FORD FAIR – SILVERSTONE – 6TH AUGUST 2017
Join us on the Ford Owners Club stand at Ford Fair, Silverstone on Sunday 6th August 2017.
Hi all, Well our cambelt change went wrong on a 2001 Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec SE (topped)! The crank pully bolt cam loose and broke 8 vales (new bolt was used)! The head was sent off to be repaired and all new valves have been fitted and skimmed and re shimmed and a new head set has been fitted (being fitted) I'm no mechanic was just helping out. Can anyone please confirm to order that the shims go back on? We had to take them off to bolt the clyinder head down and was to double check they are all back on in he correct order. I under stand there are two rows, one front (inlet) marked 'I' then number and rear bank marked 'E' Many thanks
Doing the cambelt on out 1.6 2001 Zetec focus over the xmas period, might as well change the water pump. Have gone with Gates belts (cambelt, AUX), INA tensioner and rocker cover, but is QH a decent brand of water pump? Genuine Ford to expense otherwise would have gone with that. thanks
