Defo change waterpump, they are 45.00 in motor factors, i just paid 27 quid for a new one off ebay :) if the waterpump goes, the cambelt has to come off if i remember rightly to change it, and for 45 quid its nothing.

Just make sure you get a Fiesta 1.6/1.8 Zetec waterpump for it, as the mondeo one spins the wrong way round !!

Get a cambelt kit and tensioners too for it!

:)

You can use mostly 1.6 items if they are good working order as follows:

Alternator
Starter
Power Steering Pump

Use the 2.0 Oil Pump but put a shorter CVH/HCS oil filter on it.

Im buying a new clutch for mine.

New Sump gasket for when you take the sump off, new inlet and exhaust manifold gaskets, the crankcase breather pipe, take that off and either replace it or clean it like i did.

New Studs and nuts for the exhaust manifold, theres 8 - 10 i think and they are pretty rotten when you take them off so ideal to replace them to avoid snapping.

Just woke up so can't think of much more.

Well ill be fitting mine soon, and im a fussy bugger, everything i do has to be right otherwise i won't do it at all, if somethings got to be replaced new ill replace it, i won't go ' oh it will be okay '.

Just ask if theres anything you need to know, when i first even began to think of a 2 litre i nearly gave up the idea straight away because i didn't know where to start, but once the lumps sitting in your garden theres no stopping you :devil:

well picked up the donor car yesterday ( for 2.0L conversion ) but unfortunately i am not going to have time to do the conversion before FITP as i first hoped :cry: , now that i have more time i am going to spend some time on the engine give it a lick of paint, new water pump , oil pump and other things

with all the money i have spent on it getting the body work done and making sure she is running right she wont be lowered either for FITP

on the other hand my new cossie brake discs and braided brake line kit arrived on Saturday so they might get fitted for FITP

*pics to come *

still got to add pics for the body work :look: :look:

Sounds good mate. Going to be pretty mint...

Nevermind about the 2L conversion, you'll get it done all in good time, and as the chaps at Grolsch say 'You cant rush these things'

Get the pics up soon though mate, look forward to seeing it at FITP...

Paul.

yeah she is looking mint but as she is an everyday car she has car park dents and some scratches on the bumper from when i bought her

i went to tesco's with my other half and came out the house the next morning to find some wank face had scratched my newly spared panel :x , but luckly a mate of mine managed to t-cut it out

yeah the cossie brakes and fucking massive :o and really heavy nearly gave myself a hernia ( sp? ) when i picked the box up :lol: :lol: , i painted my calipers ages ago and they came out pretty crap :cry:

getting a bit nervous for FITP now :look: :look:
