Early and late 1.7 fuel pumps

359556 Cheers for replying Ian. I'd love to future proof mine by buying and storing a new fuel tank but it looks like I'll have to wait for more info. Barry Barry, Did you find some more information already about a possible difference? Never noticed there were 2 types. I have a 2000 car fuel tank o...

Many thanks Zinc. Most of the welding was done together with my beloved father, it looks 'easy' but welding in this quantity requires good skills. The car is saved from the scrapyard now :grin:

Puma from Belgium

Drove the car some more today, it's so fast compared to my other Puma! I wonder how this difference in power is possible. It has the same engine, same year, it's just the same car and standed still for years. It was much less well maintained, and yet it is much faster, especially in acceleration. Lo...

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

Good job on the MOT Barry :-) . And damn, I allways thought it was not recommended/unsafe to drive with only coilovers on the front. I might try the same thing, since a lot of knocking is often cause by the rear coilovers and their stupid upper mountings. I really think the back is ok with only lowe...

Usually I don't like spoilers on the Puma but this one comes out nice actually :-) like the black lights too, something different this one. I would change the wheels too, why not nice shiny silver props? It's all a matter of taste though. Gj

With some delay, managed to finish the inside of this puma. Did all the welding, rust proofing and sealing. Arches are all done, need some good body filler and decent paintjob which i will not do myself. http://i1168.photobucket.com/albums/r488/TylerB2/20170311_145302_zps0mewpoi9.jpg http://i1168.ph...

I know most people would just scrap, but it very easily designed, the whole front comes off in one piece with no more then 6 bolts (think what a job this would be on a Puma/Fiesta!). It's actually my gf's litlle car so we're happy it's back on the road. TG player: Lol, I can't deny it is a really so...

Puma is allmost ready for MOT! Removed the strut braces, original dampers will be soon on the car. I hope it passes from the first time but I don't see a reason why it wouldn't. Sadly, I had a crash with our daily Polo past week! Rain combined with freezing temperature made the road more like an ice...

Finis codes.

I saw this but it looks like it's only for dealers.. I should have made print screens of it all and turn it into a pdf. I was planning to do so but sadly I did not yet. Surely I'm not the only one around here going to have trouble finding the right finis codes now. Anyone who can help?

That's sad! Let's hope it's just some kind of temporary maintenance. Is there any way of getting/buying the catalog somewhere?

I never had any issues with rattling heat shields, but if needed I would also take out the carpet to repair properly. Are the existing fitting screws broken? Can you not just attach the shields with larger washers to them?
The more I see this colour the more I like it, great Puma.

Rosty Puma 1.7 transformation in Lambo

Very nice repairs man, i also love the seats they look awesome. Not sure what to think of lambo doors on a Puma but it sure is creative! Can you fit the wings without problem to the car with those door struts? Great effort and details, curious to see it all together. Thumbs up

FRP #032 The beginning...

As long as there are no holes in it or you can't slam a screwdriver through the metal you don't need to weld it. Not on this location at least. After brushing and a first coat of convertor, wire brush it again with much force to get rid of even more rust. Put over another coat of convertor, you shou...

FRP #032 The beginning...

What Barry said^ Best thing would be to sandblast it all but that's quite impossible so wire brush it is the best option. I never used Jenolite but it should be ok. Personally I have good experience with Hammerite rust neutralizer (is very penetrating) covered with some layers of Brunox. But there a...
