Fitting FRP Piper cams issue

Thanks for the reply!

I've double checked using a vernier/caliper gauge and it looks like FRP tool I have is 2mm too think on the exhaust side.

The standard tool I have fits so I'm going to crack on with this:-

Fitting FRP Piper cams issue

Hi, I'm in the middle of fitting a pair of new Piper FRP cams to my 1.7 and I've hit an issue. I'm not able to get the FRP timing tool into notches at the end of the camshafts. It's almost as is the tool is a little too thick. In the attached pictures you can see the issue i'm having. 20200530_14275...

Ford online parts

Thanks for replying!

Haha, I've used exactly the cereal packet approach for the throttle body one which was missing from my motor.

I may just try the same sealant that's on the sump.

cheers again.
Ben.

Ford online parts

Hi,

Where do people use online ford parts these days?

I used to use Foray but they've moved on a few years ago.

I'm after the gasket that goes between the block and the breather housing. It's pretty much the only thing I can't find!

It's ford part number 1008056.

Cheers,
Ben.

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

I've a Mk5 Fiesta 1.4 TDCI as the family bus.

It's done 165,000 miles so far, just needed a clutch and a couple of sensors in its 17 year life.

Oh and religious servicing! :grin:

Rear demister connector tab

Thanks for the offer. I managed to repair it (bodge) flattening out a spade connector then using conductive glue. 8-)

Rear demister connector tab

Hi,

My rear demister tab on the drivers side is missing. Does anyone have one for a small fee?

Possibly the smallest parts request ever!

Cheers,

Re: Track day noise info

JimF, It held it's own for most of the circuit, the only bit I felt it need a bit more grunt was down the Lakeside Straight heading into Island bend. The 2 litre cars were pulling away a bit, but you'd catch them up on the second half of the lap. I'm planning on FRP equivalent cams and a remap which...

They are great. Not too much silencing at full whack though, your head is still nicely droning after 20 minutes. :grin:

Track day noise info

If it helps anyone who is stressing about noise levels........

Yesterday I did a day around Outlon Park in my Puma, it measured 84db on the static test.

I was running a Sportex 4-2-1 manifold (unwrapped), no cat, race pipe and a standard rear silencer from eurocar parts.

Cheers,

Ben.

Re: Setting Gear selector issue

Thanks for the replies. I'll give it a bleed this evening and see what happens. With hindsight I'll second 'tuonokid's' advice! It's tempting to remove the selector to give yourself more room when removing the original cat. Putting the four branch in is a doddle compared to removing the humungeous O...

Re: Setting Gear selector issue

Hi, Right..... I've checked the gearbox fluid and it's good, 1cm below the filler hole. If I disconnect the gearstick from the box and put the box into third it still crunches when I let the clutch out. (All on axle stands!) 1st, 2nd and reverse are ok. Should I be able to run the car in 3rd, 4th an...

Re: Setting Gear selector issue

Cheers for the replies. My plan of action for this evening is to disconnect the selector and put the gearbox into third. See if it still crunches, if it does then check the fluid level in the box. If it still crunches then maybe time to cancel the track day on Tuesday. Nothing like a deadline! :?

Setting Gear selector issue

Hi, I've recently put on a 4-2-1 manifold and had the gear selector disconnected. I was getting some crunching in reverse when letting the clutch out after re-fitting so have tried to adjust it.
