so, part one http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/39262-16-tdci-knocking-on-revs/
Long story short, atleast 2 decided to take a hike (havent checked what the intake side looks), so ive got atleast few bended valves, busted exhaust cam, and it looks like i need to replace nearly every cam follower...
So, the only chanse realy is change eather the whole head, or the whole engine.
First of, has anyone ever took an engine of from one of these? Is it easyer to take out whit trans still engaged, or is it easyer first take off the trans, and then the engine? And on witch way does it come out easyer, above or down under?
Second one is about the replacement engine... For some wierd reason, the 1.6 TDCi seems to be made out of pure gold... atleast according to the price. Cant find any 1.6 tdci's under 1600£ when you can get mondeo 2L duratorq for 400£... ?! Witch got me into thinking, how big pain in the ass would it be to put something else in there ? For examle if i go for 1.8 TDCi ?
