F1600 Rallycar [WIP]

I would try to find an engine mount, the part that bolts to the engine for 1.7 (I am sure Ian G can help you there) and try bolting it to your 1.6 engine. There is good chance it will fit and then you can use the normal engine mount for 1.7

Rear brakes.... I use the Fiesta ST150 rear's, can't remember if/how much wider track it gives though.


They widen rear track by 10-11 mms on EACH side totaling 20-22 mm rear track increase

1.7 Rev Limiter

SandStorm wrote:Qr Bbpost We all know these 1.7 are awesome. But I notice it is very easy for the car to hit the Rev Limiter in 5th gear.
Is there a way to increase the Rev Limiter to 7000/7200 like in the FRP?


It certainly is! Contact Erroll Williams (pumanoob here) who can do it for you....

Caliper carrier bolt length?

flame80 wrote:Qr Bbpost Thanks Ian that's a great help :grin: I'm sure I read somewhere that the ST150 bolt was slightly too long and they had to use the original Puma one, I wasnt sure what the length of either of them were.


True, I had to use the original puma bolts. The ST150 were to long!

Penelope the pink puma

Having once seen a photo of (deep sigh) Aston Martin Vantage in pink nothing comes as a surprise to me anymore... Still, not my cup of tea, this puma in pink.
I like the Pink Panther cartoon and that is as far as my affection for pink goes....... :?

Ford Puma 1.7 from 1998 European Emission Standard

Frank, I admire your spirit. However, I am affraid only the paper counts. I know how they emission test here: they plug it in and check whether it COMPLIES with STATED emission standard. They just check good or not good. No mention of the ACTUAL emissions from the car. So, if the car is homologated ...

Ford Puma 1.7 from 1998 European Emission Standard

366140 Hi all, Does anyone know if my Puma is actually EURO 2 or 3 and how can I prove it? Thanks a lot for helping saving my Puma :'( The easiest way for you to confirm the emission class of your puma is to look under the hood. One lambda model is Euro2, twin lambda model is Euro3. The other way o...

365849 My thoughts with this car are that I might at some point purchase a 6 speed gearbox from a Fiesta ST180, and see whether it could be persuaded to fit in the whole left by the IB5 (anyone any thoughts about that?) - my reason for considering that is because at some point in the next couple of...

365749 So let me get this straight, I just pull the handle towards me, and it should pop out.. It is tight fit. I would heat them up a bit (especailly given they are in garage, from what I picked up) using haidrier as they are rather old and replacements are NLA from sparco and the with some wiggli...

How about spliting the plastic tube in two halves and just connect them with a 60 degree elbow? Some sealer at joint and voila!

Nice car indeed! The only thing that stands out is rear track that is just to narrow IMHO in stock. Rear disc conversion puts that right!
But I like the colour and the looks :grin:

No need for special tools. Just be careful when dismantling the electromagnetic cluch: there is a spacer for proper operation. Everrything else is easy. Don't clean internals as you'll be needing the oil inside. That is special oil and add some (cca 20-30 ml); the rest will be suplied when regassing...
