    Hi Geoffery. No, not local, but it's gone to a very good home, up in the north east. From my memory of forum questions and answers, there are quite a few experts up there, so he should be able to get some great first hand advice on the way forward with his new car.

    Non-standard Westfield Steering Arms?

    Thanks also Thrusty! Yes, the non RS2000 ones are what I need. Mystery over - ah, the joys of kit car ownership!

    Non-standard Westfield Steering Arms?

    Gotcha Dave! Thanks a lot. I bought all the joints from Rally Design and it was the RS2000 ones that came up. Just did a bit more digging, following your reply, and you are, as ever, quite correct! Found them instock at Burton Engineering. Thanks again Dave.

    Non-standard Westfield Steering Arms?

    Just fitted new bottom joints and drag links, after the bottom joint rubber boots were condemned by the MOT tester. I also bought new ( Escort RS2000 ) track rod ends, but these could not be fitted, as the tapered holes in the steering arms were too big. Luckilly, the existing track rod ends and rubber boots are still OK, but I am concerned that the RS2000 tre's should fit. Are my steering arms, for Westfield uprights, non standard! The tre's have a part number on them, 010928, which Googles to a Quinton Hazel tre. This item does not appear to be anything like as easy to obtain as the Escort joint is. Any ideas? I would like to get to a "standard" set up, if possible, but Westfield Cars don't seem to carry steering arms in stock atm. Has anyone got any standard arms, for Westfield alloy uprights, for sale?

    Christmas run to the coast

    Thanks again Robin, for a great day. Next time I will ensure all day attendance! 'Nuf said in the video. I am, of course, suitably embarassed, but also in very good company!

    #Scarbygate - Does the rest of the video exist, or has it been irretrievably erased? As Geoffrey said, Great write up Robin. ( What price have you put on "that" video? )

    Christmas run to the coast

    I was looking forward to the climax of that video, Robin, right up to the point where it ended! The other paticipants will know what I mean! That's me in front of Robin, wondering where we are going.

    Christmas run to the coast

    Yes, brilliant day, even though I only made the afternoon! One Westy causes a stir, but 6 or 7 together was awseome. Good to meet all you guys.

    Christmas run to the coast

    Hoping to pick you all up at Fridaythorpe, on the A156. Reckon you should pass through around 11:15 to 11:30. If I'm not there, either I couldn't make it, or I'll be at the chippy in Filey. Hope it's as good a day as is forecast. (No roof!)

    Switch identification decals

    Ring the parts dept at Westfield and ask them about the postage charge on them. They don't always charge what it says on the web page. Your next problem though is whether they are in stock!

    Fw fuel tank, fuel starvation

    I hate saying this, but do a search. There is loads on here about swirl pot systems. Basically it puts a small tank in your fuel line, fed by a low pressure pump, to prevent fuel starvation when the fuel in the tank is pulled away from the pickup.

    Exhaust popping on throttle lift off - twin 40 DCOE's

    Agree with most of the answers here. Whether or not you like the over run noise is, of course, up to you. It is a characteristic common to many competition cars and bikes that are tuned for ultimate power and throttle response. Run of the mill modern cars don't do it, as said above, because fuelling can be minutely controlled right across the whole rev range, but some over run pop-bang is actually engineered into some current sports oriented cars, just to add to the experience. Our 2Ltr Zetec, running on throttle bodies, does it beautifully. Feathering the throttle, you can generate quite a racket. Magic! As said, if the plugs are a nice colour and the car is, otherwise, running as you would expect, leave it be and learn to love!
