Well actually no it didn't One of the biggest challenges when trying to fit the CVH engine into our project car was, would the bonnet go on afterwards. Obviously we spent hours meticulously measuring and comparing the position of the engine in the chassis with my other car "Marilyn", before the body was reunited with the rest of the car, only to find out we were about 20mm high right at the front of the engine. To cut a long and stressful story short, because we didn't want a power bulge in the bonnet, a company called Fibet came to our rescue. They manufacture Isolation Mounts in all shapes sizes and specs for automotive as well as industrial use . I contacted them via their website explained the issue and what we were trying to do. To my surprise they responded almost immediately explained that the item we needed was out of stock, but they would be doing a production run in the next two weeks. True to their word two weeks later I get a package in the post with the new engine mounts supplied completely free of charge including p&p... Fantastic!!! Who said customer service was dead, it's alive and very well at www.fibet.co.uk for sure After getting home from Stoneleigh on Sunday parked the two cars in the drive next to each other for the first time. Now it's easy to see why we had so much trouble when you compare the project car to Marilyn in the background. All worked out well in the end.... anybody looking for a nice 1989 SEi only covered 1600 miles from new G.
Hi everyone, I'm a university student, currently working on a project with regards to the use of carbon fibre in kit cars such as the Westfields. Essentially, we are working with Axon Automotive on a passenger tub, where the passenger and the driver are seated, made entirely of carbon fibre (including the beams, the flooring and the side panels); whereas, the front and back of the chassis remain with the original steel frame chassis. So the method used to join the steel frame to the carbon fibre tub is through nuts and bolts. I'm currently conducting a survey just to determine your perception on the use of carbon fibre in kit cars, especially for the tub. More information about the product itself is available in the survey link below and I'd really appreciate if you could take a couple of minutes to answer the survey. All responses will be stored anonymously and I really hope that I can get a great number of responses from you all. Click here for the Survey. Cheers, Will
Hi all I am the owner of a sad but loved, SEI wide body 1992 with a X flow engine bored out to 1800cc with twin webber carbs. I parked this about six years ago in a container as I had to move to Ireland. I have recently had someone look at it and I have been told that the moisture in the container has sized the engine. I don't have the time or ability to do anything with this. Would people on the forum be able to give me a rough estimate of its value as is ( A project) otherwise the car is in good nick and used to handle like a dream and I have taken it to Les Mans on a number of occasions. any help much appreciated.
