Got the Zetec running for the first time last night. Doesnt run to bad just need to balance the carbs and set up the idle mixture. Also found a small oil leak from where the cast alloy part of the sump bolts up to the block.

I still have the Quaife diff to fit which I reckon will be bank holiday monday rolling road is booked for the 7th September

Well a frustrating weekend Evil or Very Mad after the initial startup my plans yesterday were to getthe carbs balanced and reseal the rear edge of the sump. Sump reseal went well and moved onto the carb balance I noticed that once the engine was warm it was a bit smoky. Utterley pissed off I gave up and decieded to go through the drill this morning. Head gasket tester first the proved to be a negative so I removed the spark plugs. The plugs from cylinder one and two were soaked in oil I removed the inlet and exhaust manifolds and found the ports on these two cylinders again saturated in oil. Left with no choice I pulled off the cylinder head and can feel noticeable play in the valve guides on the Exhaust side of the head Crying or Very sad

Given the cost of these engine its rendered this one scrap there is no point messing around having the head sorted I may as well find another engine and drop it in. Unfortunatley that means im going to have to pull my entry fo Snett.

Not to Bitter as this is the chance you take with £100 engines some you win and some you lose.

Bad luck mate, on ward and upward. Are you going for another 2lt engine or have you considered an 1800, there is a big group of 1800's in in sports specials.

I was battling with some of the 1800's so they are simular pace, engines are a lot more easy to come buy as well.

I have driven both and I love the punch of torque that the 2 litre has. don't get me wrong the 1800 revs well but you know how it is Twisted Evil

I think I may have obtained an ST170 motor but TBC

Not to bad as there are numerous kits available to purchase some relatively inexpensive others not so ! but there is now another option to doing the Delete. Motorsport Electronics who make the Nodiz that controls my ignition make a little box called VVT Pro which as the name suggests allows the user to program and control the VVT. Nothing but praise out there for this little box of tricks so I need to have a think but obviously once I have confirmed that I have the ST Motor.

Do the st170s fetch strong money compared to a blacktop 2L ?

Surprisingly not I have had my prospective purchase confirmed I've just paid £300 for 80000 mile unit with 3 months warranty. Blacktops range from about £100 to £450 to £1000 for a new unit.

Ive elected to go with the VVT controler as this should give the best spread of power and torque I not expecting the engine to be mega powerful if it makes what it should (170ps) I will be happy

Well Engine No2 now resides in the Engine bay. After the disappointment of the first engine poorly state I decided to eliminate any area of doubt whilst installing the new engine. So I bit the bullet and lubed up my flexible friend and bought a Raceline Sump. Very impressive it is to.

The engine is in the sump is on. The alternator is fitted . The clutch cable is fitted .The cooling system is fitted all that's left is to fit the VVT Controller and the carburettors and Exhaust. Anybody want to pop round and turn the key for me please. Rolling Eyes

The engine install is pretty much complete now. Just got to work out which wire feeds the oil pressure sensor light. Then sort out the throttle cable.
