I purchased my Westfield Seight (Rover V8) kit back in 2016 from a chap who had it sitting under covers unbuilt for 10 yrs. Car came a with a brand new short block, so while building I added a slightly hotter cam and went for full fuel injection. When finished, it was around 205bhp at the wheels, which was pretty lively in a car weighing in at 670kgs. One issue I had early on was cooling, there are two headers in a very small engine bay, and the maximum frontal area of the radiator is limited to around 11 inches, which quite honestly is too small for a mildly tuned V8. Cooling while the car wa ..read more

I Installed a Davies, Craig Electric Water Pumps on our 1929 Model A Ford Speedster

  I was building our Model B engine with a Vintage Riley 4-Port Head, I realized that I had a problem finding or repairing the original Riley Water Pump. I had thought that the Riley used a Model B Water Pump (I’m smarter now), and while the Riley Water Pump looks similar, it is much larger than a Model B pump. The Riley Pump core was good but finding the parts to rebuild it would be challenging if not impossible, and I would still be using an 88-year-old water pump and nearly a 100-year-old cooling technology. My next option was to use a modified mechanical water pump from another vehicl ..read more
