OkDoky team, looking for a sanity check here. Have the front of the Sport 250 off ATM, as I'm in the process of trying to improve the air-flow, moving the battery etc, as well as a host of other things, and still have the subject of what engin Antifreeze/coolant to use on the re-build. Spoken to a few people on various web and buliten boards, mainly on the Ford Focus ST car, as it's what my engine would have ended up in, and not really had much feedback, so turned to Google, which kept pointing toward Motocraft Orage being recomended. So after a bit a bit more searching, I found this: - https://www.fcsdchemicalsandlubricants.com/Main/quickref/coolantsEN.pdf as a guide from Motorcraft. coolantsEN.pdf Years b4 2018, FOCUS marked. This is the chard guide for the right colour coolant to use. You can see I found the cloest model, which would say I need the ORANGE coolant type. Now my kit came with generic BLUE antifreeze, and TBH I'm really not sure what is the right way to go. When I spoke to Dave Gemzeo about this he suggested that about 5% mixture on Antifreeze/coolant would be fine, given we don't generally go out on the snow, which kind of backed up what i was running b4 I started on the work, and I had bought a dip-tester thing which un-helpfully works in DegC of protection. So my thinking is that I'd go for the ""O = Orange-colored engine coolant approved to Ford specification WSS-M97B44-D or WSS-M97B44-D2 (Motorcraft® Orange Antifreeze/Coolant)" as the base coolant so I have some engine protection or cleaning, and then p*** arouind with the mixture using deionised water to produse a mix in my setup of around 10 to 20% if i can get the stupid dose meter thing to convert DevC protected to % So what I'm after really is do the pannel think I'm nutz or is this a sensiable path? I don't think you can actually use any car manufacture's guide, as we have a different range of bits in our cars, like pipes and radiators, so it can only be a bit of a guess.
After 3 years of fun, I am looking at moving into Tin Top racing so my Westfield is going up for sale. It's a fantastic car, and is the perfect road / occasional track day car in its current spec and could be taken either way to make an out and out track car, or an even better road car. So the car: Westfield SEiW registered on 1998 on an R plate, wide body with V8 ducted nose cone and vented bonnet. 2.0 Vauxhall XE Red Top with oil pump, hydraulic tappets, plugs and a Varley red top 30 battery fitted within the last few years. Fully serviced with oils and fluids over the winter, also garaged over winter. It runs on MBE Engine Management with tapered throttle bodies giving 197bhp on a rolling road.

Braided brake hoses Gaz adjustable suspension 2.4 Steering Rack 13 inch Compomotive alloys Carbon fibre effect rear arch protectors and rear lights Carbon fibre exhaust Playskool Half Cage Willians Harnesses Momo steering wheel Recently fitted with an upgraded Coolex radiator with new fan Cooling override switch (never had any overheating problems but the switch was already fitted and I upgraded the radiator for more track work) AP Racing Brake Master Cylinder (took me almost a year to get hold of one of these to fit!

Heater Full leather dash and carpets Immobiliser Hamilton car cover (with slight tear) Side doors and soft bits for sevens tonneau cover The car has been fully set up with geo and corner weights by Northampton Motorsports MOT until September 17 As you can see, it is a great spec car.
