You guys crack me up, i like boobies tho ;)

The spec sounds absolutely epic! What power are you pushing then?

Also, how does it handle?

Get it mapped properly ASAP. Engine longevity is all in the tune. (and keeping temperatures low under the bonnet!)



Power wise, erm, i don't know at the mo. Dont want to guess either. It has the power too push poo out from my behind when i floor it!

Havent had a chance to drive it properly out on the road, only up and down my road, so not to sure what she handles like, however when the guy took me out in it it stuck too the road like sh*t too a blanket and it was pissing down. (he's a race car driver, i dont think he had any fear of death lol) I have got the option of my avos if i need to.

Mapping is on first priority, but need to get a correct size air filter and sort the possible breathing problem. See viewtopic.php?f=4&t=23551

Then a oil and filter change. Current filter is a halfords one hhhmmm. Im sure it will love some valvoline oil too.

I fitted my leather interior today. Makes the car feel mine now.

Didnt get any pics tho!!

Some special person didnt know how to jack it up at some point in its life. When i went to view it i noticed that it looked like it had been put on a 2 post ramp, but they had lifted it by the floor as on drivers side rear, the floor had been pushed up and split open. So part of the deal when i bought it was that the floor was welded up on that spot, (it would of been MOT failure otherwise). That was all sorted, but when i had all the interior out today, the drivers front floor was pushed up as well. Thankfully not split tho, so i hammered it out, all is good.

Floor pan is pretty good, average for a 20 yr old fiesta. Starting to rot, but cant see any problems for years too come.

Great to see that my project is still alive and strong, thanks so much for the kind words too guys :)

If there was any way that I could have feasibly kept this car, I would have in a heartbeat - times are hard and as a father of two with a house to pay for and my wife only doing part-time work, I had to let it go :(

Seeing these new pics of it have made me happy beyond belief - I am more than happy to help out the new owner with any tech info they require (and buy it back if I come across some sponds! :lol: )

All the best, Jim Eshelby. ;)

Yes, it truely is an animal. The time and effort that you have spent building this is unreall.

Welcome too the forums. Were a friendly bunch :)

I presume you got my message on ft? I do have a couple of minor questions.

Ive just been reading your build thread, (never had a chance too read it properly) but got too page 33 and ft has decided it dont want too work!

I really need to go to bed! Work tomo...

Sorting out breathing issues:

I posted this in technical:

Quote:
I see this has been asked tens of times before, but everywhere i look... different answers.

I need a deffinate answer. However this is on a 2.3 duratec turbo.

This is the current set up on the car, i dont think its right.

Image


What i think it is on the escort rst. (which i have now found out too be correct as per baileys set up instructions)

Image


What i think is right for my setup:

Image


If what i think is right, is right, it could be the reason why its trying to push oil out of the seal for the dipstick tube and another leak because its not letting pressure out of the crankcase.


After taking the breather pot out and cleaning the inside, as it was full of a mayo type substance, as if headgasket was knackered, i shine a light into the breather to sus out exactly whats what. Heres how i determined it:


Image

Basically, in simple, what should happen (i think this is correct, someone please correct me if not) it breathes oil vapour into the top two pipes, hits the baffles, oil should drain out the angled bottom pipe to sump, and it should vent out of the pipe that comes straight out at bottom. Technically this is the highest point. Not like the 1st picture above that it was set up like.

What i think, and what explains the next few pics... getting a bit of condensation in breather (water/oil not great mix) its breathing into the pot then trying to drain via the front breather. basically choking itself because its going like this in the block to breather pipe:

Image

Image

PCV valve:

Image

Hope what im writing is making sense! The return too sump pipe is bone dry and doesn't look like its ever met oil. But of course it couldn't, unless the pot was completely full up, in which case it would of been choking.

So the "what i think is right for my set up" picture, i pretty sure is right.

Anyways. To get too all this is a pain, powersteering pump had too come off, to take inlet manifold off, to get to breather.

On a good note, no gunk in the breather. Seems blocked at pcv valve, cleaned the valve up ok, seems to be operating ok but gonna get a new pcv valve to go in, no point in taking it all out without replacing it, just in case.


And:

Second note of the day:

The turbo is extremely close to the brake linkage bar. I'm sure read in jimmy build that he had quite alot of clearance.

Was only an issue when it didnt have the rear engine mount bolted in because the engine rocked, as such, and sat in a position where it was very close. This in turn would cause the downpipe to sit down low (which it is)

Now im wondering whether the rear engine mount is shagged. Really need to get it too my work and get it on a ramp! But will have a proper look at weekend when breather/manifold/pas pump are back on and can move it!

He said it was close and needed looking at iirc. But there should be clearance. Good luck getting your head round the custom mounts though, pretty ingenious from jimmy!

Good shout on the pot thingy. Does seem confusing but if the escort one is that way, it'd follow this one would be similar.

Bloody hell that looks a mess. I love how you are sorting this car out properly and not just leaving it/ignorning it. Once all the little bits and bobs have been sorted it should run beautifully, and be rather quick too!

I have a cosworth bailey breather on my car, and it does sometimes get a build up of moisture in the breather and pipes, just condensate really

Image

the 2 top fittings are from the engine, the one that loops round is fom the crankcase breather at the front of the engine, the small one from the rocker cover

The angles one at the bottom is for the return to sump, and the other fitting on the bottom is the breather/overflow, I have this piped in going to another catch tank with breather fitted , so that if i do manage to fill the bailey braether with very hard cornering, ill catch any surplus oil taht comes out the breather fitting ( its never caught anything , other tahn a little condensate)

Hope that helps a little

Gotta do things properly, otherwise it comes back and haunts you!

Got a new valve today, and seal that goes from the block too breather unit. Gonna whack them on in a bit.

Cheers for the pic Dalsy, confirms how i think it should set up. Are you not running a cambelt cover? Or was it just off in that pic?

Mini update:

Shes had a oil change, new bosch filter and shell fully synthetic oil. Old oil came out mank!

Im on the hunt for a decent sized air filter (KnN, green, pipercross - if you have one for sale let me know, must be in good condition) The current one i put on it is just not big enough!

Took her for a spin today, even though its not 100%, the power is unreall. Ive never seen a speedo go round so quick!

I did feel extremely on edge though, felt like i was gnna get dragged off the road, especially on acceration, as if the wishbone bushes are shagged. I can't help but notice in jimmy build thread he put new mk3.5 PAS wishbones on it, but im suspecting there not the right items, maybe somewhere sold him the wrong ones

Jimmys pic:

My comparison pic:

Image

I think they look like the non-pas arms? I had an issue like this before and turn out too be this. I think new wishbones, and put my avos on that way can set the height so it doesnt eat tyres.

Yup, they be tilting back. I would strongly suggest some rose joints though. You need something beefy for this beauty!
