    1999 SEiW 1800 Q Zetec - Rebuild & Update

    Haven’t updated for a while (too busy enjoying the car!) but I’ve now stripped the engine fully and because of the condition I’m just going to clean it all up, check the clearances and then rebuild with a gasket set and of ARP rod bolts (which are en-route with my cousin from the states). With the shocking weather I also spent some time painting the front suspension as it had a little surface rust that was bothering me so that all looks much neater now. And finally fitted the dominators I pickup up recently from @WINGNUT 👍🏻, I wasn’t sure I liked them at first, but now they’ve been on a week or so I’m going to keep them on (626g weight saving😁).

    Just disable the vtec, you'll be fine. Was your last visit not a 98 day?

    Good to hear your sump swap has been successful. One less worry when you're out enjoying your car.

    Yeah, I was hoping for those figures but you never know. Ben from BHP also said his dyno is a bit of a heart breaker, but said it was pretty accurate when comparing it on engines that have been bench tested.

    Wheel bearing on the way out?

    Thanks both. So the noise also appeared when in straight lines, and I didn't particularly notice it any louder going (at road speeds) round corners. So maybe it's not even the bearing Luke, you're right, theres a metalistic bush that has worked it's way in the sleeve up to the hub. And yep, there's a washer on the end with the nut, it has just gone in the sleeve a bit. 🙄
  10. I’m in in if we are out out😂🤪😜🍺🍺

    From MSV's website: Please pay special attention to the noise limit. The standard 98db 'drive-by' limit operates throughout the day. This is not comparable to the 92db drive by limits at other venues. Cars close to the typical 105db static limit will likely fail and not be able to continue My car typically blows 101db on static tests, although last time out it was 97db, so if you can get your static around those levels you should be OK?

    If my shockingly bad memory serves me right, they have a metalastic bush inside of those and it looks to me like that's pushing up against the upright and I'd have expected a washer to be by the nut so wondering if that's disappeared into the sleeve! Not necessarily the cause to the issue but something to look at
  22. I know it’s early but to get a table one must book early. We are going to Turtle Bay in Chelmsford 8:00pm. As 15 went last year I’ve booked a table for 15 again, should be able to increase the number subject to seating space by the restaurant. Put your name down below and Do Not rely on me seeing a post on our What’s app chat thingymedo. https://www.turtlebay.co.uk/ We will of course meet up at a nearby pub to get preloaded 🍺🍸exept Ken Paton who will probably be pre loaded before he arrives at the pub. Anyone local to Chelmsford is welcome to attend especially if you do not come to our usual events. Please, please do not put your name down and not come on the night, it won’t be fair on the people that wanted to come but can’t because the restaurant is full.

    Painted wiper blades RIGHT final test time. While doing all this final work I had up-dated the AIM Spada dash firmware and while out on my shake-down run noticed I had no speed display, and in fact one of then showed -20 – b******* So back to the garage and re-did all the dash setup, even starting with a completely fresh config with a single display – still not good. Disaster with my taxi job up on Friday. Went over everything I could think of, expansion unit serial number OK, and it could read the number itself, but stubbornly refused to show speed as zero. Finally, car jacked up at the front so I could spin the front RH wheel, no go, b*******. So, in my mind the expansion unit was connected, I had it read the SN and had working oil pressure, so my attention turned to the wheel sensor. Easiest to move the plug from CH1 to CH2 and re-program, and b******* me it worked. Last good config re-loaded and all the settings for the speed sensor moved from CH1 to CH2 and after a test run all working again. Will spin off an eMail to Mark/Ian and see what they say, but I’ve a horrid feeling its going to be a “well it’s out of warranty” reply, so let’s wait and see. Just to finish this was the flexible LED strip again from China i used in the nose cone.(sorry upside down) And this is the aluminium ones fixed to the lower wishbones
