      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hello I have a Focus Mk2, one of the first produced in December -04. Now I have a leak between my PS pressure line and the union nut at the pump site. I removed the old nut (witch you’re not supposed to be able to remove) with my angel grinder and a lot of patience...(half an hour). Bought a new nut (3F656-6742740, the same as where fitted from start, 3F656-4747355 is too long and won’t fit) witch I screwed into the pump by touch. I don’t have a torque wrench at the moment. Then I pushed the pressure pipe into the nut. Bent the bracket back and fastened the last bolt. With the accessories belt back on and oil in the reservoir I cranked the start motor (without the sparkplugs) and a beam of oil came from between the union nut and the PS pressure line . So the o-ring inside the nut is obviously not dense. Does any of you have any tips or ideas of what I am doing wrong, what I can do otherwise? Have any of you done this job and did you do it like this then? 211-02_Removal_Installation_1.pdf 211-02_Removal_Istallation_2.pdf
