My girlfriend potential owner Puma 1.6

:grin: good luck with the search, it sounds like you made the right choice.

Also to add the 1.6 is not the collaboration with Yamaha, that was only the 1.7 unit, the 1.6 is the same unit as in other Fords of the time and should be a reliable engine still if it has been properly maintained.

Rear brake conversion from drum to disk. And now a grinding noise once after pulling away

Where did you get this kit from? I don't recall HiSpec doing such a kit for a Puma and their website does not list them in their models.

I'd be checking that the kit was indeed for a Puma, it's a bit suspicious given the incorrect handbrake cable length.

It runs along the lines of heat shrink around the pegs and bolts through to strengthen it up.

Parcel tray

No change. There is a thread in the FAQ section about parcelshelves and how they can be adapted so they don't fall through.

It's to do with the flex in the pegs and their thickness.

Hello from Holland!

Welcome, are you planning to replace the engine later on?

I think it's a bit of a risk taking it to the ring with big end bearing issues, isn't it expensive to get recovered from there?

Welcome to the site Matthew.

Good luck with your purchase.

Oils leaks could be from a few places, you'd need to see it to know for sure, however the most common place is the rocker cover gasket.

We don't normally encourage opinions on for sale threads, however if the rust is minor then maybe it's worth looking to get the pipe repaired and selling it running?

Ah that makes sense, well I'd say it's quite a niche tool in that I wouldn't expect many DIYers to be looking for them for single use, more likely a trade. eBay would give the biggest target audience in one hit for all of the applicable vehicles so would be my choice. It's probably a useful bit of k...

Seat Replacement

Depends on the year of your car. Thunders had the later floor pan, so if your car has the later floor pan it should be a simple swap. If you have an earlier car then it's still possible but the top hats are different I believe and the seat belt tensioners would need swapping. There's plenty of infor...
