    Hook Norton Classics 14/07/24

    This morning we had just 3 Puma's at Hook Norton Classics meet at the brewery. Kenzo_K brought his Red Puma along for the first time and his car received quite a lot of attention. There were several hundred other cars there and it was another enjoyable meeting.

    "A Symbol Of Everything Wrong With Cars Today - 1997 Ford Puma".

    The average age of Puma owners is probably higher than most of what people think, last year the show manager at Gaydon museum said he thought at the time, that nobody over 40 owned a Puma, as his son owns one, now he understands, the 2 of us there on Tuesday evening were both over 70 !

    Locking Petrol Cap Maintenance

    I had to dismantle one to change the barrel. I would recommend some 3in1 oil, as WD40 can evaporate and the problem will return.

    Bearings fail one after another..

    I was not aware of that information, so thank you YOG. Wheel bearings can be a problem, as there a lot of cheap ones around, and they can be fake, even stamped with SKF or Timken, on my Fiesta XR2 based kit car, I was changing rear bearings every year, then purchased a set of old stock...

    Today at Stow motor show

    Just my Puma at today's Stow-on-the-Wold Motor Show , the other one who was going to join us, (Kenzo K), decided quite wisely that it was too wet, which it was really, but the sun did come out in the afternoon.

    Introducing Rouge One

    Be great to see you at Gaydon for the Old Ford rally. I used an Elring cam cover gasket when I had the Thunder, as oil was filling up around the spark plugs. I spent a lot of time cleaning the 2 surfaces and used the old school trick of using petroleum jelly to hold the gasket into place...

The Medium Steel blue Puma is on 66k miles, not used during the winter and always...
