It’s with a heavy heart that I’m going to have to give up ownership of any ‘toy’ car at the moment as we have run out of funds to renovate our house and the Westfield will have to go 😭. Hopefully in the New Year I will have something in place (selling a kidney etc.) to buy another one but in the short term she will have to go.

In short, this is an odd car in that it’s essentially brand new and only done 150 miles. I bought it from a fellow member that decided it was a bit too savage and wasn’t for him. I’ve done some homework and realised the Blackbird engine has a reputation in some circles for not being the most robust engine for the Westfield in the lubrication department if not properly engineered. My car when I bought it, not having either a dry sump or an Accusump installation was probably the reason for the initial low mileage and lack of use.

 

Good news is that this is now completely sorted thanks to Andy at AB Performance. He suggested a particular Accusump installation and with his advice on chek valve hardware, adapter plate plumbing electric valve Accusump operation and baffle plate this is now a completely usable road / trackday friendly car.

 

It was IVA tested and properly registered in 2017 so bears a ‘17 plate registration too. Everything (apart from the donor engine) was new at build and high specification. 

 

The underside is as clean as the top side!, discs still have hatching marks on them etc.!
