What use are long feeler gauges?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Paul Sheridan Dec 24, 2015. 2 Replies

For work I recently acquired some long feeler gauges for poking into joints in building cladding systems. They don't need to be accurate for this just thin and flexible. My question is. What is the…Continue

"Depends on which version of Zetec you have as to what the differences are regarding camshafts. The mk1 (silvertop) 1.8 medium output 115hp had different cams to the 1.8 high output 130hp. the mk2 value (blacktop) 1.8 120hp replaced both the mk1…"

"According to this site: http://www.zetecinside.com/xr2/zetectune.shtml  the 130bhp models use a different camshaft.  I dont know if it is higher lift or longer duration"

"Zetec cam question. I have a 1.8 zetec RKC engine 115bhp and have now got a set of 130bhp cams. The question is are the inlet and the exhaust cams the same? Or how do I know cam to put where, or are they both the same? I know that I need to get the…"

Q42 CPF - Progress

I thought it was time I logged the work to returning my Phaeton to the road

2011 - Car bought.  Not having been laid up for many year the car was going to need some restoration to get it back on the road.

2012 - Spent time wondering about changing from Pinto power.  Bought various V6…

Ecu & Induction Advice Please

Posted on April 23, 2014 at 21:12 2 Comments

I see my options as 

1,  bike throttle bodies' aftermarket ecu - expensive

 2, keep the Jag in take and use X Type wiring loom and ecu, think this is related to the Ford EEC V ecu - cheap solution but the ugly intake might have to poke out of the bonnet

3,  Fit an ST 24 intake, cable throttle body and aftermarket ecu.  

You thoughts as to the best solution please

Out with the Essex V6, Duratec V6 is the future

Posted on January 11, 2013 at 21:39 46 Comments

The Jag S Type 'box arrived today.  It must be half the weight of the Essex V6 4 speed, I could lift the Jag 'box with one hand (just about).  It is a lot more compact than the Ford Essex 'box.  Also it is 5 speed (hopefully if it works).  Until this arrived I was still unsure which way to jump, stay will the Essex or go Jag AJ V6 (Duratec).  This 'box is so compact and light, it has to be the future.  I know this will be a challenge as I know nothing about engine management, but it is time…

Project Hunk of Junk - Essex Advice Required

Posted on October 7, 2011 at 22:04 2 Comments

I am due to collect another Essex V6 block in a couple of weeks and then while building up a decent engine, I plan to use the old worn block to figure out how to work out some engine mountings for my Phaeton S2.  Does anyone have any photos of an Essex in a Phaeton?  Ideally in a S2 and showing the mountings.  Noticed the build manual (PDF from the DOC web site) suggests using Transit 2.0 mounts on Ford V6 engines.  I assume this would be the V4 transit not the pinto.  I found some V4…
