  1. Zetec Throttle Bodies

    Nothing to connect it to. Tape it up. Have you reflaashed the ECU yet?
  2. Battery Options

    I'm challenging the cheap price!
  3. Battery Options

    That's not a lot of money to set your car on fire with..............potentially ...............and your car it too nice to torch!
  4. Happy Birthday Geoffrey

    MHR have a great day @Geoffrey (Buttercup) - North Yorkshire AO
  5. Wiring plug problem

    Once you've got one out, you'll see the metal barb that retains the pin in the plastic housing. If you hold the pin with a clean pair of long nose small pliers you can push it towards the housing and unclip it.
  6. Happy Big Birthday Kernow

    Happy Birthday John @Kernow. Have a great day!

  9. Anyone starting their winter tinkering list yet ?

    Hi TJ, how many miles have the discs done. I guess there's no noticeable lip between the unused part that you're now planning to use and the rest of the disc face?
  10. Body Fitting

    No measurements, just line it up by eye. If you slot the hole in the bottom of the nose cone, you've got some adjustment. You can also bend the mounting plate to help too. I've used a large washer and also a M8 knurled bolt from e-bay for mine. This pic shows a slight bend in the bottom mount.
  11. Battery Cable to Starter

    Here's what came in my kit: https://parts.westfield-sportscars.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=349&search=battery&description=true The the length in the pic looks misleading. This looks suitable too: https://parts.westfield-sportscars.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=853&search=lead&description=true Earth strap is: https://parts.westfield-sportscars.co.uk/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=344&search=lead&description=true&page=2
  12. Battery Cable to Starter

    Hi Peter, It's not really shown on the attached PDF. Are you using a factory provided kit or making your own (I assume the latter). I've not really got any pics of how my factory one is connected. Its' the chunky brown wires below. Only the starter solenoid was wired when this pic was taken. The alternator wasn't fitted and hence not wired. It goes from the battery +ve to the alternator +ve and the starter +ve, all on the alternator side of the engine, It also goes to the 60A main fuse(arrowed below) which is normally fitted above the passenger footwell on the diagonal rail. Don't forget you need a hefty earth from the chassis to the block also. Shown here: I don't appear to have pics of the cable from the positive terminal though, sorry. Make sure you rubber boot all these +ve points as they're unfused and easy to catch a spanner on! You need them booted for IVA too. 4994 Honda S2000 Engine Harness.dwg.pdf
  13. Rear Upright Removal Help

    Ash has forgotten to mention that the 32mm nut is at 250lb/ft. I'd personally avoid doing this as there's no need to disturb the wheel bearings with the method below. An easier way is to leave the stub shaft in the hub by undoing the six cap headed bolts from the drive shaft to the stub shaft. The long stud through the bottom of the upright can be a pig to get out too
  14. Using a relay as a Fog lamp controller, (IVA safe)

    This diagram may assist those wishing to understand how the above solution works! Pin 86 is the positive of the coil and pin 87 is the ground.
  15. Wanted Westfield Anti Roll bar

    Glad you're sorted. For other BEC's, I've spoken with Siltech and they did experiment with different bars for BEC and they've found there standard bar with it being adjustable, is suitable for both BEC & CEC. CEC will typically have the bar stiffer than BEC.
