Installing the Zetec engine

This set of pictures shows how I fitted the 2.0 Zetec 16V, from a 1995 Mondeo GLX. It was mated to a five speed Quaife gearbox (with ATB LSD), with AP Clutch and diaphragm, with a Dunnel lightened steel flywheel.
If I win the lottery, I'll buy a Burton Race Engine, like this one How to identify the 2.0 engine; look for '20' on the block, and the engine number starts with NGA. The engine, straight from the breakers yard. Yes, it really does fit! Timing belt cover removed for inspection The 1800 Escort Zetec sump, with the channel for the engine cradle to fit through. The old 2000cc Mondeo Zetec sump My front engine mounting, using a gearbox rubber mount. Clever eh? Engine and five speed box ready for fitting Engine and gearbox raised in to the car for the first time Engine, four speed box, and new Escort sump I've modified the chassis to allow the water pump drive pulley to run from the crankshaft, using a toothed-belt drive system, developed by Aldon Automotive The servo has been moved to the right, to clear the ignition pack on the end of the cylinder head. Another picture of the modified chassis rail. Retaining strength is very important when modifying the rails The engine cradle, with slots cutout to clear the cooling fins in the gearbox The engine had to be raised into position, with the five speed box, to see where the chassis needed modifying for clearance Not much clearance between the water pump pulley and the chassis. Neither the waterpump nor the crankshaft pulleys are retained, but the chassis still needed modifying The lightened 1800 flywheel, which apparently weighs 5KG lighter than standar. Inlet manifold, for 2 x 45 DCOE carburettors Closeup of the port in the manifold, showing the taper down to the cylinder head port Picture of the engine bay Relocating the cradle mounting holes Relocating the cradle mounting holes The engine stabiliser bar Drain the oil, and move the engine on to its side CAMS locked in place, and timing belt removed Crankshaft windage tray fitted as standard on the Zetec ARP rod bolts ready to be fitted Old and new (black) rod bolts. Note difference in length! Bearing cap removed Crank bearings look good considering the mileage Shell bearing also in good condition.
