Puma Starting Issue (WITH VIDEO)

She should first get contact and wait for a buzz of fuel pump priming itself to stop. So, key to position II, all lights are on, listening to ahnnnnnnnnnnnnn for a second or so until it stops. That is sign that fuel pressure in the fuel injection is as it should be and ONLY THEN she should be cranki...

Did some investigation on my engine. The bearings from Suzuki are OK-ish, but the problem is the starting dimensions. Suzuki did his crankshaft at 42.000 mm flat. Ford did his at 41.985 mm. The other thing is that Suzuki shell is 1.49 mm thick, Ford did shell at 1.505 or more. So the gap is to big. ...

FRP 591, FRP replica, plus turbo conversion project

Speaking from expirience: Puma engine is very, very balanced ex factory. All conrod-piston combos (with shells and rings) are within 1 gram, crankshaft is also very, very good. The one I am putting together was only by 2 grams out of balance. The only thing less then (almost) perfect is flywheel whi...

Hi guys, some smallish update(s). First regarding the pads. Now I am almost 100% certain that inside Ford box is Ate. They behave exactly the same. Nice stopping power, no noise at all, rather soft and producing dust. The discs are not wearing down at all, the pads are. For everyday usage I think th...

Possible wheel bearing issue

361201 On a side note, if you haven't had the front bearings replaced in your ownership or a long time I'd get them done anyway as it's a fairly inexpensive job anyway for piece of mind. It is fairly inexpensive, but includes dismantling the front hubs and that will need A BIG press. When I replace...

It should be some grease that is non conductive to electricity. I guess some silicone grease, most probably the same as used for sliding pins on brake calipers, would do

360879 I didn't know it was a Getrag one. Is IB5 also Getrag? Probably it has a rather large margin of safety as st180s with remap+exhaust+intercooler typically have 230+bhp and circa 350Nm. I think the same was truth about st150 where the ib5+ gearbox was supposed to not have great strength but th...

Getrag officially communicates 285 Nm as the torque capacity for that gearbox.

VCT sensor gasket

I am using a complete head gasket kit from ajusa. Same thing is still obtaineable from elring. I guess the seal is pretty standard stuff (semering) and finding one in matched sizes (outer/inner) would make it fit from any engine
