  1. Rich's S2000 Build

    The tube on the passenger side is smaller than on the driver side. This is to accommodate the Mazda diff which sticks further forward on the passenger side. So it is normal. What WF haven’t done is change the design of the tunnel side panel. I had to trim the panel a little to fit round the diff, but you would be better to just trim the panel flush with the tube. If you are going to drill and rivet the panels into those rear tubes you will need to fit them before you fit the diff. I had already fitted the diff when I came to fit the panels, so just bonded them along those edges. Tightening the diff to prop bolts was difficult enough with no tunnel panels fitted, don’t know what it’s like with them fitted.

    Is that not the rear tunnel top panel? I had small blanks which were just the shape of the holes for the left hand end panel.

    Does the battery voltage drop if it’s not connected to the car? Might be worth checking overnight with it disconnected. It will run down quicker with some load, but if it’s dropping when not connected then it’s knackered.
  5. Dash 2 purchase

    I enquired about getting battery voltage displayed on the dash and setting alarms with RT. They confirmed that the only way without Ecu interface is by using up an analog channel. As I’ve used all 4 inputs already they offered me their ANALOG8 at £222 which provides 8 additional inputs. I’d be tempted but can’t think of anything else to put in the other 7 inputs!
  6. Steve's Zetec build thread

    Great, glad it’s sorted. Best of luck for Monday!
  7. Steve's Zetec build thread

    OK, I don't have that alternator so I'm not sure exactly. B+ obviously goes to the battery and I think D+ goes to the warning light. For the light to be on, the alternator will have the D+ terminal effectively switched to ground. With the ignition on, if you meter between ground and D+, I would expect to see about 0v. With the engine running, metering between ground and D+ I would expect to see about 12v. Is it actually charging? Maybe the warning light side of it is the only problem. With the engine running, does the battery voltage increase above the 12.6 you have when it's not running? (having reread your post I think you've already checked this?) Hopefully someone with a zetec will be along shortly to help.....

    How many wires on the alternator? Photo?
  9. Steve's Zetec build thread

    Any loose or broken wires going to the alternator? Check with the engine not running but ignition turned on that you have the ignition live feed to the alternator. This live feed is required for the alternator to charge.

  12. FW Special Build Thread by Complete Novices

    Yes that’s right. It’s a timer relay, so when you push the button the heated windscreen is powered up for a few minutes and then automatically turns off.
  13. Mx5 engine - do I have an issue?

    Can’t remember if it was from exhaust or inlets, but I had the exact same thing happen with my S2000 engine when I had the sump off and left it upside down for a few days. No idea how it got through, but the engine runs fine.

    Well done Tim, excellent news!
  15. Steering column bolts

    Yeah, I’m sure wf will send you more but I found it easier/less stressful just to order more off eBay. I found a lot of the bolts provided were a bit too short so ended up buying longer ones, the steering uj ones were possibly one of those. Just be sure to get hi-tensile ones, at least 8.8
