Rosty Puma 1.7 transformation in Lambo

I want to keep the doors as they are now, but with added possibility of height adjustment. My driver's side door is little low, The hinges are welded now so no adjustment is possible in that way.
Ta in advance,

Puma running rough?

I didn't think the actual block had anything to do with aircon setup but I could be wrong? There were definitely different blocks throughout production and different ECUs but it was my understanding (never tested) that you could do a like for like swap of the actual engine The casts are all the sam...

Puma running rough?

The engine is knackered,no compression on cylinder 2. where is the leak? On piston or valve side? Try to pressurise the second cylinder and watch where is the compression going. If it is the sump, it is the piston/rings that are leaking. If it is escaping to inlet, it is inlet valves, if it is goin...

Rosty Puma 1.7 transformation in Lambo

Hi Rost, if you could give me some information i.e. detailed pictures regarding the hinges of the door? I am on verge of converting them to something adjustable to set driver's door a bit up.. Just to be clear: I am not thinking about lambo doors, just installing some height adjustability into the e...

Big end reshelling

You misunderstood: I said (actually, Mahle did) that you can use pretty much any pistong ring, but NOT a chromed one. So that is the one you should avoid.

Hope that helps

adjusting door height

Ressurecting an old thread: has anyone tried actually replacing the hinges on bodywork? They are welded alright, but how about cutting them off and then drilling and tapping some holes for the bolts? That would make the door adjustable in long run...? The area that the hinges are welded to has to al...

Piece of cake. Just get the steering wheel audio controls and you need alpine modul for matching ford controls (i.e. Mk1 focus as that was the donor vehicle). The modul comes with all the wiring and it is very straighforward

front seat belt replacement

For that you will have to take down the back trim. There are How-to's on the subject. But, be practical about it: if the belt is dirty in the area that NEVER gets pulled out, it doesn't make any difference, does it? You will NEVER see it and you will NEVER use it (that part, I mean). Your problem is...

front seat belt replacement

No need for replacement. Wash your belts. Take a bucket of warm water, pull out the belt as far as it goes, clamp it at top to prevent being wound in and soak it in the bucket. Drop some good garment detergent in and stir and leave it for at least 30 mins. After that, wash the belts by hand. I used ...

Have you remapped the engine? I am asking because now it may be running lean with all the air flooding inside? If it is lean, you might burn the pistons and exhaust valves :?:

Cleaning inlet manifolds

You seem to forget that disabling any of cylinders whith it self brings keeping the valves open to reduce the compression work. It is not a matter of simply shutting down an injector as you would still have all the losses in the engine and have to make the remaining cylinders work harder

After some time finally did something for JASAPP. The ball joints were very lose and the steering wheel had some vibrations over 120 km/h. So today replace one after work as I ran out of daylight and time for the both of them. The other will be done tomorrow.. https://i.imgur.com/VciPzvz.jpg It was ...
