#247385 Tyre Puncture

Posted by james_60 on 28 March 2013 - 01:55 PM

The Reason for not repairing them on the last 3mm or near the edge of the tyre is when the tyre is squidged about and around corners it could pop the repair out and then your back to square one.

#136982 Fiesta 1.25 Or 1.4 - Petrol Versions

Posted by james_60 on 22 July 2011 - 06:27 PM

Both the 1.25 and the 1.4 engines share the same bore diameter.

The only difference to make up the CU is the Stroke on the 1.4 is slightly longer.

The 60ps and 82ps 1.25 engines have a 71.9 mm Stroke and a 76.5 mm Bore Diameter
The 96ps Engine has a 76 mm Stroke and a 76.5 mm Bore Diameter

The 1.4 PFI Sigma 96ps engine has advantages over the smaller 1.25 engine.

According to Etis the 1.4 engine is equipped with Port Fuel Injection whereas the 1.25 has Electronic Fuel Injection.

Now According to my knowledge Both are electronic but the main advantage is that the 1.4 has its injectors closer to the inlet ports on the engine.

So to Summerise, There are two Main Advantages for the 1.4 (1388 96ps) (Maybe Three)

  • Port Fuel Injection which is also Electronic
  • Slightly longer stroke (The Length of travel in MM that the piston has to move (Verticaly) inside the bore of each cylinder)
  • It could also posess an altered or different throttle body
I hope the Class has not fallen ASLEEP lol :blink:

Port Fuel injection has advantages :-

A type of fuel injection with at least one injector mounted in the intake port(s) of each cylinder.

Usually the injector is mounted on the air intake manifold close to the port.

Port fuel injection improves fuel distribution and allows greater flexibility in intake-manifold design, which can contribute to improved engine breathing.

#95954 Flip Key

Posted by james_60 on 04 September 2010 - 05:41 PM

Hi Tone

As simple as it sounds it is not.

The new Key would have to be cut as you have said.

It would also need coding to the imobilisor on your car/van

Key and codeing you are looking atleast at 100
