Engine Done



Yes the engine's more or less done, it needs a few bits taken off so it fits in through the hole in the car & I'm STILL waiting for the vacuum hoses. It'll have to sit there for a while yet as the bellhousing won't arrive for a week or two.

Of course it's untested, so might be all pants when I try to start it, but it's a Zetec & they're almost impossible to kill, so fingers crossed.


As I'd hoped the throttle bodies & exhaust hide a lot of the orange on the engine block, so it's an orange hi-light, rather that "WOW - ORANGE"

Moving the coil pack under the throttle bodies & removing all the plastic helps with the vintage look, so it should look right at home in the late '60s styled car.
