Speedo not working.

Hi Richard
I could be completely wrong here but I seem to remember someone writing about faulty wires in the plug to the speed sensor.... worth a check?

Help Needed Puma 1.7 LSD

Hi Mate
I think Sinisa (Wild E Coyote) might have the answer to this question.

Hello everyone!

Hi Mate
Just be careful if you're thinking about buying a Puma now. Have a real good look underneath before you buy as most of them (apart from the ones that have really been looked after) will be rotting underneath, particularly around the rear beam mounts which is a MOT failure.

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

Hi James and Sinisa
The Anglia will move to this side of the garage as soon as the Westfield is built as there is a pit there for doing all the nasty underneath welding stuff. Sinisa, the biggest tool in the garage is me in the last photo :-)

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

Well the weather has been a bit crap this year but I still managed to take the Puma to a good few shows without cleaning it too much thanks to my Westfield friend giving it a good old buffing. https://i.postimg.cc/GmwYZRyw/241020194224.jpg I really need to get the car garaged through the summer but ...

Unusual first post: help required

Hi
Sorry I can't give you the standard height of the seat base as I have different seats but what I can tell you is that if your Father is over about 5' 7" and not watching what he is doing he could bang his head on the entry to the car (roofline). It's real easy to do and it hurts.

Hello there

Hi Simon
It's not only the rear arches that rust you really need to look at the underneath where the rear beam mounts as well as the sills and floorpans. you will be really lucky if you find a car now without serious corrosion in these areas.

Puma Thunder

Hi Steve Maybe after the big garage you could find "an old man in a shed" to do the repair work as it does look a nice car but finding a genuine one rather than a bodger is really hard these days. I would love to see this one saved but as per usual you have to look at cost versus return. As I said b...

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

Just over a week or so ago I did a couple of local shows with the Puma. Normally I would have doing them both in the Westfield but as the weather is so unpredictable at the moment. The first one was the Cliffe House show at Shepley which is quite a small one then the day after I did the Locke Park s...

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

Last week my Westy friend Des did a bit more polishing to remove the scratches from the roof and the top of the rear wings so the car is looking a lot better now. Here it is at Ford Fair on the Project Puma stand. https://i.postimg.cc/Mp7k2WnN/310720194142.jpg We enjoyed Ford Fair as per usual and t...

Removing the Bonnet Plunger from Ford Puma (Fiesta MK4)

Hi Mike Sometimes you can prolong the life of the bonnet switch by sticking things on the bonnet which makes the plunger go down further (no idea why but it works). If you want to replace the whole switch (expensive) you need to disconnect the plug to it which is under the slam panel about 6 inches ...

The BSA wheels are an Australian brand I think which is probably why there aren't that many sets knocking about.

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

Hi Paul Thanks very much for that. I try to improve it every year if I can but it's not perfect as most of the panels require buffing but that should get done before Ford Fair. As for the wheels they are made by BSA (not British Small Arms, another company) and Peugot fitment. Another contributor on...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Hi Ed
Instead of buying a MK6 Fiesta Diesel buy a 1.25 petrol instead. I've had a 1.4 Diesel and know the problems they have and the 1.6 has problems with the turbos as well. The MPG is ok and the 1.25 Sigma is unburstable if a little boring. It's my everyday car and it's cheap as chips to run.

Cheers Paul, yes most of the shows I go to are Puma-less other than mine apart from the Ford shows at Squires which usually have a few there. If you're not busy on Friday pop down to Thornes park in Wakey as there's the big early evening car show but I'll be there with the Westfield club so you'll p...

I went to a show at Notton today with the Puma and although I was sat with some Westfield friends most of the time the Puma got quite a bit of attention. I have noticed one thing about the people that look which is first the surprise at seeing a Puma at a classic car show, then a smile as they eithe...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Hi Ed I've occasionally had a look at your post and the problems you've had and wondered if you've kept the standard throttle body with the TPS untouched. It might be worth trying to fit that back on the engine rather than the mondeo throttle body but if you have removed the TPS from the original th...

Hi Paul
No idea of the cost as the first one is not fully completed and IVA'd yet but they won't be cheap and if you tried to buy an old original GP4 Escort you'd be paying a lot of money as well. Have a look on their website and give them a ring tomorrow.

window motor/regulator

If you use bolts they will catch on the carriage that takes the window up and down. When you find suitable rivets make sure that the squashed bit at the back doesn't protrude too far and catches on the carriage as a bolt would.
