GAZ GHA322 Ford Puma/Ka Coilover Set Brand New

GHA 322 is a Sierra / Escort Cosworth 4x4 coilover kit, if they are still for sale it might be worth double checking as I would be interested in them if they are for a Puma / GHA 345.

1.7 Valve Spring Platforms / seats x8 urgently required

Hi, on a well used (oily) cylinder head, these are barely visible in the head, my mistake was that I hot tank cleaned the head and it sat for a few weeks, when I looked down the tappet bores upon starting to reassemble it, I noticed clean aluminium on some and the spring bases on others, hot tank ha...

1.7 Valve Spring Platforms / seats x8 urgently required

Hi, Im on the South Cheshire / North Staffordshire border so a fair way from you. These are specific to the 1.7 engine, they sit in a machined recess in the head that is the same diameter as the seat - 25mm. Strange as the 1.25 , 1.4 & 1.6 engines have a combined valve stem seal and seat where on th...

1.7 Valve Spring Platforms / seats x8 urgently required

Hi matti, These sit between the lower face of the valve springs and the aluminium cylinder head. It does mean you will need to remove the head and then use a valve spring compressor to remove 8 valves to access these bases. One point worth mentioning is that on a well used (oily) cylinder head, that...

Recent work on FRP76

What brand of head set do you use on rebuilds? Genuine Ford? or can you recommend a pattern set? Mate in the trade can get me a pattern set but if there's not much in price difference I'm going for the Ford one.
