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

Nice one Barry.
You're like an Ambassador for the Puma, keep on getting it out there mate :-)
I was at Doncaster classic car and bike show yesterday with the mini, there were literally hundreds of cars, loads of Fords of all ages but not one Puma :?

Looks like a nice job on the door handle mate. Does the colour match up OK? It's hard to tell from the pic.
Is Squire's Ford meet coming up soon? Give me a buzz and I will see you there for a catch up.

Various 1.7 bits

I have for sale a selection of Puma parts which I removed from a '99 Puma 1.7 which had covered 74k miles and was a good runner before suffering too much bodywork damage in a spin off. Was going to ebay these but thought I'd put them up here first.... TAPE ECU with transponder ring and keys £50 Inle...

Full length of rear struts

Full length of rear struts

Hi Barry, I assume you mean without the spring, so shock absorber extended to its full travel?
I have some new ones in the garage. I will get some measurements later.
On a similar note, has anyone got a couple of old rear spring top plates kicking around? (Not the top mounts,the top spring seats)

It's too big Barry, was looking for about 50mm. Sorted now though.

Hi all my fellow puma owners!

362163 Hi Lewis Good luck with the Eibachs as I think they may be out of production and like hens teeth. Barry Quite a few sellers advertising these kits new on ebay but don't click and buy, you will most likely have to go through the hassle of getting your money back. The sellers don't stock them,...

Yes, be careful on those tyres. they're brilliant in the dry but can be a bit twitchy if you push too hard in this weather.
Suppose I'd better update my profile and avatar then :-(

FRP Air Box

This makes a lot of sense.
I assume having an intake plenum like the FRP makes the resonator do nothing, removed by Tickford as part of the engine mods?

Changing a coil pack

Very easy if you have the right tools.
I think it's an 8mm hex socket for the 4 mounting bolts. You'll need an extension bar, there's a couple of tricky ones.
Apart from that it's just unplugging the HT leads (remember where they go) and the coil pack connector.

Just done a service on our 1.6 today including fuel filter replacement. Was still on the original but not quite as bad as yours.
I had done the oil change and the engine was quite warm . It started straight away, sputtered a bit, and then was fine.
