    Too tall a thermostat housing on a xflow

    I've had the same issue with my oil cap when I swapped Xflow to Zetec. I put the nose cone on two 5mm thick alu strips, which in turn raises the bonnet just enough where it matters. You can't see the alu strips with the nose cone fitted.

    The half shaft hubs are 'staggered' in circumference. So if they are 50mm wide (I do not know the exact dimensions), the 1st 40mm is the same diameter as the wheels, but the last 10mm is slightly bigger in diameter. So if I can machine the last 10mm to be the same diameter, my wheels will fit all the way against the hub flange, without having to resort to using a spacer. As it is this spacer (or rather the new ET on the new wheels) that prevent them from fitting in the arches.

    November 2nd, 2018 Spend: £0.00 Oooh, it's fresh today... November 29th, 2018 Spend: £0.00 Realistically, I'm not seeing the weather being nice enough to drive the car to work and back without getting p*ssed on, so I SORNed it today. I need to get the half-shafts machined so my new wheels fit, and I need to take the petrol tank out to re-fit the pump so it reads on the gauge again. Plenty to do this winter!

    3D printing (plastics)

    I've used https://www.3dhubs.com for 3D printing of some keyboard feet (the flip out ones to raise the keyboard). A pair was £5 (incl £3 postage), and I had it in less than a week. You can pick the material and supply your own file. Quality was good and a year later still holds the keyboard up.

    Winter wear

    I use waterproof+windproof snowboarding gear over my normal clothes. Layers is the key to keeping warm though. Motorcycle gloves are also good, but very stiff.

    Christmas Karting - Interest?

    Do they do an XXL kart? Last time I went in one I suffered from bruises on my thighs for weeks after I'm sure I'll get some interest from the Northants area if I ask them nicely?

    No garage will be able to assess that better than Westfield themselves. Unlike the BMW, your car is "bespoke"...

    Porcelain sealant needed, any ideas?

    It's really good, but I've just re-read the product information and it's for external use only. But my first thought would still be to seal it from the inside rather than the outside. Just got to find a product suitable for it

    Fernox LSX on the inside an option?

    Camshaft issues - Zetec (solved!!!)

    Top schematic is wrong. The output from the thermostat housing (the left one on the thermostat housing) should not go into the top radiator connection, but as close to the waterpump at the bottom as you can get it. That "route" is used for when the engine is cold to speed up the warming of the engine. By plumbing it in as above, you will suffer from the so called "overcooling zetec issue".

    Property boundaries ?

    If you find one, let me know. I think this is one of those things that should be public domain, but yet it isn't...

    What have I done now..... V6 seiw build

    If you wanted a little more breathing room for the oil cap, you can raise the nose cone ever so slightly, and as a result, the bonnet will also raise a little at the front. The gap (if any) can be taken up by sponge foam... I've had to do this when I went from Xflow to Zetec. Progress is looking good!
