NEW phone number, retro Ford, welcome's you to the UK's number one resource for Zetec and Duratec rear wheel drive conversions.
The Zetec flywheel has larger holes for the crank bolts (11mm vs 10mm) than the CVH flywheel, plus you'll need the Zetec flywheel as it has the timing marks for the crank sensor built into the back of it! .
You will also need the spigot bearing for the first motion shaft to run in; It comes from the.8 Sierra. .
You can either go to an ECU supplier to provide a ignition only ECU for a few hundred quid to use the existing pickup and coil pack, or to get 95 there, you can use the igntion system from a late CVH Mk4 Carburettored.6.
His videos utilize a wide variety of high-horsepower one-off vehicles, and he's just unveiled his latest, a 1978 Ford Escort.

You put it together, you can fix it!The water pump inlet, however, is considerably larger that the CVH one which calls for a reducer, or use a Zetec bottom hose which splits the pipe to the heater hose, then reduces to the normal CVH pipe dimension.Originally available in 105 and 130bhp (OK, PS) versions, we has to wait until the Mondeo came out for the.0 litre version. .The Escort will undoubtedly star in its own upcoming Gymkhana video, but in the meantime, take a look at the video below to watch Block get acquainted with the car in a way that only he can.
Mondeo - The.8 was"d at 115PS (as were later Escort Si and GTi models and is a tweaked 105 unit. .
