    Charge cooler radiator ideas

    Just purely for comparison sake. The coolex version

    Mazda SDV, Build Number 3

    I've asked before but has anyone experimented with the clutch master? The original is as above 0.625 as is the slave. Is it the norm to match the 2 the same? I've got an 0.7 one that I'm going to try first up unless someone has tried something with better results?

    How many times I heard that too! Along with "the ground clearance is fine on the factory car with the standard sump" I just don't see a reason for speccing a more dense restrictive core? Were they thinking more fins = more cooling without considering airflow? Mark walker would be the one to talk to as suspect any design changes would have come from him.

    FW Special Build Thread by Complete Novices

    Nylocks are fine 99% of the time (providing they are tightened) and of course only used once. I just like belt and braces

    FW Special Build Thread by Complete Novices

    I work in an industry where it's commonplace for torque marking so do it as a habit. But. I do it mainly to indicate where I'm up to on a build spread over many months. I only mark once I've heard the click on the torque wrench. I'm also a fan of mechanical locking (again through work) I wire lock or split pin where I can especially on driveline bits where vibration is highest. Mr IVA inspector also likes it.

    Weight loss diet.

    out of interest what's the actual weight difference in shocks steel vs ally?

    No not on mine I used a coolex. Issues with the st are with the ecu fan switching on too low and too high a thermostat. Interesting to see such differences. Yours looks very restrictive to airflow indeed.

    Willwood brake cylinder

    Yes as above the cylinder is pretty much standard so should be fine. If the cheaper end of the wilwood own brand pads have been fitted then they are a bit naff. Can recommend mintex 1144 but they are a bit noisy. The other question is do you know which wilwoods are fitted? If ones with incorrect piston sizes are fitted it could display the same symptoms you describe.

    Think @Dave Eastwood (Gadgetman) - Club Secretary is a stake holder in dinitrol he says after ordering another 2 cans off eBay.......

    Willwood brake cylinder

    If it's the donor st170 master cylinder that will be the issue. It will be too large a bore as it's designed to work with servo assistance. No amount of changing pads will make much difference. It feels like your stepping on a block of wood with no feel? Can you post a pic up of the master cylinder? As most westies I've seen are using the tandem ap/girling units.

    Very stupid question about MPG .....

    Get yourself an ecoboost if economy is a priority. I could easily get over 40mpg on a steady run

    Fitting engine on build stands

    I should have said my build stands were built rather more heavy duty than the westfield items

    Fitting engine on build stands

    I fitted my engine up on the stands makes access a breeze. And also makes body fitting easier. When ready to lower used the engine crane at front 3 blokes at the rear and the Mrs whipped out the stands.
