  1. Valentinik's Duratec Build

    I got started on the header tank today, the filler neck and mountings are tacked in place. Now i can position where the inlet and outlet pipes best positioning will be.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I’d made it with the intention of it fitting there. As there isn’t really other space to mount it. Il leave it there and see how I get on with it. Mike

    Whilst making up the coolant header tank i realised i needed an oil catch tank too. So i spent half an hour making one up and i got it mounted in place tonight. I just need to drill 2 more holes for hose fittings and get it powder coated. Now I just need to finish making the header tank that i meant to make
  4. Brake master cylinder piston sizes

    Yes it’s definitely smaller on the front. I found this Tilton video helpful: https://youtu.be/ISLqGf0sMX0 mike
  5. Sport 250 (2.0 ecoboost) prop length

    I got mine from dunning and fairbank. I supplied them with a mk1 mx5 propshaft (the mk1 has the same gearbox output as the mk3 5speed) i bought off eBay for £15. I just told them i was using a sierra 7' diff and they knew what fitting i would need. Mike
  6. Sport 250 (2.0 ecoboost) prop length

    On the Duratec (same engine design as ecoboost) build using the mazda gearbox and Sierra diff my measurement was 580mm from diff flange to the oil seal on the gearbox Mike

    Thanks justin, I may well do that.

    No, due to the sidewall bulge, the straghtedge sits around 3-5mm outside of the arch. I think this may be an issue come IVA? i was planning on using a set of different wheels for the test though because Westfield seem to be unwilling to provide me with a calibration certificate for my speedo with the 13" wheels.

    Thanks chaps. @CosKev, i think its the angle of the photo, they're very close but inside.

    The cellophane tyre warmers really don’t work though
  12. Valentinik's Duratec Build

    Thanks guys. I got the tyres mounted and then fitted them this afternoon. I’m really pleased with the look now they’re all on. A much better look that the build wheels.
  13. Valentinik's Duratec Build

    My rear wheels arrived from compomotive today. Hopefully will get the tyres mounted and fitted tomorrow.
  14. Brake master cylinder piston sizes

    I used 0.625 front and 0.7 rear. Which seems to be the standard choice.

    I don’t think it should be a problem. I’ve got an Fw front so getting access to that bit isn’t too bad for me.
