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

Took the Puma for it's MOT today and it passed with flying colours, even the dreaded emissions test but I had to get the cat well warm and it was great to see the red numbers on the screen scrolling down until they went into the black. The CO was nearly up at .4 and the lambda 1.009 before they coun...

Cheers James, it was just surface rust and after all they've only done 4000 miles.

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

Not done much on the Puma lately as I've finally got the motivation and time to do some more work on the Westfield I'm building {not my blue one) but found out the other day that my local garage might stop doing MOT's soon so booked in my Puma for this Wednesday. All the lights etc are working ok bu...

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

Hi Will Yes this is the second Puma I've stripped for spares now as I reckon it's the only way to keep a modern car on the road as a lot of the electronics are one off to that vehicle and will be completely unobtainable in just a few years time. As far as the glass availability goes apparently rear ...

Just had a thought, does the new box have a fixed shaft at the back of the engine as that would be a good place to mount a trigger as there is only rotary movement on that.

Hi Sinisa The trigger wheels I've seen are usually quite light duty so to weld those to the flange of the driveshaft would be quite difficult but i'm sure you could epoxy them on but is there room on the inner flange because the flange is quite recessed down into the gearbox and there are strengthen...

Hi Sinisa I think there would be too much movement on the driveshaft to use a trigger wheel as the sensor gap has to be spot on. On my Westfield it drives off the inner flange of the driveshaft which uses alan cap heads to fasten the shaft to the diff and does not move up and down with the shaft. Ho...

Well it's been nearly two months since my car turned a wheel but it seems to be holding up pretty well after Rob's (Robyorks) good advice about the regular use of polish. This years summer has turned up a couple of strange things though. The first one is the alarm sticker on the drivers side window....

Hi James
I was going to add my photos to this but it looks like my old phone has run out of dates and reset back to 2011 so all those photos I took on Saturday including your stand have gone!

Hi Sinisa
From memory the cooler pipe has only push fit with spring clip fittings which would suggest that it's on the low pressure side. If I remember I'll take a look tomorrow.

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

Hi Alex Air leaks on the intake side are pretty easy to diagnose as when you rev the engine up the revs hold for a little longer than they should before returning to normal so I'm pretty sure that wasn't the problem but it seems alright now and as a 1 in 2 year occurrence I'm not particularly worrie...

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

Hi Alex Tickover means idle ie the engine running by itself at low rpm. It does seem better now I've replaced the engine coolant temp sensor and I've already cleaned the MAF and checked the plugs but I suppose time will tell. The car is off the road at the end of this month and won't get used again ...

Clip that holds the front mudflap on

They are the same ones for the MK6 fiesta (2003-2008) and are still available, from memory there are eight in the full set to do all the flaps.

Hi Alex It's not particularly the occasional EML light that worries me as the cause behind it, and I could tell a few weeks ago that the tickover was ever so slightly off so there was something not exactly right with it. The p0420 code indicates a faulty cat but it could be lots of things so it's ju...

Hi Mate
Possibly a cheapo ebay HCV. The genuine Ford one is the only one that works and lasts. The only other thing it could be is the heater control panel but still more likely to be the HCV.

Hi Alex I have an intermittent P0420 code which has only come up yesterday 2 years after I fitted a new Cat. Before with the old second hand FRP cat I used to get it about 3 or 4 times a year. I have turned the EML off using Forscan and it's ok now but I'd like to get to the bottom of the problem. T...

Fun Autosolo Puma on a budget.

Good luck with it and well done at the event, oh and if your car is a later 2 lambda sensor one you can get some more speed out of it by removing the torque limiters in the lower gears. Have a search on here as it involves something like disconnecting the speedo or speed sensor.
