Abingdon track day take 2

Posted by M444TTB in MattB's Blog, 18 July 2014 · 94 views

18th July 2014
Today was Abingdon track day 2014 take 2. The car performed well with no gearbox oil in the footwell this time. I'll check the oil in the morning to see if it lost any but there was nothing on the catch tank optic. As my temperature gauge doesn't really work I still don't know how hot it gets but I'd cool it whenever it hit the 80degC mark...

Tel's Tales 035– Blyton Park 12th and 13th July 2014
Well I don't know where to start really as there was so much going on it was hard to record or remember all the good and bad bits. Firstly I have to say that as our own WSCC organised event this was very well managed and executed by Nick Algar and all the team of volunteers to which are thanks go are...

IVA passed

Posted by JPLS in Nothing ventured nothing gained, 23 June 2014 · 96 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...

Prescott Blog

Posted by alexander72 in Alexander72's Blog, 20 June 2014 · 172 views

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 · 266 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.

Thanks,
Gerald

Longest Build Ever? (Part 2)

Posted by waynezilla in waynezilla's Blog, 27 November 2013 · 507 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...

Propshaft

The Start

Posted by Captain-Dan in Enclosed Trailer Build Diary, 03 May 2013 · 824 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...

Introduction
Welcome to Matthew and Mark's build diary for our Westfield Sport Kit Car. We're first-time kit builders with limited mechanical experience and hope to be able to build a 2-litre Zetec Westfield Sport from a comprehensive (all new parts) kit. We're hoping to complete it in about a year, but it may take longer as we'll only get 2-3 days a mont...
