Cylinder Head

8 posts in this topic

can any one help one can i put a pre face lift cylinder head( 2001) on a face lift engine old silver top onto a black top its a 1.8.and how hard are they to change. was having new engine fitted to day and as he went to start it for the first time he said it was making a racket when he looked one of the bolts was loose so the timing was out the engine was sold to me as a good clean engine but it looks like some one had loosened one of the bolt its a mk3 mondeo

No blacktop and silver tops are different. And a mk3 is a duratec not a zetec anyway!

Id be very worried about any new engine that youve just fitted thats rattling its cok off. I know if I fitted an engine to someones car thats rattling id be asking for a refund or another engine

your confusing engines bud

Mk 1 Mondeos had silvertop ZETECS

Mk2 had blacktop ZETECS with diferent inlet manifold and bigger flywheel, some had DMF's

MK3 had blacktop DURATEC not seen any silvertop duratecs if im honest

zetec are belt driven cams and duratec are chain driven cams. I was the first person in the UK to rebuild a duratec btw (useless info half hour LOL) My apprentice fitted wrong plugs and made a mess LOL
