Hi everyone, I have a pre-litigation Westfield and have been struggling with a strong fuel smell when in the garage for a couple of months now. I have now identified the leak around a screw on the fuel sender unit which I have removed and found the seal needs replacing, I believe the sender unit is a MTU115 moprod from a MK2 escort. Westfield, Demontweeks and Rally Design have all been unable to help me find a suitable seal as a replacement so I am hoping you will be able to point me in the right direction. Could any of you tell me whether a newer sender unit from westfield would be suitable or where I could obtain a replacement seal from? Cheers Andy
Hi All, I'm after some help with a couple of issues I currently have. The car I've got has been through an engine rebuild, from 101bhp to 146bhp so really pleased with that. Although the car seems to using a huge amount of fuel. Engine is a 2 litre Pinto, bike carbs, Kent cam and 4 into one Westfield manifold with Wunoff silencer. What sort of fuel consumption should I expect? I'm just trying to understadn what sort of range i should get from one tank. The car is a 1990 narrow. It has been set up locally, however is it worth taking to Bogg Brothers for a second opinion, as there is carbon deposit on the exhaust and it still smells a bit "fuelly". The previous owner in his infinite wisdom decided to slap some 17 inch wheels on, not surprisingly they are rubbing on the wing brackets and stopping full lock being achieved. So i want to put some more appropriate wheels on. Is it best to go for 15s for road use and is there an optimal width? Can some one tell me how to work out the appropriate offset. Its an old narrow with what i assume are Cortina hubs some presume its 4 x 108. I recently rebuilt the braking system. Reconditioned master cylinder, new braided hoses and I rebuilt the calipers. I flushed the brakes and got them working ok. However there was a small leak on the rear hoses. So i replaced the some washers with rubber ones to allow the lines to be cinched up more. Refilled the system and now i cannot get clear brake fluid out of the rears. Comes out quite dark. Any ideas? The rubber washers aren't in contact with the fluid. The brakes also feel more spongy than before. Finally it looks like the gearbox is leaking but it's difficult to see where from. I know the common area is the rear seal. If i replace that it good practice to replace anything else like the speedo seal or front seal. If so, will it be easier to take the box out rather than do it all in situ. Thanks in advance. Will
