  1. With regret, a change in personal circumstances means I have to sell on my SEW Westfield after only about 3 months ownership. I bought the car late June, and have had a wonderful short period of motoring, the car performs faultlessly, and I have covered around 1000 miles in that time. Its a great car, and my 14 year old son and I will be very sorry to see it go, as we have had great fun driving and tinkering! The car came to me with a comprehensive folder of receipts and build documentation including some original build photos and the original build manual. The original order letter is included, as well as original documentation for the shock absorbers VDO gauges etc and loads of original build receipts. SVA documentation comes with the car, which shows at the time it was tested the car weighed 636kg without driver. I guess its about the same even now, maybe a little less as it no longer has the spare wheel fitted. The car has a 2.0 litre Pinto with the preferable 205 block, and it has been modified with a Kent cam (I can't be sure which one but I think its the FR32), and has also been converted to run on unleaded. There are twin Spanish Weber DCOE40 carburettors. The carbs breathe through a newly fitted ITG JC50 air filter. The engine bay is neat and tidy, and the engine is not leaking oil or smoking. A new fan belt has just been fitted. A wrapped tubular manifold leads to a large steel silencer with a chromed endpipe and newly replaced mounting bobbin. Holds temperature really nicely between 75 and 85 on the gauge at all times even in trafffic, with the fan working as it should. In the receipts I found a dyno trace for the engine from when the car was built showing 123bhp at the wheels (maybe 140bhp or a bit more at the flywheel at a guess?) though of course this was many years ago so who knows what the engine is putting out now. Subjectively the engine feels healthy and moves the car along very well indeed so whatever the output is, it makes a pretty quick and very exciting car! The gearbox is a 5 speed Type 9 - first second and reverse can be a bit baulky - but like most pinto cars I use 2nd to start, so once you are out of that gear it changes really nicely across the rest of the gears. Its not that you can't use the lower gears its just they need a bit of a push to engage. It might be the short gear lever or clutch cable that could benefit from a bit of adjustment, and it doesn't spoil enjoyment of driving the car, but I better mention it anyway. In top gear the car runs at about 3150rpm for 70mph. As an SEW the car has a live axle of course, there are no leaks I can see and can't hear any clunking from the diff. Spax Shocks are fitted all round. Front hubs are Cortina as are front brakes - disks up front of course and drums to the rear. The car runs on Wolfrace Voodoo wheels, with Falken tyres all round, 195/50/15 on the front and 205/50/15 on the rear. There are locking wheelnuts fitted. I run the tyres about 20 psi which for me gives a decent level of compliance in the ride. Its a standard SEW body, with cycle wings and I have removed the rear wheel. The spare is another Wolfrace Voodoo wheel with near new Falken tyre, and I've trimmed the wheel carrier so it can be extended back out to reinstate the wheel if the new owner wants to do that. The rear panel has an alloy filler cap with lock and I added a genuine metal "powered by Ford" badge as fitted to some modern Mustangs to break up the expanse of blue bodywork. The bodywork is in decent condition, by no means pristine, but very presentable. There are a fair few marks here and there as you would expect, but no major damage, and it still polishes up really nicely. One of the cycle wings has a bit of a crack at one of its mounting points as you can see in the photo, and the bonnet could do with a few tidy ups round the edges as its taken a few knocks over the years. The bonnet could be a better fit to the car too, but it is secure and does not stand out a mile by any means and does not at all spoil the looks. The car gets lots of compliments whenever I use it, and at a glance could pass for a much newer car. I've got a brand new Westfield 43mm badge that I was going to put on the nosecone but I will leave that up to the new owner to decide if they want it installed. The interior looks like a pretty typical late 1990's car, with a standard padded vinyl dash and VDO gauges. The gauges are all back lit and all are working correctly, in fact everything works(!) including the 2 speed heater which pumps out a lot of warmth on a chilly morning. The cabin is fully carpeted, the side panels are covered in vinyl and all of it is still in really nice condition, so the interior is very presentable and not at all tatty. There are Willans 4 point harnesses and nice looking sports seats on runners so you can find a decent position from the pedals even if you have short legs like me! A Centurion CarGuard immobiliser is fitted, which has a little fob transponder and there are 2 sets of keys. There is a hood fitted which is in very nice condition still, the only problem is that the plastic header rail has broken in half, which seems to be a normal issue, though it is still completely usable and does not cause any problems when fitting the hood. I use the sidescreens quite a lot, again they are in very good condition and the windows are still nice and clear. In really heavy downpours, like most Westfields I guess this car is not fully waterproof if left for hours unprotected in the elements, and as my garage is a bit of a way from home I invested about £170 in August for a Hamilton 4 layer outdoor semi-fitted car cover which has been absolutely superb - you can fit it in a minute or 2 and there are 2 straps that run under the car to keep it secure. Obviously this comes with the car. The MOT runs to 18 April 2019. I believe I am the 3rd owner - original builder was the first, then the guy I bought it from was the second, but I can't seem to find the number of owners on the V5 (which is in my name) to confirm. I've spent about £400 on the car in the last few months, new air filter and other odds and ends, to ensure it is functional usable and enjoyable. Much as I would like to keep hold of it for another summer, I really have urgent need to release some funds, so I am hoping this can find a new home reasonably quickly as I hope my asking price of £5800 is reasonable. The car is located near Dorking Surrey, though I work near Gatwick airport so could be inspected around that area too if that is more convenient. Robert 078401 48261

    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
  3. This thread doesn't start with a trip to the Westfield factory, or a picture of a shiney floored empty garage, it starts with a long neglected unfinished machine, that looks like this As you can see it's as much a restoration as it is a build. It's a 1991 Pinto Seiw that has never been near a road. Bought by a friend as an unfinished project in 1993 and never progressed further than this. Aiming to Get it road legal eventually if at all possible, maybe, well we can always just do a few track days in it, let's see how far we get

    Fuel evaporation from twin 45's?

    Hi, I own a Ford Pinto 2.1 with twin Webber 45's, if I run it until it is propery hot in the summer (it is not overheating) and immediately try to start again (even 30mins later) it simply will not start and yesterday I could not even bump start it. My mechanic tells me that this is due to high temperatures evaporating the petrol out of the carbs through the air intakes and that I should try depressing the accelarator 4x before turning the ignition to try an get the petrol in. Do people concur/ are there any other ideas out there? He did mention that some people have put a baffle between the engine and the carbs to reduce carb temps, but it doesn't sound very convincing to me. I suppose I could upgrade the fan to reduce temps to a consistent 80deg? Trevor

    Pinto Valve Timing

    I have been unable to start my Westy after replacing the cylinder head and would appreciate any help to get it up and running again. I have a Westfield SEiW with a 2.0l Pinto engine and twin DCOE 45 Weber carburettors. The bottom end is unmodified, save for a lightened flywheel and I decided to improve performance by adding a big valve cylinder head and uprated camshaft. I purchased a Stage 2 unleaded head and a Kent GTS1 camshaft from Burton Power. Burtons fitted the camshaft to ensure the geometry etc was correct. I removed the old cylinder head and fitted the new one without any difficulty and set up the valve timing using the Full Lift Before/After TDC Method as follows. Established TDC on No1 Cylinder Fitted Timing Disc to crankshaft pulley and set to zero degrees. Adjusted Auxilliary pulley so that distributor rotor pointed to No 1 cylinder Fitted and tensioned timing belt Released vernier pulley on camshaft so that it rotated freely Rotated engine clockwise by 108 degrees (the quoted value for full valve lift) Turned camshaft so that inlet valve on No 1 cylinder was at maximum lift Tightened vernier pulley Torqued everything up Turned engine over by hand without issue. But it refuses to start. I have tried advancing/ retarding the ignition slightly but to no avail. I have a healthy spark and fuel seems OK. I have run out of ideas and would appreciate comments on my methodology or anything else that I may have forgotten about or failed to do. Thanks in anticipation. Alastair.

    Pinto troubles

    Hi all, Got my membership sorted so hopefully some kind people can offer some advice. I have a 1990 narrow that runs a 2L pinto. When I got the car it was in quite a state, it's a bit better now, but very much still a project! It didn't run at all. Now it runs after an electrical fault was sorted, new battery, timing sorted etc. It passed it's MOT and I then taxed it. All fine. It was then after some longer drives (only a few miles) that another gremlin reared it's head. On the first trip of a few miles, it overheated horribly and vented a load of coolant on to the road. We let it cool off and then a day or so later took it out again and it over heated once more. So then I took the following steps. - Checked the thermostat and replaced the 92c for an 88c (checked the thermostat worked in pan before fitting) - Used two stage rad flush and filled with new coolant. Put it all back together and still overheating. So I then - Swapped out the thermostat for an 82c (drilled a 3mm hole in the thermostat too) - Took of the water pump for inspection which seems ok, is there anything specific to look for? The current set up has a radiator with a pressure cap and no expansion tank. Whilst the radiator allows water through, would it be worth replacing it with a Polo unit and adding an expansion tank to the set up. At the moment the current system vents to the road via an outlet on the radiator filler neck. Or shall I put it back together as is with the 82c thermostat and see where that gets me. I also did a compression test and got 160ish on all four cylinders. The engine as far as i know is standard apart from it has R1 carbs fitted. Any ideas or advice would be great. Thanks

    Creating an XE loom

    I'm not pretending to know anything much about electrics and wiring, but somehow I've got to create an XE loom from a Pinto one. Having stripped it out of the car last night, the issue that sticks out to me is that of the wiring for the ignition amplifier module for the old pinto engine. Does anyone have any wiring diagrams etc. for an XE loom. What should I do with the amplifier wiring, I suppose strip it back and investigate where it originates from.
