    Fuel pump relay.

    All the connections are there it’s just in the wrong place and needs a relay adding. Nothing hard it’s just a step backwards, oh well.

    Fuel pump relay.

    Custom made Omex loom which was a kit of bits and WF chassis loom.

    Fuel pump relay.

    I though so too. This is why I missed it and its only now I'm looking at making the final wiring connections did i notice the fuel pump wire in the engine bay. It's going to be a pig to reroute it back under the scuttle.

    Fuel pump relay.

    Just had a look on the Omex web site and yes it should have a relay. I thought it would but I assumed it would have been either on the WF loom or with the ECU but it's neither. Not a problem, time to do a bit of wiring.

    Fuel pump relay.

    That would all make sense. I bought the ECU separate so it comes with a load of loose wires and two are the dash and the fuel pump. I assume that I will have to fit a relay.

    Fuel pump relay.

    I am using a WF loom for a Mazda SDV build rather than using the original loom. I have added in the zetec engine section as well to run the starter alternator etc. The problem I have is that I do not have a fuel pump relay for the ECU to control but I do have a plug on the zetec portion of the loom that has the Green/white stripe cable on it that goes nowhere on my installation. I assume that I need a relay and that I need to wire this plug to it or am i missing something? I would have thought the zetec would have had a relay as well? I cannot find any reference to the white/black stripe wire either.

    Mazda SDV, Build Number 3

    Thanks Dommo. Thats a lot of adjustment used up on the handbrake cable.

    Good point. That would gain me a bit, every little helps. I’m unsure about shortening the lever as it might look a bit odd.

    Milestone day.......Its on the deck. the front arches will need a bit of persuading as they rub the tyres a bit but this should not be an issue. Oh, second minestrone of the day........the engine goes in. Loads of room and I even did this one on my own. The lump will have to come back out as I need to grind off a lump of gearbox. A few questions for the Mazda massive. Is this enough room for the clutch arm? It has about 30mm of movement. I already know the answer to this one but for the record the nearside engine mount ill need re drilling. My gear lever when in second gear is awfully close to the handbrake lever. does this become a burden so should I shorten/bend the lever now? And lastly, the reverse switch on the gearbox is just touching the panel. I know it has about 2mm of dynamatting on it but I don't fancy moving the gearbox away from it otherwise it makes the prop an even worse fit. Apologies for the photos but I use a wide angle lense and its a b******* to get the depth of field correct. Well it is for me.

    Cv joint orientation

    I thought they went as they are in the bottom picture. Thinking about it I don’t suppose it matters due to the way they are designed and function unless I’m missing something.

    Toyo T1R's

    Thanks for all the feedback. Ive just ordered a set of Toyo R1r’s from Luke at Playskool. They are 195 wide but that will suffice and they will fit under the front arches easier.

    Toyo T1R's

    Toyo T1R's Are they any good for a road going Wessie? I know they can squeal a bit but They will be going on a predominantly road going car.
