    Ford Puma 1.7 Oil Filter

    But some oil filters have non return valves and some don't, I'd be wary about fitting anything that wasn't listed for the Puma.

    Boot lock seized???

    I have read on the Facebook group of people having to keep trying the WD-40 for several days, I was fortunate that mine started to work within about 15 mins of turning the key both ways.

    Boot lock seized???

    Workshop manual?

    Very good, I've no idea how you've done it. Its a pity we can't host this type of file on here, as there is a lot of useful stuff on the Facebook group, which I've downloaded. On the other side, the "How to Guides" on here are really helpful and I and others have shared them to the Facebook group.

    Workshop manual?

I used to use a different name to access a Facebook account, so you could try that. As I was into classic Mini's, I registered as Austin Morris ! There are a lot of Puma related...

    Spotted, Oxfordshire today.

    Spotted today, a Medium Steel blue 1.6 Puma on the roundabout at Chipping Norton (A361/A44 junction) reg. no. MT51WVM, heading towards Long Compton. I didn't see it myself, but apparently it was very tidy. Anyone on here ?

    A common area to leak oil on the engine is the cam cover gasket, but it could be any seal or gasket. I don't have an FRP, but I had my 1.7 serviced by Chris Allison at , who takes the engine and gearbox out and does a very thorough comprehensive service and now...

    Advice for repainting propellor wheel centre caps

    I'm not a great fan of Halfords, but their rattle cans are not a bad match and they stock Moondust silver, which I've used on wheels with reasonable success, when finished with clear lacquer.

    Gaydon Gathering Tuesday September 12th. 2023

    It's very straightforward to book, it runs from 5pm until it finishes, earlier now it's getting dark earlier . We normally park on the left as you come down into the car park, backing onto the grass, with the Banbury Classic vehicle Natter group, as Kevin and myself are both members.
