    New header tank

    Not Ford, but have seen this posted before. Maybe an option? Not tried it myself but for that money maybe worth a punt? https://www.autopartspro.co.uk/metzger-1813894

    Zetec running hotter

    Just sent my rad to coolex, along with fan so they can weld on some fan mounts amongst some other mods. Agree with @jonjh1964, the Westfield supplied fan mount pushes the fan too far off the rad! Andy

    gear lever

    Hi Mark, This is the quick shift I bought... http://www.mattlewisracing.co.uk/product.php/976/16/mlr_5_speed_type_9_gearbox_rose_jointed_quickshift_gear_lever The bends were done by careful local heating with Oxy acetylene and then bend in vice. Be careful as the foot that goes into the selector on the gearbox fits one way! I drew up a template to check the position, viewed across the car, if that makes sense. Then I could check the bend angle. Don’t do two 90degree bends, as when in 2nd or 4th the stick needs to clear the tunnel top plate! Hope that helps Andy

    If it’s just you and me Dave, we probably could do a run! Not many responses :-(

    gear lever

    I found putting 2 bends in so the gear knob remains vertical rather than at a 45 deg angle. With 2 bends no cutttig down was required. Net result, approx 90mm rearward shift in gear stick vertical axis. Andy

    Zetex Omex throttle bodies install

    A base start up map is just that, a means to check the tb’s work. You may find someone on here with similar setup to you, who can share a map. I highly recommend getting a RR session booked with a reputable RR. I last used Northampton Motorsport, Troy knows his stuff, my Westie starts and runs extremely well. If he’s local, money well spent. (I had a two hour run to trailer mine) Andy ps mine is Duratec on fast road cams so not your setup

    Creaky steering rack

    Would be worth discounting the steering shaft, maybe worth disconnecting at rack and check for creak / free movement. if all is good, then I would suspect track rod ends. I just can’t see how a rack could squeak! rack mounts all good?

    Recent snap of your Westfield

    Another one taken at Le Mans camp.... and when we were at hotel prior to Normandy beaches run awesome road trip!

    Creaky steering rack

    Agree! Does the ‘creak’ show itself when suspension is worked only, no steering input? suspect track joints or metalastic suspension bushes.

    Tracsport gear kit (spc)

    @Scottc88 Huge positive improvement. Similar spec Duratec, SPC type 9 and 3.92 LSD. obviously more noisy 1,2 &3 gears but no-where near a straight cut. Gearbox not as leak tight as the MCT box it replaces, but the punchy acceleration, pulling cleanly all the way is a world apart. Prior to SPC I tried 3.62 LSD, power was 180ish too. Found it did bog down till revs 2500ish. No problem now! Drop me a pm if you want a chat Andy

    Duratec overheating.

    Whilst i know it ran cool prior to engine out, just check the circuit, as the SBD... http://www.sbdev.co.uk/Info_sheets/Cooling_systems/Duratec Cooling System with heater.pdf The std westfield coolant circuit is poor and most modify to SBD guide. The smaller bore off the thermostat housing, should return to heater pipe, not to lower hose. I made this change and the engine temp now solid at 80 deg C, rising in standing traffic to fan cut in at 95 degC (fan is ECU controlled)
