Hi guys , it`s time for some pic`s from the Escort mk1V6.
I have build this car 25 years ago , and in those years a have made same changes.
And in those times there was no interweb , so it was harder to find out what work best and also to buy parts , so things are more easy now.
And there was a APK/MOT change that did say that the amount of cylinders must stands on the registration , but that didn`t match so i went to the RDW a state institution for road vehicles to made that change , but to made this happen they charge 2000 gulden/900 euro becourse they want to do a complete test brakes , sound test and more , so i did think no way i don`t want to pay so much money and when the escort would fail during a test than you must change it and do that test again and pay again , But now it comes the importend thing there is a rule if the car is before 1-10-73 you don`t need a car type approval/road legal registration [ it must be save ] but that it , but they didn`t know/tell me this , so the car was standing still for 5 years until a met a guy that told me this , i think that it was JP so i did made a fhone call with the RDW and send them mine papers and wright them what the engine change was from a 4 cylinder to a 6 cylinder /weight and that i don`t need a complete test becourse the escort is before 1-10-73 , so i did get the registration papers back in 3 weeks with the change of cylinders but they didn`t change the weight so i did pay for a lighter car , now it total free becourse it`s a oldtimer/classic car.
Now i have made same changes with the brakes and the K-jectronic came out and the EFI goes in , engine mounts , crossmember [need also bit of changes] , fat alloy radiator , pedalbox [self made] witch i did made a little bit shorter to get enough space for the brake cylinder at the ingition lock/steering , and much more.[waiting on a vacuumpump/switch]
The engine must go about 10/15mm to the front to make space for the long EFI ignition house , so the fat 24V oilpan must come out and in goes the granada mk2 oilpan that needs little changes.
And after this is done we go to work on the EFI system and try to start it.
Maybe i wil put more power in this engine , but i have also a 4,0 OHV engine witch will fit if a can keep the inlet manifold low , becourse i don`t want to change the bonnet.
And put on some old pic how it started.
