Available soon,

As soon as i have my zetec in and working, im putting it here first as id want it to go back into a lotus.
If required it can go with its carbs (not been used in few years) and distributor (currently fitted with Aldon ignitor 2 module)
Flame thrower matching coil, ignition leads, mechanical fuel pump.

I have no idea when it will be available as it depends on when i get the new one in and working satisfactorily. But i hope it will be within the next school half term. Ready for summer holidays.

She runs fine and im only selling to fund further work thats needed

If anyone is seriously interested PM me.

Thanks

Update to post.

I have found the reciepts for the engines rebuild.
It has been bored to plus 0.040 with power max pistons.
Resurfaced block topdeck.
Reground crank plus 020 main and big end.
Unleaded valve and seat conversion.
Reground camshafts
(Reciept has no detail specs but a phone call with dyno print out suggests to sprint specs)
Engine was ran on Millers classic oil with oil additive, fuel has Millers vsp.
I use Halfords classic and shell or bp. premium fuel.
New oil pump.
New oil pickup pipe.
New, well lots. Looks like a full engine/clutch rebuild.

Miles at rebuild was 79026.
New oil and filter at 80283.
All oils drained and replaced inc filter at 86719 by Miles Wilkins.

Current millage 87776 oil and filter changed to Halfords Classic. I still have spare. Less than 250miles use since change.
I have also used 50/50 mix Halfords coolant/water mix.

Very sensible offers only. Dyno print out is on site too.

Advertising here first before the auction sites. I genuinely would like this to go into a lotus, only selling to fund further work needed to convert to zetec and make safe prior to mot.

Located south Hampshire. Gosport

If had a couple of grand spare I'd make you an offer on that.
Good luck with the sale.

So would I. It's the extra couple on top I don't have!
