      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.

The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. newbie knowledge cram.

    ok cheers but what i was really hoping to use was a 2litre 16v fomr a mondeo or such like, as these are cheaper lumps and im always on a budget, plus even the frp puma engines take a fair bit work to get anywhere near the power im looking at, where as i allready have a few bits for a zetec 2litre engine, such as a bike carb conversion manifold, a 4 branch echaust ect, what sort of similarities do these engines have to the puma blocks?
  2. rear suspension

    sounds like that the top mount rubbers ( on the underside of the stur top) have seen their day, it happend on my polo, the fronts were about 1/4 inch from the top, i replaced the machpherson strut top rubbers and theyre fine now, the fronts usually have bearings in them so these may be worn aswell.
  3. ok hey guys im a newbie here, i dont actually own a ka yet, but i do have my eye out for one, basically being a bit of a petrol head im in search for something a little bit different, i know conversions have been done to extremes on the little hatch but im lookig for information on engines, suspension setups and anything else i should know about doing a conversion on a ka, which engines will go in with a slight bit of shoehorning, nothing stupid, i dont mind changing a mount or 2, but i dont want to have to spend £100's of pounds on fabricating new chasis legs ect, i know that its never going to be easy putting something big in, and i did consider using my current engine from my fiesta but i dont feel it will give ,me that WOW factor im looking for, just by reshelling it. any help appreciated. :P sammyt002
