  1. Hello all, after much debate and almost purchasing a built car this week, through fate and slight impulse whist sat in the North Sea (Working) I thought sod it, Iam 40 next year.

I work week on week off, so have the time to commit to it. My dad has one too which I love working on and my lad is an apprentice mechanic, I love all things petrol so we should hopefully be ok!! 🤞🏼 Anyway, 12 we

    Wild idle on Zetec Blacktop

    Hello collective brain, I am struggling to get this pesky westfield back on the road after my fuelling/ignition issues. I too had this fault with my 1.8 Zetec - died on track at Castle Coombe - fixed in pits then spluttered on track so binned it. ed on track so binned it. Sadly died again and had to be recovered home After checking all electrics and fuel etc etc worked again? But then failed on M5 heading to Stoneleigh.... Same thing as you with spluttering and coughing then run down. I did however find that one bolt from the
  9. After wanting to build and run a Westfield for over 20 years this past year I finally got chance to realise my dream but it is with a heavy heart I have to consider selling my freshly build Westfield. I have been offered a very nice 997 at a price I just can't resist and having known the car for sometime I cannot let this pass by if this sells. For anyone who is interested here is a link to the build thread : Build Thread All purchased new from Westfield June 2018 and the car has now covered 1000 miles with very very little in the way of teething problems. The car has completed one t
  10. Good afternoon I maybe a little bit premature but if I am honest I’m so so excited to get started on what has been a journey of around 14 years. So I visited the factory yesterday and placed an order on a new FW SE Zetec with LSD, Throttle bodies, track day dampers, brake upgrade, MSA rollbar, 8” rears, 205 tyres,sport turbo seats and I’ve also gone for the LED rear light upgrade. I have also omitted the following parts from the kit as I’d like to source alternatives elsewhere - front wings as I’d like to source proper carbon items, dashboard inc clocks and switches as I’d like a pr

    Battery Mounting Options?

    Hi guys, I’m thinking of how to mount my battery (Halfords HB038), currently the plan is to make something lightweight and secure from sheet ally - but wondering if anyone has a neat, off-the-shelf solution? Also longer term I’d like a smaller, more compact solution as 330A seem excessive for a 1.8 standard comp ST 1800 Zetec, anyone advise on a good value alternative? cheers
  12. 2.0 Silvertop Zetec rebuilt in 2004 complete with build CD and certificate of authenticity from Ford for the IVA back in the day. My Westfield was built with this engine and it has covered 19k since. Standard engine on Weber 45 DCOE 152 'G' (5 Prog hole) carburettors. Weber Alpha management. AP clutch and RWD flywheel included Setup at Northampton Motorsport with power graph showing 150bhp. Drove fantastically from the moment I bought it until the moment I’ve decided to remove it in favour of an ST170 as an upgrade.

    Throttle bodies - Gsxr K5

    Hi All. I've been given a set of Gsxr K5 throttle bodies to see if they can be made to fit my zetec engine. From what I can see so far, the spacing is 76 - 80 - 76 between the bodies but this isn't a problem as I am going to fabricate my own manifold. The thing I'm concerned about is the fuel rail doesn't have a return on it. The (very knowledgeable) chap I got them off said that modern bikes don't tend to use a return as it makes the fuel hotter and improves the emissions. Would this set up work on a Zetec? Or would I need to change the fuel rail for one with a return (if this is even p

    ECU - Now sorted.

    Hi all. Does anyone happen to have an ECU laying around gathering dust? I would like to run throttle bodies on my zetec 1800 engine, but haven't got any yet so I could potentially purchase a set to match the ecu. A loom would also be helpful if it's not too expensive. Thought I'd ask before I think about going out to buy a new one! Thanks in advance. Gary.

    Fuelling system?

    Hi all. I'm at the stage in my build where I'm starting to look at the fuelling system and it's a bit of a mare to be honest. I dumped the 1.4 cvh in favour of an 1800 blacktop which came with the injection system but no ECU. This is not going to fit for the obvious size reasons. I can't decide whether to ditch the original injection for throttle bodies and aftermarket ecu, keep the original injection and modify the steering mechanism to allow the manifold to fit whilst fitting an aftermarket ecu, or try to fit a standard ecu to the standard injection. Bike carbs won't be an option due to the

  17. Hi All, To avoid further hi-jacking Julie's raceline water rail fitting thread further, thought I'd put this into a new thread. So my car decided to deposit all its coolant on the floor the other day, and suspecting a dodgy thermostat housing I've ordered the Raceline water rail. Whilst waiting for it to arrive, decided to strip out the existing set up This looks like the sender unit for the temp gauge in the dash and looks pretty corroded/knackered, so I think this might be the cause of my leak. Everything else looks fine. Does this thermostat look right
  18. My much-loved Westfield SEiW is for sale. Excellent car, set up for performance, agility and every day driveability. I’ve owned it for a few years and it’s always been reliable, even for touring. I'm told it was set up and corner weighted by Northampton motorsport. The car has an age-related H plate but was completed and registered in 2007. It’s been well looked after, always garaged and due to lack of weather gear, used only in dry conditions. It currently has 12,462 miles on the clock (might change due to use) and MOT until 11th August 2018. I have a large box of paperwork and receipts.

    Zetec feature in Complete Kit Car

    Interesting segment on Zetec pros, cons, and tuning in the new issue of Complete Kit Car.
  20. New visitor here. Mark from Oxfordshire. I have an orange and black complete Zetec SE kit on order and I should be picking it up in two weeks time ( fingers crossed weather etc). This is my second build, sort have got a rather expensive build habit forming. I have to confess I embraced the dark side first, I assembled a Caterham 160 in 2016 / 2017. All IVA'd and great fun on road and track, looking forward to the challenge of assembling the Westy 2 Litre, the test drive was great so looking forward to 150 BHP vs 80 BHP. House rule is I can keep the 160 till the Westy is IVA'd after t
  21. Just wanted to say Hi to the forum, and present my car. I bought it 2 months ago, as a track car. Glad to be in the forum, lots of good technical info and good to be in touch with other owners! I live in Spain and as you can imagine these cars are very rare here. The previous owner could not give me much information about the cars history, I am discovering it as I go along. Its a LHD seiw with a 2.0 zetec engine, type 9 gearbox, rusty spax shocks, discovery ap calipers, a revcounter and not much more And now some pics!!!

    Coolant system help

    Hi all, picked up my “new” westy at the weekend and drove it 200 miles home with no problems. Noticed a sight coolant drip from the bottom hose when I got back and the expansion tank was a bit murky and virtually empty. In my wisdom I thought this would be a good time to refresh the coolant. However, can’t get the bottom hose off to drain all the old stuff out (did get maybe a litre out though). Filled the expansion tank which only took a litre. Ran the engine to get it warm and open the thermostat but not sure what the problem is now!! The top hose got hot enough I

    A little help - urgent

    Hi All, I've gone and busted the take off from my Zetec thermostat housing thingy, the one that, on my setup, goes to the expansion/header tank with a 10mm hose. It's the green bit, the rest of it is in the hose! It seems the plate has 3 bolts (two seen in the pic) so just the face plate might do...? Could I even block this off? I broke it whilst replacing the old original header tank with a new one and I also discovered I need some more hose. It needs to be 25(26)mm at the thick end then 15(16)mm at the thin end. I suspect it needs to be about a foot long min as I'm
  24. I am after a carbon exhaust silencer and link pipe for a zetec. I do currently have a stainless cat version that may also be up for grabs, cheers.
  25. Morning all, its been a while since I took the cables off and I didn't take a picture. Can anyone help with the correct location for both starter and alternator? Additionally, on the starter motor end, where does the earth from the chassis bolt to? Is it through the bell housing caphead bolt or to the hex head that goes into the block?
