    Yet another clearout SOLD

    8 years after the engine swap, I still have a 2 litre Pinto engine, and a Westfield Pinto pre SVA/IVA stainless exhaust. Supplied as a recon unit by Westfield in 1996. About 6,500 miles. Hand gas flowed big valve head. Kent RL32 cam, extended ball studs, vernier pulley, balanced crank & lightened flywheel. ARP rod bolts, RS2000 alloy sump, spare sump pan somewhere, Kent high pressure oil pump, fuel pump. Clutch, cover (balanced to flywheel) It turns, but needs a bit of TLC. Exhaust is without clamps etc, and the manifold section could do with a clean. Located in Reading. Buyers to collect. Engine £50, exhaust £25

    Problems starting engine

    Hi All, I've got an issue with my Westie that I hope someone can shed some light on. Recently when I go to start the car, nothing happens... I'll explain. 1. Turn key on 2. Wiggle immobilizer fob next to wire, can hear fuel pumps running 3. Press the start-stop button, and it just makes a 'click' and the starter motor does nothing. (The click seems to come from around the induction side of the duratec) However, 1 time in 20 or so, it starts fine! Things I've checked already: 1. Battery - fully charged 2. Starter motor - works fine during the time when it actually starts 3. Fuel pumps - Working 4. Immobiliser - Pretty sure the fob + wire contact is working fine. 5. Same issue whether it's a hot or cold start Any thoughts? Many thanks as always, Rob

    2.0 litre Engine wanted ....

    Hi All .... Looking to change my 1.6 OHC in the Westie with something a bit quicker ... maybe a 2.0 litre zetec? Any suggestions where I may find one suitable or does anyone have one for sale? Cheers Woody

    Engine wanted

    Hi All New member today, I am looking for an engine for my Westfield, have a Xflow on Twin 40's at the moment however picked up some scores on the bores and they are already at +0.90. Any thoughts on this? Now considering a replacement and thinking Zetec, would prefer a full unit with all bits but open to ideas and options. If you have advise or something of interest for sale let me know. Mark
  12. Okay here's a silly question (so I expect plenty of silly answers!) When I arrive home on April 9th with my (hired) Luton van full of my Special Edition kit, what is the best method for moving the engine/gearbox? How does it come packaged? Cheers, Simon
  13. Took the westie out last night after a dry day but was making a very strange noise, managed to get it started and was spot on after that. But tested it again today and the noise is still there when initially starting it up, any ideas of what it could be? Thanks in advance for any suggestions! Link to video with sound: Nic
  14. Ever since selling my Narrow project car last year, this has been taking up room and gathering dust in the back of the garage so finally it's time for it to go. This is it's brief history and spec. The engine is ex Andy Burge who campaigned it in the Ma5da racing series, carrying him to one win and a second place in the 2009 season. It reportedly made 128bhp at the wheels when on the rolling road in March 2008 (see original ebay advert below) although I haven't proved that figure and I would suggest it would actually be more realistic if measured as a flywheel figure. His car was unfortunately rolled in an accident at Brands Hatch, after which Andy decided to take a step back from racing for a while and stripped his MX5 for parts and selling the engine. I paid £220 for the engine in June 2010 and initially I had the intention to use it as a spare for my car when I was having some problems myself, I fully stripped the engine to inspect it and then spent over £200 servicing it, replacing all the seals and gaskets. Eventually I decided to have my old engine rebuilt by Fraser at Blink so this one made it's way first into my Narrow car and then out again when that car was sold last year. The list of the main work completed by me includes: Crank pulley bolt and woodruff key Crankshaft front and rear oil seal Thermostat, Thermostat gasket and cover Clutch spigot bearing Head gasket Cam angle sensor o-ring Cam belt tensioner and spring Cambelt Water pump gasket Oil pump gasket Head gasket Camshaft oil seals The original work to the cylinder head before I bought it includes a 40thou skim to increase the compression and 3-angle cut to the valve seats. The thermostat has been relocated to the back of the head and the front outlet blocked off as I was originally intending to fit a coolant re-route. The engine could easily be converted back to the standard coolant layout. The engine is an early short nose crank and fitted with the 4-slot pulley. There is no sign of any wear to the keyway or woodruff key which is a common problem if the crank pulley bolt has been incorrectly torqued in the past. As a precaution I always fit a new key and bolt whenever stripping the front of the engine and then re-torque correctly. In checking over the engine before this sale I found that one of the exhaust valves on cylinder 4 was sticking in it's guide. As I couldn't be sure if this was a consequence of the engine having been standing for a while or whether it had a slight bend in it I therefore replaced both the valve and also the stem seal. I'm also including with the engine the inlet and exhaust manifolds as I have no use for them, but I'll point out that the metal gaskets have been re-used and therefore may need to be replaced if they don't seal correctly. The engine also comes with the flywheel, clutch, injectors, injector loom and CAS sensor but excludes the alternator, alternator bracket, starter motor and oil pressure sender (although I should have one for it somewhere if I can find it). As I've never run the engine whist I've owned it I'm also happy to accept returns from WSCC members and will offer a full refund to them (excluding any delivery costs) should there be any problems found with the engine. £250 collection only from Colchester, Essex - no offers please sorry now sold
  15. 2 ltr Zetec for sale out of my Westfield, engine was rebuilt by Northampton Motorsport in 2011 and has the following: Piper 285 cams & pulleys Forged H section rods Forged pistons Protune head Pace dry sump Lightweight race flywheel & clutch Aluminium bellhousing for Type 9 gearbox Weber 45 carbs MBE ECU Westfield 4-1 exhaust & Thermal Logic silencer (Prodrive WRC cars) It was dyno'd after the build at 215Bhp/169lbs and has only been used hill climbing since so not much mileage. Ideally I'd like to sell it as a complete package to go straight into a similar car but could split if needed. Looking for around £ 3,950 for the whole unit, I have lots of pics, receipts etc I can email over. You can see videos of it in the car at https://www.youtube.com/user/charliemi16205 Or call me on 07887 952 638 in Leicestershire

    Useful Upradeitis Websites

    Hi everyone, as the season of winter upgrades is fast approaching I thought it might be useful to put together a definitive list of all those websites that come in handy when sourcing parts, from the big stuff to those niggly little things that you can't find anywhere. I've started off with the top 20 websites in my 'favourites' list. If more people chip in with their favourites it will build a useful resource for everyone to complete their winter rebuilds. Happy surfing..... http://westfield-world.com/index.html http://www.carbonmods.co.uk/ http://www.plays-kool.co.uk/ http://www.trackdaytoyz.co.uk/ http://www.aerodynamix.co.uk/ http://www.demon-tweeks.co.uk/ http://www.jkcomposites.com/7s-page.html http://www.softbitsforsevens.co.uk/ http://www.larkspeed.com/ http://www.kitcardirect.co.uk/ http://www.kitpartsdirect.com/ http://www.rallydesign.co.uk/index.php http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/ http://www.abperformance.co.uk/ http://www.polevolt.co.uk/index.html http://www.thetoolboxshop.com/ http://www.vicfibretech.co.uk/Pages/KitCarHome.aspx http://www.cbsonline.co.uk/ http://www.fluke-motorsport.co.uk/ http://yorkshireengines.co.uk/Home.html

    Hi from a newbie

    Hi All, just signed up for membership.I hope you are all well.Ihave a cvh engined westfield i bought in march this year. Unfortunately it is now suffering from low oil pressure. 8psi at tickover and 22 psi at 2000 revs(according to the info i have it should be 40 psi at 2000 revs). I took it to chester sportscars who advised me the engine had limited life left. I my dillemais wether to go for a zetec swap or have my engine rebuilt. I was born without any mechanical skill so i would have to get some one to do this. Chester Sportscars quoted £4640 for a complete coversion with bike carbs with a rebuilt 2 litre zetec, guarateed for 12 months. Is this a fair price or what other options are available. Are there any other companies in the Greater Manchester/North West who do this conversion. Anyy info would be much appreciated from this great club.Sorry for the long first post Best regards, PeteBuckle
  18. I have a 1600 xflow with stage two head, piper cam, 1300cc pistons and twin 40 webbers. According to Burtons tuning guides I should be pushing around 130 bhp but i believe it to be nearer 100bhp however in favour of more power and speed i'm thinking about changing it for a series 2 RS Turbo engine. I've been speaking with the guys at bogg brothers and they are happy to take on the challenge but i just wondered if anyone had done it before? It doesn't seem to be a common choice engine but they can easily push 185 bhp with very little modification so i'm keen to listen to others opinions. Thanks in advance!
