    Lowered Floors - Bottoming Out

    Morning Collective...... I’ve got standard Westfield Protech shocks, lowered floors and a 6’4” 17st driver 😬.... + I’m normally ‘two’s up’ with my son who thinks he has the god given right to be sat in the passenger seat whenever I want to blatt!!! I suppose I’ll look back with fond memories in later years!!!....... anyway..... my problem is that I’ve become nervous about driving at speed on bumpy roads due to bottoming out..... it’s not happening all the time.... but it is taking the edge of a spirited drive.... I’ve got the shocks set to the firmest setting, but I know I’m on bog standard

    Sheered Aluminium Upright

    Hi there! First post, first Westfield, not first problem. I bought 2 new Westfields, factory assembled and had them shipped to Colombia... seemed like a good idea at the same until I realized my business "partner" over there had no money to invest. Anyway, thats besides the point. After a 2 year process of importing the cars, we have now done around 1000km on them both in the last couple of months. I have had a range of issues, wiper switches not working or jet on either car, fuel pumps had broken, clutch cable was loose and left me stranded, indicators stayed on without blinking, loo

    Wheel Alignment / Geo - Surrey

    Hi All, So - I am two weeks into the ownership of my first Westfield. SEIW - 1.8 Zetec - 45's and red.. :-) Love it! However, ownership is not running as smoothly as I would like! I am experiencing a somewhat hard ride and "twitchy" handling when driving on normal roads. It just doesn't feel particularly planted and feels quite nervous. As a newbee I have taken the time to search and read the previous posts within the forum. from what I understand this could be down to the following : - Alignment ( Camber, toe in etc ) - Damper settings - ARB - PSI Everything els
  9. So I have done about a few miles since picking her up on Sunday and a few things I have noticed so far are mainly to do with the handling. Around town and at civilised speeds the car is perfect. However, if the red mist does descend and you end up pushing the car towards motorway speeds I have the fight of my life to keep it in a straight line. The car is all factory parts, built by an engineer and bought off a family than used to run a Westy race team, and this was the "civilised road car" as they put it. No expense spared and I have every confidence in the car. My first thoughts were
  10. Standard springs for SEIW Having converted to wide track, I have replaced the springs to maintain the geometry. So I have two standard Westfield front springs available. Approx 10" , 12yrs old and 10k miles. Reasonable condition. 2 or 3 of the coils on their inside edge had some surface rust on each spring. I've cleaned them up and hammerited them. £10 +del or collection from Cheshire - 20mins from J19, M6 Pete

    Garage clearout after winter upgrades

    After a winter upgrade I have lots of parts for sale, need the garage space and the funds to pay for upgrades :-) All parts located in Glasgow but may be able to find somebody to transport down to Stoneleigh, otherwise P&P will be at cost. Ive added prices and RRP as a guide but no idea what to be asking, if it's too high then make me an offer, if it flies off the shelf then I know its under priced :-). Ask as many questions as you wish, I'll answer to my best ability. Discs, calipers and pads (GC) £85 (RRP £175) Cobra Roadster 7 seats (AS NEW) with Willans red 3 p

    Dooh - chassis straightening

    Following an overenthusiastic exit from Gerrards at Mallory Park on Friday I have an embarrassingly bent front nearside. Putting aside the replaceable bits, my main issue is a slightly bent chassis; the nearside top rail is bent a couple of centimetres out of true between about half way along the engine bay (it is a 1991 SEiW which has a diagonal brace running forward to that point) and the front rail. The top front rail accordingly has a slight bow in it but the offside looks fine. No sign of any cracks in tubes or welds. Does anyone have experience of getting a chassis straighten
  13. Hi all... I am posting on behalf of a friend in France so please bear with me if I don't have all the information to hand about his car, I will try to explain what he is looking for. The car is a 1986 Mk1 1300. It has been fitted with (too) short suspension units, no good for any practical use and he has a standard sump... it bottoms out! We have been in contact with Westfield an been advised that the correct shocks for this car should be 35.5cm on the rear and 31.5cm on the front. So far so good... his are a lot shorter, probably just scrap that the previous owner fitted to mo

    Cracked Alu suspension upright

    The Westie was in the garage getting the camber and toe-in set correctly and they noticed this on the front nearside aluminium suspension upright: It was quite hard to spot with the wheel on, being tucked under the head of the caliper bolt, but fairly obvious to see once the wheel and wing were off. I couldn't see any other posts on similar uprights so thought it worth posting here. For reference, the cast number on the alu upright is 10015. Spoke to Westfield about it when ordering the replacement part and I offered to send it back so they could inspect. They declined - I was tol
  15. Through the years Westfield's have used a number of different types and designs for their rear axle and suspension. whilst there are some variations with different applications and years, for Car engined vehicles these can be most typically be categorised into 4 different types. Escort Live axle The Live axle was used in the Pre-Lit, Narrow Body (SE) and Wide Body (SEW) cars. It uses a modified Ford Escort Mk1 or Mk2 (English) axle. Independent Axle (Westfield/Escort Diff) This was first used in the Narrow Body (SEI) and the early Wide Body (SEIW) cars. The differentia
