Ive bought a 2.0 zetec to put on my mk1 escort. Im using a retroford rwd sump, standard crossmember fitted in the standard location.
I have fitted the type 9 box and put the engine in the bay. Ive bolted the gearbox crossmember up so that the hole on the tunnel lines up.
By fitting the standard crossmember, the sump is hitting the steering rack and the back of the sump is ridiculously close to the crossmember. Also my water rail is up against the bulkhead.
Ive bought a brand new worldcup crossmember with lowered rack mounts and now the sump clears the rack. However the sump is very much touching the crossmember and the water a rail is again touching the bulkhead.
I have had no luck since classic ford, blew my pinto up on the way home and I spent a lot of money on this zetec setup and ita frustrating the hell out of me. I just want to use the bloody thing whilst this weather is here
Big sob story hah
