Some of you may know I’ve owned a s1 now for ehhhh along time

lots of water under the bridge I decided It was time to get her back on the road

after lots of money and time she started again on Boxing Day

Thank you gents

She has Always given me grief from the day I bought her
I am amazed how much money stuff costs for them

I needed a sensor which had sold out across Europe. I ended up getting it from America. I could of got another car for what it cost

The RS Monica has a lot to answer for….poxy Old Ford’s

if the focus goes the same way and we can’t get parts this is not going to be a fun old age.

Cheers you lot

water pump sounds a little rough , I did cam belt and tensioner thinking the water pump would be ok

Next item to do before I really leave her running

front brakes are back on with new stud and nut kit
Rears next

need to find a gear knob and a battery
Clamp before I move on to ripping my shed apart to find the other bits I took off

moving house wasn’t conducive to parts relocation lol

I’ve only ever changed the tensioner

but it’s not sounding good.

I’ve changed the starter to a transit Connect version. Wow that’s a difference

I’m not really a picture person but I may add a few to show how I’m going on

It was a slippery slope back then

by the time I’m done she will be about 240 which is plenty

yes it’s the mf2 it’s a blue injector
I’ve got old pic of when it had the noz on it

I still have the bottle in the boot as I’ve left the purge kit In.
ive plumbed it to a spray bar on the intercooler

There was a company back then called Ava they built them

it keeps the turbo in the same place but the lengths are more equal compared Tothe cast original version
(Probably makes no difference lol)

I had the metering head modded for more but I only got to 210 back then

there is probably more that can be done now but I’m trying to keep the mods for the retro ness of them

it has water injection/meth aswell
