  1. I've now started getting down and dirty with the Westfield SEi restoration, so I've added another episode below. Some asked for more footage of actual work on the car and less of me;o) I hope I’ve delivered;o) I posted my last video in the The Start Line when I introduced myself, but I guess as I've now started the restoration it should probably sit here. Hope you're all having a great Christmas!!!!
  2. After 3 years of fun, I am looking at moving into Tin Top racing so my Westfield is going up for sale. It's a fantastic car, and is the perfect road / occasional track day car in its current spec and could be taken either way to make an out and out track car, or an even better road car. So the car: Westfield SEiW registered on 1998 on an R plate, wide body with V8 ducted nose cone and vented bonnet. 2.0 Vauxhall XE Red Top with oil pump, hydraulic tappets, plugs and a Varley red top 30 battery fitted within the last few years. Fully serviced with oils and fluids over the winter, also garaged over winter. It runs on MBE Engine Management with tapered throttle bodies giving 197bhp on a rolling road. Gearbox is a Type 9 close ratio straight cut competition box with short quick shift. Paddle type clutch Sierra Limited Slip Differential Front brakes are Wilwood 4 pots with solid discs, rears are Sierra disks. Braided brake hoses Gaz adjustable suspension 2.4 Steering Rack 13 inch Compomotive alloys Carbon fibre effect rear arch protectors and rear lights Carbon fibre exhaust Playskool Half Cage Willians Harnesses Momo steering wheel Recently fitted with an upgraded Coolex radiator with new fan Cooling override switch (never had any overheating problems but the switch was already fitted and I upgraded the radiator for more track work) AP Racing Brake Master Cylinder (took me almost a year to get hold of one of these to fit! Rocking horse s*** springs to mind!) Heater Full leather dash and carpets Immobiliser Hamilton car cover (with slight tear) Side doors and soft bits for sevens tonneau cover The car has been fully set up with geo and corner weights by Northampton Motorsports MOT until September 17 As you can see, it is a great spec car. I have spent thousands on this car and it is in fantastic condition, I have stacks of history and receipts too. I have loved owning it and hope the next person does too. I just want to try my hand a bit more seriously on track! I am in no rush to sell so please no silly offers. Car is based in Leamington Spa. Contact 07429155373. Price: £11,500

    MOT Problem Help Please

    Hi, I would really appreciate some help as I've just tried to put the car for an MOT and the guy had to give up on the omission test 1. lambda reading was too high, although HC and C02 where OK 2. engine overheated as the fan didn't cut in 3. engine started to miss-fire I had a problem before with the thermo fan, but I thought I fixed it (poor connections). I think the switch is at fault - but can any one tell me how to get the correct replacement? Lambda - too high could this be related to miss-fire or is it an ecu or lambda sensor itself Where can I get a new sensor and how much do they cost? 20XE engine MBE941 ecu wide band lambda sensor Any help will be greatly appreciated
  4. Distributor and coil for Vauxhalls I had an intermittent fault on my XE redtop and replaced loads of bits to trace the fault which turned out to be the Weber Alpha ignition management system. My saviour was this distributor, amp and coil from a Vauxhall 8v Cavalier - worked a treat - whoop whoop! 3 months later I bought a new ignition system so this dizzy, amp, (homemade heatsink) and coil are available. (cap and rotor new - used for 2 months) Open to offers, £25 + postage ? Pete
