    Westfield SEIW

    l have been offered a westfield project by a neigbour so I am thinking of selling my current car if anyone interested. 1995 wide body fitted 2.0 zetec believed to be a crate engine approx 3k miles ago with 4 x bike carbs. Type 9 gearbox 5 speed. Siltec rear wishbones and Protec rear shocks fitted over the winter. Recent polo radiator. The wheels were powder coated in January with new tyres. MOT 05.06.2019 Slight oil leak, I have been quoted 4 hours labour plus seal, so happy to discuss this or get it done. This is a very clean and tidy car. I have the used car sales invoice from Westfield when they sold it in August 1996, so possibly a factory produced demo? 9400 Chris 07773000790
  2. Hi John, if you come off the a38 at Ivybridge , I can wait for you there, then we could all rejoin together, what time are you thinking?
  3. John I might be around, do you have a route planned yet? cheers Chris

    zetec breather problem

    Hi Kernow, many thanks for your photos. Since you messaged me l have looked online and as you say everyone has their dip stick by the exhaust. As you have a block breather and logic would suggest a block breather was a good idea, I have ordered a block breather fitting so I can run it back to the catch tank. Hopefully that will sort things out. I think Martin Rice is your AO, I am not that far from you guys so perhaps will catch up in the summer, cheers Chris

    zetec breather problem

    Hi , the breather pipe from the rocker goes to a catch tank, but at the moment no other breather. I see you have the same engine as me, would you have any photos of your engine bay pipework? if yours is running ok, then mine should as well if I set up the same, thanks for reply chris

    zetec breather problem

    I have just got my car on the road and have quickly got an oil leak. The oil appears to be blowing up out of the dip stick and then running down the side of the bellhousing. Behind the manifold there is a blanking plate where I am told a stock breather would normally be. Also to the left of this there is a spigot on the block blanked off with a rubber pipe and a bolt in the end. I am guessing I have too much pressure building up in the block. What's the easiest way to fix? Any help much appreciated Chris

    mk2 escort / mk1 fiesta mirror

    Hi, I am looking for either a near side chrome mirror or a black pair of mirrors. Must be original ford and excellent condition, I appreciate these are old parts now. The ebay copies are textured black plastic and the Magnum Panels chrome ones have thicker bodies, so neither option any good. Thanks Chris

    Newbie from Norfolk

    I put 13'' KN minators (minilites) on my last narrow body car, they looked great and are well made. Perhaps you could find an old set of Ford RS (mk2 escort/capri) wheels. I have just done this on my 95 wide body and got them powder coated in silver. They look great too. Both options will give you that older look.

    Keihin carbs

    Hi Chris, many thanks for the above, as the wire is for a TPS, does this mean the ecu doesn't need this sensor or the ecu is getting the information from somewhere else? My last two westys had crossflows with twin webers.....l guess if the end of the wire is not connected, l might as well just remove it?

    Keihin carbs

    I have been tidying up the engine bay on my 'new' westy and don't know much about these Keihin CVR carbs. The car is fitted with a 2.0 black top zetec engine. Apparently they are bike carbs. What's the advantage over normal carbs? On one end there is a electric cable connection, but this wire is cut off further back so does nothing. Any info would be most welcome, cheers Chris

    Rear Wishbones

    Thanks for the quick reply. l have spoken with Dennis again, and yes you are right and I was mistaken, they do use a bush, but of their own making. Their steel collar for the bush is made from a solid piece of steel so no weld seam on the inside like a westfield collar. Dennis has been very helpful. The outward lower bush is replaced for a rose joint, so 2 x rose joints to connect to lower part of the upright. Looks like I will be ordering from Siltech

    Rear Wishbones

    Hi, I have been talking to Dennis at Siltech Racing regarding making some old spec(shorter) rear wishbones for my 95 seiw road car. However their wishbones do not have the steel collars to accept the bushes, where the arms mount to the chassis. They use a solid steel bar with a hole in it to accept the fixing bolt. So there is no give or flexing possible at the mounting. I guess this makes ride similar to poly bushes and much firmer. Has anyone experience of their products or this design? cheers Chris

    polo radiator

    I have recently bought a 1995 seiw with low line bodywork and the previous owner fitted a new polo radiator. The top corners of the radiator were putting pressure on the inside of the nose cone. I have slanted the radiator as much as I can and made some new fixing brackets to lower it. Has anyone else had the same problem with low line bodywork/nose cones? From what l can see online there are no issues with high line nose cones. Any help or photos of solutions would be appreciated, cheers Chris
