    Headlight Adjustment

    Afternoon folks, Annoyingly, one of my headlights has worked its way loose and slowly rotates inwards whilst driving along! I have FW bodywork with spats fitted which makes access to the nut nigh on impossible! I'm guessing the only real way to tighten this up is to put a slot in a box spanner but wondering if anyone had other solutions. Thanks Bob

    Silverstone Classic 2019

    Quick question re the parade lap. Is there any indication at this stage as to what day it will be on? I can only make one day of the weekend but at this stage i can still pick and choose! Would love to be there to take part in it! Cheers Bob

    Zetec starter motor - the bolts...

    Have you tried some penetrating oil? Give each one a good soaking (be careful with overspray and avoid / mask anything you don't want covered) and leave for a while. Then apply some of the suggestions above. I generally use PlusGas, but WD40 would do. Good luck.

    fibreglass polishing

    After completing some gelcoat repairs and sanding out with progressively finer grits of sandpaper (up to 2000), I used Farecla G3 Regular paste and one of the small soft wool mops on a dremel. Granted they were small areas, but on a slow speed setting and taking it easy, I got a good surface finish. I finished off with Autoglym Super Resin Polish.

    Is this a Water Temperature Sender wiring for a Blacktop?

    As above. I have a 2.0 Zetec Blacktop. The temp sender in the head (as per your picture) connects via the Westfield loom to my Omex 600 ECU. In the base of the thermostat housing I have a VDO temp sender, which connects to a Dash 2 and provides water temp reading.

    Exhaust Wrap recomendations

    Exhaust Wrap recomendations

    I looked at wrapping my exhaust manifold due to proximity to the starter motor and some less than ideal starter performance when the engine was hot. However, I was put off after reading this thread originally posted by TableLeg: It doesn't really suggest that it shortens the life of the manifold, however if it makes a mess of the surface of the steel I didn't really want to take that risk. I'm now considering Camcoat (http://www.camcoat.com/main/coatings2.html) or the cheaper option of a rigid heat-shield bolted to the starter motor. Bob

    Whats yours called and why!

    One of my favourite places and also the location of my favourite whiskey is the western Isles of Scotland and more specifically one very small island famed for its Peaty whiskey. Therefore being a Westy, “Islay” seemed to fit the bill!

    Break down cover

    I went with A-Plan's cover (provided by AXA under a specialist breakdown policy). Includes roadside / recovery / and European trip. Couldn't find anything cheaper with the same benefits. As yet I haven't had to use it, so cant comment on how it actually works! If you PM me your email address I can send you the policy summary. Rob
