it should fit straight in you could put a 1.6 engine in from another focus if you wanted to

we found a engine in a local breakers, said it came off a fusion with rear damage, so engine is good....had it fitted today, had to change a few bits, manifold etc, and clutch and flywheel....engine WONT turn over, the didnt try before fitting it! Removed spark plugs and were rusty, also water in cylinders, so prob got very wet where its been standing? They tried even towing it and trying to free it up that way, no joy! Seems completely seized due to water. Anyone aware of this type of prob? Gona get them to replace the engine.

even if it did start with a tow, i dont even want to know what the cylinders would look like...

if the engine has been lying outside for a while then i imagine that kind of damage is normal.

did you not pick the engine? you want one thats fresh in at the most been there a month and you want to take the plugs out and have a look never buy an enguine like that its been there a long time to be in that state take it back to them as its useless as said by stef the cylinders will be knackered the minute it starts running if it will youde have been better getting one from ebay they are from breakers have been checked they run and havent been left out in the rain
