I dont think I will need the clocks or the wirring for them. You only need the aerial around the ignition and the plug. You will also want an obd2 plug from under the steering. You could nick this from any ford of the year. I took mine from a 2001 mondeo and it cost me a quid.

No real progress due to work and the scooby needing some attention.

I still need a cheap engine.

If you get yours installed with all the bits let me know and you c
an be guinea pig. I will make you a loom and you can test it.

Some progress.

Saturday. Having read off a local builder building a jig to chop the sump. An email was fired of and a quick ride across town see the top of the sump snipped of perfectly square. He then gave me the idea of building the short end up and running it back under the jig to make it square and equal to the rest. so another ride back an hour later, Thanks Martin .
The bottom was mabe out of the last of the steel from the locost floor.



Sunday. Having been dragged around Primark this morning I escaped to the garage after tea. I chopped up two pick up pipes and mocked it up with a fuel clip. When I got it where I wanted it I thought I would just get the tig out and join it up. Then I decided I would cut of the bracket and weld it on for suport.



Being nagged to come in, I thought I would just tack the bottom on, I got carried away and welded it around.
There is still one pin hole in the mig welding but the tig weld is good to go. Then I can test its oil tight.







Progress may get a little slower as ive taken on another wiring job that was offered a few weeks back, vag 20vt on a dta into a vw Caddy.

There is one pin hole in a mig weld where three corners meet.

I just need some time and some better weather to crack on again.

Need to finish the Dta/1.8t loom by next weekend so will be after that.

Some progress....

Work has steadied up but that just means the wife had me do the garden

So I've

Cut up and remade the loom.
Cleaned up the engine.
Cut and shut the sump.
Replaced the leaking cam cover gasket and grommets.

I've made up the alternator kit

I've cut a set of plates out of 6mm plate for the engine mounts.

I've now got to mount it to something. Getting closer.

Nice work !!

Eventually, do you know if your sump goes lower than a Zetec Short Sump ? (raceline for instance)

I am not sure about the race line but other silvertop sumps like the scholar engines and dunnell are 165mm. This one is 150mm as recommended by others.

No point in going lower as the gearbox will be sticking out below the sump.

I know of a little green car you can mount it to if you struggle to find something!
