Retrofitting recaro seats **HERE WE GO AGAIN**

Yes if you use the original seat pretensioners the light should go out but the trouble is they don't match the mounts on the seats as there is a stop as well as a thread holding the pretensioners where they need to be and the position of the stop is reversed on the different pretensioners. If you ha...

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

Not done much with the Puma over the last few weeks apart from cleaning it and taking it to shows but I did a Idle control valve reset on Forscan as the idle didn't sound 100% right. https://s19.postimg.cc/5zgqcj7ir/210820183802.jpg I was hoping the photo would turn out better but the green ticks on...

Retrofitting recaro seats

You might also have to swap the seat belt pre-tensioners over as well which is a lot of work but, hopefully, if your car is early enough you will get away with it

HOW TO: Change cambelt on 1.7L 125hp engine

Just change the remove the water pump pulley before taking off the drive belt as it's much easier to take out the water pump pulley bolts with the belt in place as it clamps the pulley from spinning.

Hi Sinisa
Just to let you know, the panel you worked on is known in English as the slam panel as it's what the bonnet slams against when it's closed.

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

I found out that on one of the headlights I'd repaired (with Robs help) that the motor wasn't working so I had to swap the headlamp unit and lens over. https://s19.postimg.cc/u45v2bixv/310720183782.jpg That fixed it and I went out later on in the dark and the adjustment looked about right. When I ge...

Hi Sinisa
Well done mate, I've taken off two sets of front wishbones now and on both sides there has always been a seized bolt. I'm trying to work out which is hardest, grinding out the balljoint rivets or sawing off the wishbone bolts that are seized

Smacking your head on the bonnet edge

It's usually the roof for me getting in or out. I've learned from this now but it still catches my son out now and again.

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

Rob and I did another reasonably local classic car show on Sunday at Walton near Wakefield with the Pumas. This was only the second year of the show (I was there last year as well) but it was a good show and well attended. Our Pumas looked well and attracted a fair bit of attention with one guy even...

Hi Sinisa
It's ok you didn't offend me at all and I understand that things are sometimes misunderstood in another language. If you wrote to me in Croation (Croat????) I wouldn't have a clue. You might have to buy Rob a pint when you eventually meet him, though :grin:

Hi Sinisa
As far as I know the 2K that Rob uses is the same stuff as what professional paint shops use so they should be good for now. They certainly look good even though I haven't polished them yet but I suppose time will tell.

A big Thanks to my friend Rob (Robyorks) on here for kindly clear coating my headlight lenses as they now look fantastic even though I haven't polished them yet.

Hi Charlie
I've just bumped it up to be the post below this. You will also need to read and understand Gates technical bulletin \036 for setting the tensioner but just google that.

Hi Charlie It took some finding this one but eventually got "misfire detected" at the start of a P1380 description. My guess is you may not have done the cambelt change successfully. Did you follow Ford TIS instructions, replace both the crankshaft pulley and VCT pulley bolts, tension the belt with ...

Speedo stopped, engine cutting out

It's above the gearbox more or less to the rear of the battery tray and as Paul (DOH) says it's a big black plastic plug.

Hi Martin I bought some Oetiker clamps but they ended up being the wrong size so I ended up using the screw clips at the tank and regulator ends and the twin eared clips where I'd plumbed in a tank drain. Once the ears of the clips have been clamped with pincers it's impossible to get them off witho...
