    Sport 250 Selby Build Bucks

    Didn’t rivet my panels in until after I fitted the pedals.

    FW special edition 2017 new build from a new member

    Totally agree with Dave no way I’d rivet it in! You can use rivnuts if you really feel the need - but I used the rubber motorcycle fairing/screen fasteners.

    That’s what I did for IVA

    Interior / exterior projections

    As has been said, Westfield’s are designed to pass especially if you fit the factory IVA kit and follow other build threads. Also, simply take some rubber edging, superglue, silicone and a small file with you on the day and the tester will allow you to cover/adjust any bits you may have missed (assuming you don’t fail on a biggie like emissions) My car passed first time and never went near anything spherical before IVA

    Hello and welcome. I’ve moved this thread from the membership help and info section because that section is purely for membership help and info.

    Geo set up - what to look for

    Personally I disconnect my ARBs on the road and only use them on track - as the ride is pretty harsh and tiring on roads compared to no ARBs where the car feels really comfy and yet handles fine. Sorry it doesn’t answer the question - but worth asking the geo expert their opinion as to the benefits on a pure road car?

    I thought they just supplied it vented to atmosphere not blanked off?

    Uncut bonnet here if you need one. Will need painting to match but then again so will yours if you repair it.

    SE FW ZETEC - New member/New build

    I’ve heard this too and one reason I’m not worried about the pcv valve itself. But the op seemed to suggest refitting the OEM parts and then blanking “them” off, suggesting that all breathers were blanked? Maybe just me misreading the post.
  21. Chris King - Webmaster and Joint North East AO

    SE FW ZETEC - New member/New build

    No it is not blanked off - it is designed to let the crankcase breathe. What “blanks” are you referring to? no breathing = pressure = blown seals

    After Fuel tank for my Westfield SEIW - Zetec

    Is it FW or the (standard) ZK body as the tanks are different. Also injection or carb as again they are different Low pressure (carb) pump or high pressure injection one? Always helps to provide as much info as possible
  23. Chris King - Webmaster and Joint North East AO

    SE FW ZETEC - New member/New build

    Not quite correct (wrt a Zetec) As it requires a vacuum to act as a valve it actually allows air to flow both ways if not connected to an inlet plenum. I vent mine to the same catch/breather can as the cam breather. Many remove the valve as they believe it stops the crank breathing unless a plenum vacuum is used. Search for PCV Valve on here for more discussions including the possible problems a blanking plate may cause.
