SST 1.4

One of very few cars that actually left the factory with "SST" on the bootlid. With the money you saved buying this rather than the comparable 1800ti and twice the price, you can splash a bit of cash on tuning. Paul Johnson has the ex Steve Feay SST 1.4 that is pushing out over 100bhp, something to ...

I think you've done very well for yourself with that one!

SST H993WGF

After a bit of a scrub up, with the fuel leak fixed, and it running on the key. That's exactly what I was intending :lol:

SST H993WGF

Guess I will have to wait a little longer to tick the final Small Sports "SST box" in my ownership list. Pleasantly surprised with how the bidding went yesterday. A very positive indication that the prices of Small Sports are waking up, and it's very true what Craig said, we'll all realise their tru...

ss1 classic targa rally car

Lost somewhere in the project section is my SS1 1300 which I was tinkering with in a similar vein a couple of years ago.

The post here plots nicely the real world difference of head and cam combinations.

ss1 classic targa rally car

There are certainly a lot of badly "ported" heads out there. I take anything said by a Ford owner with a serious pinch of salt. "It's a stage 3 big valve head mate" yeah ok if you say so. Looks like a standard head with the port mouths gouged out to match the oversize gaskets :doh: A bit of work wit...

Ss1 roll bar or cage

I could be tempted into selling my half cage as it is currently surplus to requirement.

SST H993WGF

Few weekends work. 2011-12 difference.jpg Int b and a .jpg I suppose the difference is, someone like me has racks full of the right parts. Where as buying all the bits to make good outright would potentially be a costly exercise. Still. That bluebird turbo engine is begging for a big top mount turbo...

SST H993WGF

If you thought the eBay pics flattered it you clearly didn't look hard enough! Par for the course innit? Looks no worse than I was expecting, and to be fair with things like the trailing arms, what's a bit more rust when they need refurbishing any way? Depends if you want an SST as a minty show car,...

ss1 classic targa rally car

I wouldn't be so quick to decry the OE cooling fan Phil. In my opinion it's far better than most cheap ebay type direct to core offerings. It may look like a small "fan" but the blades are steeply pitched and they certainly seem to shift the air. It's hardly a piddly little motor in there either. Wo...

The sump can be done in situe by jacking the engine up as high as it will go.

The CVH is a bit of a harsh engine, not sure there is much you can do to improve that!

As for the fan, not sure why you are blowing both fuses, but if it's drawing a greater current then a relay is the answer.

1990 SS1 Netherlands

Bit steep, but not wildly far out. Would want to know where the door cards have gone, but otherwise looks like a complete and unmolested late galv 1600. A clean up would do wonders I'm sure!

Out and About with JOAN

I think there is something very refreshing about seeing a 5 series GTE with tidy styling cues in a soft clean and subtle colour.

I see JOAN very much as being brisk and tidy thing, which seems very in keeping with the driver.

SST H993WGF

Well, it's pushed beyond what I was prepared to go to so I'm stepping out of the bidding! Now to get on with nattering. Firstly. This is 10 minutes from the family home in RG10, and I have even had tyres fitted at one of the units in the background. I can't believe it has (presumably) been lurking t...

No comment?

Well, you are the first to comment.

Could have given us a better title to go by!

It's Steve Baldwin's "Castrol" 1800ti.
