Hi everyone.....I was wondering if someone could answer a question for me.....?

I have an engine from an "M" reg escort & would like to know if it would fit/work in a later model ?
As far as i can see there isnt much difference between the 2, mine has power steering so i presume id just take the brackets, pump & belt from mine and swap them over to the older engine, but im wondering if the electrical connectors could be different?

The only other visual difference i can see is the older engine just says "diesel" on the rocker cover, whereas my later van (2002 reg) says "endura de" on the rocker

any ideas anyone ?

Thanks in advance ;)

From what i gather the mounting bracket may be different for the power steering but i am not sure as i done the endura to older Turbo diesel conversion.
You may have to change a bit of wiring for the diesel pump too but its fairly easy to work out.

Thanks vinny.....this older engine doesnt have power steering, so im wondering if its just a case of fitting the one from the endura engine (both engines are non turbo)

The bracket may well just swap and you can put the power steering on then.

Yea the bumper is a Cosworth Van bumper. You can buy them on eBay for 139.99 + 19.99 postage.

These bumpers from Phoenix-Autosport are far superior in quality compared to the cheaper replica's.

Well worth getting as they change the look of the van completely.
