifold that will do what I want.

northweald, sprint, megabusa

The last even at North Weald I left feeling a bit frustrated by the huge margin by which the others had beaten my by plus my struggle to actually put a clean lap in!

I was hoping for more sun shine but the weather forecast was for rain all day, never having driven the Busa in the wet i knew this would be an interesting day should it rain. The morning was...

Fitting the Head

Posted by Adrian Clinton-Watkins - WSCC Webmaster in How to Assemble a Duratec, 09 March 2014 · 331 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...

CO2 Emissions

Posted by japltor60 in japltor60's Blog, 20 January 2014 · 317 views

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.

Thanks,
Gerald

Longest Build Ever? (Part 2)

Posted by waynezilla in waynezilla's Blog, 27 November 2013 · 549 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...
