Great Job Rupert.

 

I'm glad you got all done and done right by the sounds of it. Keep us posted ho wit goes for you but if you used the correct torque settings on all bolts I cant see there being an issue with them.

You should be proud of yourself fella its a big job to undertake.  :)

In Topic: Power Steering Question!!

Thanks fellas, I guess its normal for it to be a little bit heavier but you would think as the cmax and the focus are practically the same setup the steering would feel the same on both.

Quite often in a tricky spot, rather than trying to use and angle gauge - if for arguement sake say the angle is 90 degrees, mark the starting position of the bolt and the bolt head after doing the initial torque setting, then mark where 90 degrees would take it, that way you are not faffing about with it.

 

Other than a torque wrench, angle gauge, cam pulley tool, locking kit and flywheel locking tool there isn't any fancy tools but certain tools really do help!

 

Again as I've already mentioned previously, if the crank bolt aint for budging (even do this anyway) then apply a bit of heat to it first and you will be suprised how much easier it moves.

 

 

Great advice stefan. You seem to know your stuff on this. Thanks.


In Topic: C Max Engine Rev Limiter

I have the zetec 1.6 focus the same engine that is in winwoods c-max.

I have not saw this red arrow but If i rev the car in 3rd say over the red line will it come up on the dash?

 

I never new that all cars now had a rev limited , is it just to save the engine from over reving and causing damage or what's its purpose?
