  1. This car has had an interesting past, it was originally registered in 1989 and we believe ran for around 2 years when oil surge caused engine failure of the originally installed crossflow. At that point the owner pushed it into the garage and left it there for many years, until another one of our members purchased it a few years ago as a project. The car was stripped down completely including body removal, suspension engine and gearbox, a lowered floor was fitted and it is at this point we purchased the car as a rolling chassis, without an engine back in July last year. Our plan was to rebuild the car for my daughter, not to sell it on again, however her plans have changed and my wife says that I can’t keep both Westfield’s as well as the Porsche. Bollockybill and myself have rebuilt the car to what we consider a good standard, replacing or reconditioning many of the original parts, as said earlier our plan was not to resell the car. The first run out was planned to be Stoneleigh so we had a deadline to meet, the car passed its MOT and was taxed for the first time in 24 years on 23 April. Driving the 200 or so miles to and from Stoneleigh was maybe a brave thing to do for a first run out, but we had a great day without any issues. So to the spec… Westfield SEi Narrow with low-line body, mileage 1600 miles in 28 years Lowered floor on drivers side Bodywork in very good condition given it age, no fading Ford 1600 CVH engine on twin 40 Weber DCOE’s Engine has only covered 3000 miles since complete rebuild Purchased from another member, power reported as 120BHP Weber’s have been rebuilt, new springs seals etc. Fully Independent rear suspension with Westfield Diff (open) Ford Type “E” fours speed gearbox Clutch done less 3000miles fitted with new release bearing All Wishbones have been re-powder coated with new Metalastic bushes Alternator and Starter Motor covered only 1000 miles from new All brakes renewed including calipers,rear cylinders, disks and drums Master Cylinder refurbed by Past Parts New Front wheel bearings Alloy front hubs Racing type seats with 4 point Willans Harnesses RAC Roll Bar, the rear tubes not show in photos (waiting for my Dremel to come home) Looking for offers in the region of £6400
  2. FOR SALE Westfield stainless exhaust manifold CVH £65 Westfield stainless exhaust with cover CVH £65 SOLD 1600 CVH engine with about 12,000 miles. All standard internals. £80 All parts originally bought from Westfield as part of modular kit. Collection only.
  3. CVH will it fit?

    Well actually no it didn't One of the biggest challenges when trying to fit the CVH engine into our project car was, would the bonnet go on afterwards. Obviously we spent hours meticulously measuring and comparing the position of the engine in the chassis with my other car "Marilyn", before the body was reunited with the rest of the car, only to find out we were about 20mm high right at the front of the engine. To cut a long and stressful story short, because we didn't want a power bulge in the bonnet, a company called Fibet came to our rescue. They manufacture Isolation Mounts in all shapes sizes and specs for automotive as well as industrial use . I contacted them via their website explained the issue and what we were trying to do. To my surprise they responded almost immediately explained that the item we needed was out of stock, but they would be doing a production run in the next two weeks. True to their word two weeks later I get a package in the post with the new engine mounts supplied completely free of charge including p&p... Fantastic!!! Who said customer service was dead, it's alive and very well at www.fibet.co.uk for sure After getting home from Stoneleigh on Sunday parked the two cars in the drive next to each other for the first time. Now it's easy to see why we had so much trouble when you compare the project car to Marilyn in the background. All worked out well in the end.... anybody looking for a nice 1989 SEi only covered 1600 miles from new G.
  4. Here is the thread for anyone that missed it - we're doing OK towards preparing for Stoneleigh, but need help with some specific parts please that must be gathering dust somewhere: Duratec crank sensor and connector Duratec crank sensor plastic alignment tool ECU coolant temp sensor ECU air temp sensor @Nic (NICO) - Shropshire and Mid-Wales AO CVH crank pulley (for trigger wheel attachment) @syman84 Ford 4 tower ignition coil Gen2 @Chris King - Webmaster and Joint North East AO and bracket any trigger wheel brackets/ unused kit Spark plug leads suitable for 4 tower coil to CVH plugs (Ford Ka)
  5. ...considering selling my lovely classic narrow CVH powered Westfield SEi. .... ...and buying a different one. I've had The Wench for 16 years now and loved her to bits, but the time has come for something a bit newer and with a newer engine, an injected Zetec or Duratec (sorry, no BEC, MX-5 engine or V8). As much as I love my girl, and also the thought of sticking a new engine into her and giving her a change of heart, the cold hard logic is that it's better to buy a correctly spec'd car that matches my needs now, and find a new home for my girl, someone who needs a very good, sorted entry level Westfield that they can just get in and drive. Frankly, it's breaking my heart to type this, but I know it makes sense. I'm patient enough to sell her and wait for the right replacement that doesn't require me pouring money into, just get in and thrash it. One element that might affect my timing is the fact that my old girl will have passed her IVA 25 years ago on 1st December, which could make it more attractive to buyers on the Continent. Above all, I want my baby to go to a proper, loving home and carry on bringing happiness to her new owner. Luckily, I'm a patient sort of chap and not in a desperate hurry, but that's what I'm considering this year. Call me an idiot or call me sensible, but there we are. Feel free to snipe and abuse below. Feel even freer to contact me if you want more info before I put up a For Sale ad at some point.
  6. Well , the Westie has just about reached the point where she will be ready for next Monday's MOT . The Detroit 1.9L CVH is in place, high capacity fuel pump installed, new exhaust fitted, missing clutch bushing replaced, a host of electrical upgrades completed, replacement seats and new thermostatic switch together with inline sensor installed etc.... BUT, started engine, which sounds beautiful, idles well, and on a short test drive, behaved very well indeed. A tribute to former owner Tricky's skill and ingenuity. However, somewhere in the region of the bell housing , there is a rasping clattering noise that is very evident at low revs. This makes me nervous ! I am at a loss to diagnose and fix the problem, and it doesn't seem a good idea to drive it any further until this issue is resolved . HELP! On the plus side, The cutch engages normally, and all gears are easily selected both when car stationary and when moving. The engine idles easily and starts easily. I will check to see if there is a change in the noise when clutch is depressed tomorrow in case the clutch lever has become dislodged during engine swap. I looked underneath and could not see any scarfe or bright metal where the bell housing is open and the bottom of the flywheel can be seen. Could it be something catching on the flywheel or clutch cover, if so what? How about release bearing? Could it be the starter motor not disengaging fully(doubt this since it starts engine easily and would make a very noise if at fault I would think.)? Any help, advice etc most welcome. I really, really don't want to take engine out again, but may have to I suppose. (Not a prospect I relish in my 60's and with colder weather soon.)
