Morning All..

Has any one got first hand experience of fitting / running a Zetec which they can offer some advice on please?

What are the challenges when fitting?
What are the things you'd not expected?
What are the easy things to overlook?

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Give Rob a call at TMR Supplies, he will give you all the advice and help you need, and supply any parts if required.

True, Robs the first port of call, will help you, advise you, and sort it for you at a fair price.
We got most bits off him and did the work ourselves.
Depending what chassis you have the steering column can be a problem. Easier if your column is on the fence side.
TMR sell engine mounting brks. Engine goes straight on existing bell housing.
You need clearance behind the engine, may have to move the firewall back.
Exhaust is on opposite side. It's possible to cut the flanges off a pinto exhaust and weld a TMR flange on.
If using a side mounted fuel tank, best to locate it opp side to exhaust.
Use existing pinto carb but re jetted. Lots of different ideas with jets.
Things not to overlook.
Need to fit a needle roller bearing for the spigot shaft.
Need to drill 25mm hole in bell housing near flywheel sensor.
Water pump revolves the wrong way, need a reversed impellor, or idler pulley.
Need to go up a diff. ie if you normally use 3.89 you may need 3.77. which defeats some of the cash saving with an escort axle.
Things not expected.
Have to learn how to drive it to best effect. Power band is different.
Uses more petrol.
Fast enough on Shale.
Initial cost is quite high, Brisca bits, sump, water pump, exhaust, tank, bits and bobs.
But over a couple of seasons you should be well in pocket.
Probably forgot some of it, just ask if you need help.
