Right, after 188,453 miles my ford has encountered a problem.
The water pump is leaking... and as you may know on DOHC engines it is a really hard job to fix.

So i think it's time to get a nice 2.0 mondeo engine.

Question is, who lives near me and has the knowledge and mechanical skills... and an engine lift :) Would be able to help me put one in?
Also for how much?
100 - 200 cups of tea? :P

Im a level 3 mechanic and just down the road :) If you can supply the engine and all the bits needed for the conversion. I'll give you a hand doing it. Im sure i could get an engine lift too if i ask some people nicely :) Ive only done a few engine swaps before - on focus's mainly. But they are pretty much the same if not a bit harder. Silverlakes would be your best bet, or have a look on the net for a low milage complete engine. Silverlakes do charge a fair bit sometimes...
