    Want to buy

    Having sold my narrow xe a couple of months ago I am now looking for a Westy to take its place. My criterior is for a well built car with as much spec as I can get for my money. I really fancy trying a BEC but would consider another XE or Zetec assuming it had a decent amount of power. The quicker and lighter better..............My buget is around 9k but I would rather spend less.............. So what you got guys I've got the cash waiting to spend! Please PM or email timcu11en@yahoo.co.uk

  13. Readvertised as the chap that agreed to buy it couldn't get it up his driveway!
  14. What amount did you buy? And did you spray it after fitting? How are the temps now?
  15. Tony The engine isn't highly tuned @ 198bhp it does have an SBD low exit exhaust and the alternator does have its own fan. Mr Blatman The alternator is quite compact maybe not as compact as a Nippon Charade one though however I am loathed to change having just bought another new one! Basically my XE engine was fitted this year by Northampton Motorsport (and a brill job they did too!) At the same time they fitted a new alternator. It has run without fault since but last month to cover up the hole left by the previous exhaust system I fitted an aluminium cover onto the bodywork. 100 miles later on a hot day the alternator stopped charging! An auto electrician friend looked at the car and confirmed the alternator had failed, he said that it was drawing in hot air from the exhaust and the probable cause of its demise.......... So if exhaust wrap is the answer should I wrap all primaries? And any recommendations the of the best to buy? Cheers Tim
  16. Hi Guys I have a slight problem with my narrow xe. I have just had to replace a nearly new alternator and I am sure the reason it failed is because it is very close (2" approx) from the very hot exhaust mainfold. What is the best way to prevent this happening again, exhaust wrap or some sort of heatshield? If I used wrap would I have to wrap to entire manifold, can't be a good idea to wrap just one primary? If I went the heatshield route I assume it would have to be mounted to the chassis and not to the engine, would aluminium be ok to use? Anyone got any pics? Cheers Tim
