Does Anyone Recognise This Engine Mount?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Does anyone recognise this engine mount and where I can buy another? It fractured when my 2.0l Zetec backfired and I'd rather replace than repair. I've had a good look at the usual sites but not found it.

 

Thanks in advance,

Pete

That is perhaps the least 'fit for purpose' item I have seen in a long time. All the stress is focussed on the point where it fractured. The backfire was the straw that broke the camels back. Would have broken half a mile down the road anyway. To fit a similarly designed one will just repeat the failure.

I would suggest you design your own new one or buy one from someone who knows what they are doing.

As above. It looks home made and I wouldn't use it to mount a food blender to a worktop. Re-design by someone who knows what they are doing is required there. Remember:- always safety first.

      I'm after some advice.....
      I have a 2B whcih is running a Ford Zetec SE 1600 (Sigma) engine on a Megasquirt MS2 Extra Engine Management System. It has some modified delorto carbs (they are cut in half) acting as ITB's (sort of). It runs ok, and has apparently around 144bhp. Being a Zetec SE, the exhaust exit is on the Off-Side of the car making sourcing a 4-2-1 Manifold to replace the puny 4-1 that is in place difficult, and likely needing a custom fabrication job.
      So here is the dilemma!
      Recently I picked up a Zetec S (1700 Puma Engine) for a small amount of money. Its the same bolt pattern, orientation and footprint, but has better internals than the SE, eg Steel crank and rods etc. The original plan was to strip this engine, put some hot cams in it, add some bike ITB's, get some head work done (flow/ported, lifters, springs), and then drop it in as a straight swap with a new beefy 4-2-1 exhaust. The target being around 200bhp.
      Should I go this route, I can expect to pay £550 for cams, maybe another 200-300 on head work + the cost of a custom exhaust (I already have the ITB's), so maybe 2K all in.
      However, along the way I picked up a set of GSXR ITB's on an ST170 manifold ready to bolt straight on an ST170 duratec engine (I also have a set of ZXR12 ITB's that are bigger but that would need a manifold, which I intend to design and 3dprint in Carbon reinforced Nylon).
      So the thing is, given the duratec ST170 engine is the opposite orientation to the S & SE but the same orientation as the Zetec E (Blacktop), eg, "Exhaust on Nearside", there are far more 4-2-1 manifolds available off the shelf (and hopefully second hand) mitigating a potentially expensive custom fab job. Also, being a 2litre engine, with the ITB's and ECU I already have, I am pretty sure 200bhp is achievable without touching the head or opening the engine. Add to that the fact that a decent s/h engine can be had for 300-400 and I could potentially hit the 200bhp target for about 1K, but that excludes any subsequent conversion work I have to do on the gearbox hookup, engine mounts and bodywork.
      I already plan to strip the car back to the chassis this winter, and therefore the engine is coming out regardless so while the S is an easier job, fitting something different is not a deal breaker.
      Thoughts, opinions, advice all welcome!

      Hi, my 1.8 Zetec has died. Anyone out there got a spare one lying about they want rid of.
      Summer is fast approaching and I cant let her sit this one out.
       
      Thanks.

      I have been fortunate enough to come across Neil Adderidge, who I must say has the most knowledge of Ford Sierra and other historic parts going. For all parts Sierra/Granda/Escort vintage, and what will fit with what, and year. Phone him with your questions or parts you are looking for. Genuine, helpful guy, worth keeping a note of his number 07507683000. He's more than happy to help. I have told him that I would mention him on here?
      He talked me out of a purchase, and helped me with the clutch pedal issue on my Hood +

      I have a few of these if anyone's interested you can have them as they are for self assembly,
       
      or I can make them up with tails to your preferred length and wire colour's.
      Available colours are: white, red, grey, yellow, black, green, brown/black, green/red, black/yellow, green/black, blue/red.
      see first photo for your wire colour positioning.
       
      I'll be listing them on the bay @ £8.00 for as is or £12.00 with tails. including postage via royal mail 2nd class.
      as a club discount I'll do them for £6.00 as is or £10.00 with tails.
       
      the picture of the alternator is for reference only unfortunately I don't have any of those for sale.

       
      please PM me with your order and I'll send my bank details for a bank transfer or my address and you can post me a cheque
       
      cheers

      I have an MT75 gearbox and blacktop Zetec engine with the standard Ford clutch. The car has done 4000 miles since IVA
       
      I took it to Emerald last week in Norfolk to get the ECU firmware updated and to get it mapped on their rolling road. During the latter part of the mapping I was told that the clutch was slipping. I hadn't felt it on the drive over there (170mls) and didn't experience anything under normal road driving conditions on the way back.
       
      Since getting back I haven't driven again but I have checked that the clutch cable adjustment does not cause the clutch to be held engaged. In fact the cable has free movement to lift the pedal as far as the clutch release springs/fingers can move it.
       
      Has anyone experienced anything like this?
      Should the clutch wear to the extent of slipping in 4000 miles?
       
      Grateful of your collective experience - Scotland trip only a few weeks away
