  1. With my IVA looming in just over 2 weeks, I've discovered my rear wheels lock-up before the fronts 😕 I have Sierra uprights with HiSpec Ultralite 4 callipers. I'm assuming 50/50 braking between the front and back - backs locking first because of the weight at the front . . . I need a valve that is non-adjustable for IVA. I've read a few of the kit-car forums and the Fiesta one looks like it will do the job. Ebay has a few:- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Ford-Focus-C-Max-Fiesta-MK5-Front-Brake-Pressure-Reducing-Valve-1469610/272376228296?epid=1509753686&hash=item3f6ae369c8:g:3pwAAOSwEtRb4q5T But I would like to following any recommendations /experiences from club members - and the best location for fitting on a Westfield. Would really appreciate any help . . . David.

    Wilwood Midilites with Standard MC

    Hi all, I have a niggling doubt that I'd like to put to rest... I'm using Wilwood Midilites for my the front brakes, with 285mm vented discs. These came from Rally Design as a Westfield-specific kit with mounting brackets, code BK1U (link). However I'm using the standard master cylinder and am wondering if this is okay or if I'm going to have issues with insufficient pressure or unsuitable pedal travel? Should I be using a different MC with a different diameter?

    Advice needed...

    Hi All, I'm after some help with a couple of issues I currently have. The car I've got has been through an engine rebuild, from 101bhp to 146bhp so really pleased with that. Although the car seems to using a huge amount of fuel. Engine is a 2 litre Pinto, bike carbs, Kent cam and 4 into one Westfield manifold with Wunoff silencer. What sort of fuel consumption should I expect? I'm just trying to understadn what sort of range i should get from one tank. The car is a 1990 narrow. It has been set up locally, however is it worth taking to Bogg Brothers for a second opinion, as there is carbon deposit on the exhaust and it still smells a bit "fuelly". The previous owner in his infinite wisdom decided to slap some 17 inch wheels on, not surprisingly they are rubbing on the wing brackets and stopping full lock being achieved. So i want to put some more appropriate wheels on. Is it best to go for 15s for road use and is there an optimal width? Can some one tell me how to work out the appropriate offset. Its an old narrow with what i assume are Cortina hubs some presume its 4 x 108. I recently rebuilt the braking system. Reconditioned master cylinder, new braided hoses and I rebuilt the calipers. I flushed the brakes and got them working ok. However there was a small leak on the rear hoses. So i replaced the some washers with rubber ones to allow the lines to be cinched up more. Refilled the system and now i cannot get clear brake fluid out of the rears. Comes out quite dark. Any ideas? The rubber washers aren't in contact with the fluid. The brakes also feel more spongy than before. Finally it looks like the gearbox is leaking but it's difficult to see where from. I know the common area is the rear seal. If i replace that it good practice to replace anything else like the speedo seal or front seal. If so, will it be easier to take the box out rather than do it all in situ. Thanks in advance. Will

  12. Hi all I've recently joined WSCC and bought a SEiGHT, it was good to meet Steve at the Warwickshire meet last week. I'm planning a few changes and would appeciate some experienced pointers on suspension and brakes. Car will be used mostly on road with 2 up (with only occasional sprint). Changing to widetrack front and looking to replace the old dampers and springs allround. Heard good things about Protech - What size springs, lbs & dampers would be a good place to start on front & back repectively? Secondly I'm having JE Developments liberate some extra horses from the 4.3 V8 and would like some extra stopping power, any suggestions on good brake calipers/disc upgrades. I have 16" wheels. Thanks in advance

    Squealing brakes

    So any ideas why my front brake squeals like a banshee on heat? I've tried copaslip on the back and sides of the pads taking care not to contaminate the disc or pads. Worth cleaning the discs?

  15. Hi All, I have a an issue with brake imbalance, having taken the pads out there is an issue with the front left caliper bering much slower to deploy than the front right, resulting in a 38% imbalance. I need to identify the type of caliper "beleived to be Sierra" and there are 4x pistons in total internally. If anyone can help identify from the photo link below would be much appreciated as i need either to strip and recon or purchase a replacement. http://s845.photobucket.com/user/notifycarl/media/brake%20calipers/frontcaliper1_zps975d67fa.jpg.html Front an rear pictures on Photobucket. Any help much appreciated :-)

    Changing my xr4x4 rear pads

    Continuing my theme of having enthusiasm but not that much actual mechanical talent, Im picking things up as I go along. Changing the pads all round. Ive done the fronts with minimal fuss and was very proud of myself. Now I've never changed rear pads before so forgive me. Ive got the caliper off and the old pads out. It looks like its a wind back type so Ive used my caliper wind back tool to no effect. I can't get the piston to budge! I haven't disconnected the handbrake cable. Is this why it won't go back, and if so....how do I disconnect the handbrake? Cheers!
