  1. As in title never fitted brought from another member just want my money back. £50
  2. 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
  3. Bonnet measurement help please

    Could some kind owner please confirm the rear width of the narrow-bodied bonnet please? For completeness, it would be helpful to find out the difference in measurement between the narrow and wide-body bonnets too. Thanks. R
  4. Spot the Difference – Bodywork

    How to tell the difference between a Narrow Body and a Wide Body If you don’t have a tape measure to hand then the two most visual differences between a narrow and wide body car are around the rear lights and also the shoulder panel next to the seat. Starting with the shoulder panel, a narrow car will have a flat, vertical internal panel next to your shoulder. On a wide body car the GRP tub is extended into the cockpit to create a scalloped or chamfered panel to give more shoulder room. These first two pictures show an example of the shoulder panel on a narrow bodied car. Whilst on a Wide body car, the first of these pictures shows the chamfered tub used with ZK bodywork, whist the second shows the scallop of the earlier “kit” wide bodywork. The second method of telling the difference between a wide an narrow is the shape of the bdy tub around the rear lights. The wide body chassis was available with either fixed or detachable rear arches; whist the narrow was only available with fixed rear aches. Therefore if the car has detachable arches, which can be seen with a join line between the tub and arch as in the picture below then it will be a wide body car. If the car has fixed arches then it could be either a wide or a narrow. These first two pictures show examples of wide body Westfield’s. Note how the rear lights are partially recessed into the tub on their inside edge in a square recess. On a narrow however the arches are slightly wider and the arch has a smooth contour into the main body with no recess for the lamp. Note: I am aware that there is also some wide body tubs they may have rear arches similar to the narrow and therefore it is wise to also check the shape of the shoulder panel also to help with identification.
  5. I have a beautiful (biased much) 1988 SEi. One thing that has bugged me for a while is that the seats are just a block sponge with a bit of cloth wrapped round them. I'd love to put in some original seats in her, as she looks more like a classic than a performance Westie. Preferbly not a bright colour if I was to be picky. My interior is gray so gray/black seats would be ideal. Also with out any kind of headrest. Cheers all.
  6. Clutch footrest on a SE Narrow

    Could anyone please advise on how it might be possible to fabricate a footrest for the clutch foot in a SE Narrow footwell? It has got pendant pedals and short of tucking your foot under the clutch pedal its just so uncomfortable holding your foot & leg in the air. Any ideas welcome. Thanks very much

  8. Twin 40's in a SE Narrow?

    I have a SE Narrow with a Pinto 2.0L on a single Weber DGAV 32/36 and want to upgrade to twin 40 side draught Webers. I think I will need the shortest possible 1.15" manifold and maybe MISAB plates instead of O rings. BUT will it all fit or will the front ram pipe foul the top chassis rail. Also what linkage will work in such a confined space please? Will I need an uprated fuel pump? Any information or guidance would be very much appreciated. IB.
  9. As my Narrow car is now up for sale I have a Brand new, uncut, never used and still in it's delivery packaging Carbonmods dashboard for a narrow body. This cost me £125 new from Carbonmods this time last year and was one of the last before they stopped making them and has sat on top of my wardrobe for the last year in it's delivery packaging so this really is as new. Your's for £100 (no offers) + £10p&p Mark PM or email me at wsccessex@btinternet.com
