It's quite easy to screw the timing up if the locking kit isn't used correctly but I'm sticking with a vacuum leak or a split hose..

Hi. Ihave 1.8 '99 petrol zetec and share your problem with 'hunting' at low revs and occasional stalling, New Quality HT leads and plugs with correct gaps set seemed to sort the first time. iac valve the second time and lubing the throttle cable and now I think its just part of the focus make up. I'm having a play with a slight misfire now too so will let you know if its connected. Also try not to use supermarket fuel definatly makes a difference in the running.

What happens if you unplug the maf sensor? A duff one will cause running issues...

TRY to the left of where youre hand is a black circular box it fits there by the look of it or behind the engine where ure hand is in the picture it will conect to a larger piece going into the engine next to a rubber hose with a bend in it that runs under the coil pack

Do the revs hunt when car has been left for couple of hours? sounds like it could be cylinder head temperature sensor;not an expensive fix.
