My Puma (formally pictures at last)

Hi Richard,

I'd be interested but PP nowadays doesn't have much action. I think it might be better to post in the FB Puma owners page and Puma track day page. They are reasonably active and there might be some people interested in the splitter.

Cheers
Alex

Project Plus 100CC (1.6 to 1.7 swap)

A small tip for rounded bolts is to weld a nut on the head of the bolt and then unscrew using the nut.

I'm not sure about the connector for the fuel pump. But you DON'T need to drop the tank. There's a connector going under the rear seat but I don't remember if it is for the rear ABS or the fuel pump.

Project Plus 100CC (1.6 to 1.7 swap)

For the loom you disconnect the two rectangular big plugs in the engine bay fusebox. And also the two small rectagular fuses with two fat red cables going in each of them. These are the cabin loom connecting to the engine fusebox. You replace the whole engine loom + engine fusebox from the donor. Th...

Hi PVB507. I think you have posted to fb group also. I have made a similar engine swap (1.4 to 1.7) which was also my first swap. Very straightforward. Feel free to ask anything (it's been some years since I've done it but I remember some things.

Hello from Spain! 1,7 Puma Project

The FRP wishbones are just normal wishbones cut in two pieces and having an extension welded to them. Typical Ford bodge job!

Hello from Spain! 1,7 Puma Project

Welcome aboard Guille. I don't know about the airbag steering wheel but the wishbone FEA and kinematic analysis is impressive. I would like a set of normal puma adjustable wishbones.

IMHO I wouldn't want to mess with the PS. One of the best features of the puma is its steering. It's quick, precise and with nice feedback. Especially if you drive newer cars with EPAS and then dirve the puma you immediately see the added feedeback its steering has so you can judge accurately the av...

Thank you!

Yes it seems the weight on this list might not be so accurate. I have to open a thread for my car. There are some examples of supercharged pumas in the FB page.

Unfortunately I didn't weighed mine when I had them out of the car. But according to this list each one seems to weigh 24kg together with the sliders. Having lifted them with my hands I'd say that I'd agree. They seem very heavy. https://www.projectpuma.com/viewtopic.php?t=13838 I also have PS and A...

It has evolved nicely. I have also removed the under carpet sound deadening but have installed again the carpet. I like the car to have a bit of "clubsport" look. Have you also removed the deadening in the bulkhead area? This weigh a bit. Also regarding the weight of the car does your car has still ...

Bucket Seat Mounting

With sparco subframes (it's actually the same as the FRP has) and side mount Cobra Imola without runners the seating position is a bit lower than the OEM at its lowest setting. So maybe a quick solution is to not use runners.

Hi Paul, nice project you have there running. I also like the ST. As I have a set of kw coilovers which are similar to APs I have a question. Did the rear ones come with two half nuts or one (full height nut)? The order of fitting is spring - top cap - top mount - nut -chassis - cap&nut (over the ar...

My Puma.. Maximum Track Attack!!

Nice to see progress with this car! How do you feel the 17inch wheels compared to the 15inch ones? I have both the oem 195/50/15 and a mo5 set of 205/45/16 (2.3% bigger radious). On the road the 16" seem a bit more sluggish (bigger radious and heavier rims) but the car feels a bit more eager to dire...

I just wired it into the existing plug using a couple of spade connectors. In the oem fan there are two pair of wires going to the fan. One goes to the centre of the fan (high fan speed) and the other pair goes to the bottom and right of the fan (low speed). I was basically asking in which of the t...

Hi a few pages ago I saw that you went for a slimline fan. I want to do the same as I'm in the process of supercharging my puma and the oem fan gets in the place. How did you wire the new fan? Because the oem is 2 speed and the aftermarket one are usually 1 speed. Do you get rid of the resistor and ...

Dedicated Track Car Progress Thread

The mount which the gearbox hangs from is notorious for changing shape because it has gaps both from the upper and the down area. This has as a result the gearbox fouling the lower strut brace. These gaps could do with a bit of windscreen glue.
