  1. Would you how much would it cost for a puma conversion + turbo
  2. I was hoping to lean more towards a 2.0L 170 focus engine so I don't have to tune it as much Sent from my C5303 using Ford OC mobile app
  3. I had the same problem with my 1.25, when I took the water pump off all the teeth on were practically gone, so should try looking at that.
  4. What engines would my MK4 Ford Fiesta
  5. thanks, but no need I took the inlet manifold off last night and the valves are bent, it'll just cost less to get a new engine.
  6. Ok, how would I be able to carry one of those out. Thanks for every ones help, it is much appreciated Sent from my C5303 using Ford OC mobile app
  7. The first post was because the bottom bolt wasn't tightened properly, but that is now tight. I then retimed it so the piston was at the top and the camshaft things were poking up like in the picture and it still wont fire up. What do damaged valves sound like?

  8. how do you tell if its on the right cycle. I think I locked the crankshaft using the timing pin.
  9. I put Piston No1 in TDC and the cam shaft so I could slide the setting bar in place. I also replaced the tensioner and the belt. So with all that done I put it all back together and followed the Haynes manual word by word and constantly read back what I done. So I went to start it and all the cogs are turning as they should, there is petrol going in, it coughs once and no rattles. Personally, I think its not getting spark.
  10. Hi, I just replaced my cam belt and turned the engine over, it started up fine, then the top part stopped spinning, but the bottom half was turning fine. If anyone with any sort of knowledge know about this I would soo grateful, Thank for your time, Glen

  12. Hi, Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately the gearbox went yesterday so will have to put everything on hold for a while. :(
  13. Hi, I'm thinking of getting Remote Locking for my MK4 Fiesta 1999 v reg. It already has central locking but I don't have the Red Master key (I'm trying to track it down). Would anyone know how much Ford may charge to fit the remote locking with or without the master key. Thanks for your time.
  14. Hi, I fitted some front leather seats from a 2001 Puma in my 1999 MK4 Fiesta, and when I put every thing back on, e.g. the battery and the airbag plug from the seat to the seat, I started the engine and the airbag light started flashing. does anyone know what's wrong with it thanks
