Melina Blue Lux needs saving

Now sold via one of the rally pages on facebook, it looks like club motorsport will save most of the Pumas from extinction, fingers crossed

Melina Blue Lux needs saving

1999 Puma 1.4 Lux in Melina Blue An honest appeal to the Puma community to save this car from the scrapper. The forum rules ask for a price so lets say around £250? I am hoping somebody takes this on, in a few years time this will be the sort of car that people hope to find in a barn and someone wil...

Re: Rally Tripmeter drive/sensors?

The earlier Puma's with an analog dash were operated by cable, and the later ones with digital dash were electronic. I don't know anything about high or low pulse, but if you have a analog dash, it's all mechanical. Ah cheers, any obvious thing I should look for to tell me which is which? I am gues...

Rally Tripmeter drive/sensors?

I have just bought a Brantz int 2 tripmeter for the Puma, its a 99 1.4. Anyone any ideas on the best way to drive this, theres two options, a wheel sensor, which I would normally use, but as it has drums on the back, thats not really feasible. The easier option is a speedo sensor drive, now forgive ...

Re: My Road Rally Car

just to jump in and give a bit of perspective as I am a bit old and was around when the road rally rules changed, basically what you had was full group 4 rally cars racing around the lanes with very few restrictions, almost slick shod tarmac works cars, it was very very hairy, loud, bright (lots of ...

Re: Bucket Seat Mounting

Heres a question for those that have done it, IF you use the original subframes or the originl mounting holes with tailor made subframes, do you find your new seats to be generally lower than original? I ask as in my 99 1.4 I feel like I am sat on the car rather than in it on standard seats and I ne...

Re: Starter Motor replacement

Just been fighting with the starter motor on our 1.4, its undone but with the oil filter, dipstick tube and inlet manifold all around it seems impossible to slip it out without taking more stuff off, so before I do that anyone got any info before I start?

Re: New guy on the block, with a block story!

that I am not sure of yet, been more tied up with the engine, put my trust in the garage as they have an interest in cars (doesnt happen as much as you would hope) but I will get the info, I suspect its probably a mildly uprated OEM type item, but one of my kids has cost me too much money along with...

New guy on the block, with a block story!

Hiya Just thought I would relay my schoolboy error for those who may also venture that way. Our recently purchased Puma needed a replacement engine (we bought it knowing this) after I had priced for a rebuild at an eye wateringly close to £1000 cost, so I blundered onto ebay thinking if I got a 1.4 ...
