      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. Ford Focus 1.6 Shim Order

    Hi all, Well our cambelt change went wrong on a 2001 Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec SE (topped)! The crank pully bolt cam loose and broke 8 vales (new bolt was used)! The head was sent off to be repaired and all new valves have been fitted and skimmed and re shimmed and a new head set has been fitted (being fitted) I'm no mechanic was just helping out. Can anyone please confirm to order that the shims go back on? We had to take them off to bolt the clyinder head down and was to double check they are all back on in he correct order. I under stand there are two rows, one front (inlet) marked 'I' then number and rear bank marked 'E' Many thanks
  2. Which Water Pump

    Doing the cambelt on out 1.6 2001 Zetec focus over the xmas period, might as well change the water pump. Have gone with Gates belts (cambelt, AUX), INA tensioner and rocker cover, but is QH a decent brand of water pump? Genuine Ford to expense otherwise would have gone with that. thanks
