No special gasket, you can put in two O-rings for the openings or cut your own gasket if needed.

Ed,

Replacing IAV - 5 min
Replacing VSS - 15 min (the battery and it's carrier have to go out)
Replacing MAF - 5 min
CV boot - that is a pig of a job as it is messy big time....

But the first 3 you can do on your own without problems...

IAV has to be somewhere on inlet manifold downstream of the throttle butterfly.

VSS is on top of gearbox and can't be relocated anywhere. But now that you have said this about cold start and not idleing at all, this is almost 100% IAV that is clogged and seized.

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

On a cold start, if I don't rev the engine it'll stall. When I let go of the accelerator coming up to junctions - it'll stall. It's a pain to be honest, and quite dangerous having to try and brake and accelerate whilst in neutral to keep the car going. OK, this is new diagnosis and this points to I...

On a side note - is there anywhere that sells headlight seals for the upper part of the headlight? Mine are sagging. J said it could be glued back on and one of the lights looks like it had been repaired in the past. Ed All is written. You just need to search for it.... https://www.projectpuma.com/...

I got the driveshaft seals just in case. I'll just ask him to fit them. Tempted to do the same for the VSS.
Check the wiring first! And connectors.

Regarding cleaning: use brake cleaner and all the oil will be off in seconds. Regarding the engine issues, is your timing right? There is a special procedure for setting up the timing tensioner, is J aware of it? If he just bolted the tensioner without following the pin procedure (plenty of info her...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Well if it leaks while the car is stationary, it is not the breather. It would be spitting oil only on usage. Thsi would indicate the J diagnosed it correctly as failing driveshaft seals (what would imply to me that he was well aware they were od inadequate quality/condition in the first place). The...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

J said he thought it might be the drive shaft seal. I recommended what you said too. Don't think it is a seal as the frontal area of gearbox is covered in oil. On top of the gearbox is the breather that enables the gearbox to 'breathe'. It shoud allow for the air to circulate, but not the oil. If i...

torque settings

If you are talking about the bottom ladder, use two stage torquing. 25 Nm all of them and then all of them to 50 Nm.

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

I haven't noticed earlier that you have put in new cams. Camshafts should bed in at highish revs. The engine should be kept at 2500 rpm for the first 15 minutes or so constantly. That way you have the highest possible oil pressure and enough oil supplied to the lobes and tappets. You should avoid id...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Honestly, this sounds to me like something misaligned in clutch-gearbox combo. The bearing would whine, not produce metalic sound like this. Has gearbox been taken apart? Is there enough oil in it? Also, what is the state of gearbox mount? Maybe it has sagged and the gearbox is touching something. I...

My Puma.. Maximum Track Attack!!

It was also the first chance I'd had to test the Whiteline rear ARB in the dry and what a difference it made, getting the car rotated was so much easier and the rear end was happy to comply with what ever steering input I made, no sliding around just grip, grip, grip and more grip! Glad it was such...

Regarding the gearbox. Difficuilt selection of first: have you tried adjusting the selection rod? The proper proecdure is this: jack up the car. Put the gearbox in neutral. Detach the selection rod from the gearbox. Put in the gearbox selection rod that the handle selection mechanism bolts onto a sc...
