Update time...

This is how the engine bay is looking at the moment. (removed my strut brace yesterday) With its little 1600 tucked up all nice and comfy.......NOT FOR LONG! hahaha








Ok engine swap update....


Day 1:



Me and my grandad started at 8.20am to get cracking on the car. Got the front end off in a few hours.






EXCUSE THE BLURRY NESS I GOT OIL ON MY PHONE CAMERA :S





Once everything was unplugged and what not we got the car inside and started the serious work:



Made sure everything was unplugged and disconnected (making sure to mark anything special) Also removed the driveshafts.

Engine was then lifted out and the car rolled back outside.



Think i need a new AC rad lol...





Thats the 1600 in the air on the winch. Its now on the floor with the 2.0 ready and primed.


Tomorrows task is to get the offside hub off to removed a stubburn ball joint bolt (and replace with a new part from ford) sort out the new 2.0 ecu and wiring and generally clean up all areas of the bay ready for the new install.

Okie dokie!



Todays progress was exactly as expected.

Went and bought some bolts from ford and picked up a new offside wishbone (came to a grand total of 29 with all the bushes) from euro car parts so that was good.

My grandad bolted all those on.


While i sorted the wiring and gear cables...

Can anyone tell me what this black box is with the red button on top? Is it a fuel pump reset?


Anyway only a few pics... Nothing major...

Bit of ECU wiring...



2.0 gearcables installed



So that was that for today. Wirings in and the 2.0 ECU is in. Gear cables are in. New drop links are on along with a new wishbone.





Tomorrow is 1.6 exhaust off and the ST170 one put on (cat back only) then we will see about putting the engine in


DAY 3...and some very positive progress!

Started the day by removing the rest of the 1.6 exhaust system... turned out to be a right ar*e ache because everything was solid. Got it off eventually and replaced with the ST170 system...







Then finished up the last bit of interior wiring and putting the interior back together.









Then the guy from DHL dropped off my ST170 power steering pipe. So we got that all bolted on.



Then things were looking like this....









We then started to move the car and engine closer together until this happened





Then by the end of todays stint things were looking like this..







Gear cables are connected (and the gearbox is operating which is nice) Started connecting the loom and hoses (not to each other mind)

So good progress today. Trying to take as many pics as i can. Hope its an enjoyable read...

Thanks for the comments guys! I cannot wait to fire it (which should be in the morning)

Ok update time..


Painted driveshafts in..





Checked the position of the decat pipe Can anyone tell me if the lambda sensor wiring goes down the front of the back on the engine on a 2.0?



Then sorted the last few wiring bits out using the trusty haynes manual diagrams... trouble is with a second hand loom that parts can be missing or hidden. Thats all sorted now.



Got all the hoses connected and topped up the coolant and power steering fluid.







Tommorows list...
- Sort a problem with the inlet vacuum tomorrow (we now have the parts to do this so thats not a problem)
- Pop the decat pipe in with all the gaskets.
- Engine and gearbox oil.


THEN WE CAN TURN HER OVER.....

So basically yesterday was spent making a 6mm plate to fit between the manifold flange and the decat pipe flange. The bend in the decat just (and i mean it was barly nothing) touched the driveshaft. After a few hours machining and grinding the plate was finished. Had to pop to ford to pick up another 170 gasket. Bolted it all on and it fits perfect. Plugged in the lambda sensor and that was all done.














Then we moved onto the rest. Filled the gearbox with oil...it took ages to fill too..... but we got there in the end. Got the engine filled up.

Then it was run time......... Popped the key in and turned once.... thankfully the imobiliser was playing ball (as i thought this might be a problem area) and all the lights came on... Thinks were looking up. 2nd click and the fuel pump sounded which was also a very good sign.........3rd click she held on the starter motor for about 10 seconds then fired! I was extattic. There are a few problems at the moment. The fans are on pretty much from startup....anyone know why this would be?? And also i have a battery light on even tho my volt gauge is showing a good charge (13.7v at idle and 14.1v when the fans cut in)
Ill go into more detail in the engine section:
http://ffoc.co.uk/modules.php?name=F...390084#2390084

Ive got to pop back to the workshop today to put the bumpers back on and tidy some bits up then its time for a drive i think. Ill pop all the pics up later on. Thanks for all the support guys...

Ok this is how shes is sitting now..... All finished...

Just need to sort out the fans (in need of a cylinder head temp sensor)









She is now ran in after a good 3000 miles.. Fantastic fun to drive due to the lack of TC or ABS lol


Enjoy!
