    Checking Oil Levels

    Hi All, I have a K-Series factory built westfield and assume I have a type-9 box (I don't know if having a rover engine would mean that I have a different box but doubt it). I have a very mild gearbox leak and keen to see if I need to top up my oil. From what I can read, there is no way of telling if you have enough oil in the car but get some more oil and fill it up until it overflows... can anyone tell me if this is right?! On a separate note, I understand that the gearbox filler is a pain to get to and the best way is to drill a hole in the footwell - again any advice would be much appreciated. Many thanks, Josh
  2. Just a quick question for all the builders out there, did anybody bother with the access hole for the gearbox oil access hole? Was spotted by my local club the other weekend when they came around for a look at progress that I have "err missed it" , and I have since asked the factory to have a look at one of there cars, and it appears they are not currently putting an access hole in at all? i had it in my mind to fit a 50 mm blind grommet but, if its not needed might not bother?

    Which oil filter do I need

    Hi, Newbie to the forum here. I've got a Westfield with a 2.0 Zetec engine and it's due a replacement oil and filter. I've got the oil and the tools, but cannot find out for the life of me what oil filter I should get! It has a remote oil filter kit fitted (unknown brand) along with the Raceline wet sump kit. The only numbers I can find on the existing oil filter are 48140001 which appear to be a Reisse oil filter, however I can't get a replacement anywhere. I can provide a pic if it helps but it's just a black filter with those numbers on. So far I can only work out that it's a normal not stubby length filter, if that makes any sense! Any help is appreciated. Thanks James

    Seight Oil Leak

    This may be a stupid question but, I have a Westfield V8 (4ltr range rover block) which started leaking oil somewhere towards the front following an oil change. It has a Mocal remote filter. The leak is bad enough to need attention so I'm going to take the front off to gain access, the stupid questions are, why following an oil change? and are there any "usual suspects" for leak points? as its all a bit mucky at the moment its hard to see where the leak(s) may be but I'd guess at right at the front and possibly something to do with the remote filter. Any pointers before I get the front off will be gratefully received.
  5. Hi all, My Seight is running a TVR 4.0l V8 on a Edelbrock 1404 4 barrel carb with a Offenhauser inlet manifold and K & N pancake air filter. The Rocker covers are both vented to atmosphere with no pipe to the carb vacuum. Having had the car set up on a rolling road I noted quite a lot of oil smoke from one of the vents at full revs (has an after market filter on it) due to "blow by" and I'm thinking of connecting one of the rocker covers to the carb either via the air filter or to the PCV vacuum pipe at the front of the carb. I'd use a standard TVR flame trap and a pipe into the bottom of the pancake filter as first choice as this seems to be the least likely to mess up the carb settings. However I'm toying with the idea of connecting to the PCV as I understand you get a better vacuum and therefore less oil leakage. Questions are:- Does anyone have any experience of this? pictures would be great and even part numbers, sources etc. And do I need to fit a PCV valve in the second option as I'm not clear if one of these would have been fitted as standard, is it therefore needed? Any thoughts or recommendations gratefully received. Cheers Dave

    Oil Pressure Sender Connector

    Hi Everyone, Got an oil pressure gauge issue which i've done a little reading about. Decided to try a new sender before worrying about where else the issue could be. I've made sure the thread and pressure rating of the sender matches my existing sender however the connector is different. Any idea what sort of connector this is and what I need to wire it up? Existing sender: New Sender: Thanks!

    Zetec 2L Oil pressure sender

    Hi I'm working on a new build all parts supplied by Westfield and I have a real novice question. Unfortunately it's Sunday and I can't phone Mark so I'm hoping there's somebody several steps ahead of me who has already asked this. The engine came with an oil pressure sender fitted, or at least it measures as such ~300ohms, but I also got sent a more traditional looking unit. The issue is that the connector on the loom (eyelet) doesn't fit the unit that is in the engine, it's a funny recessed thing. Am I just missing a connector or do I need to replace the sender. I know there can be issues with thread sizes on these units so don't just want to rush in. Jamie

    MT75 Gear Oil

    Hi there, Is this the best oil to use with the MT75 Gearbox? And will I need more than 1 litre? http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_808963_langId_-1_categoryId_255220 Cheers Jocker
