Vetec engine start up

Recommended Posts

Picked my Robin Hood up this morning.  It has a new vetec blacktop engine.  Has anyone done the startup procedure on this?  Any tips would be helpful.

mind was ok and fingers typing away of course Zetec...... great blog and thank you so much.  I got the ecu and wiring connected today.  I have a start up sheet by Raptor Sports and they say to take of the rocker cover and put oil over the cams and to make sure that oil is being pumped with coil disconnected and spark plugs out.  I guess it makes sense.  once started rev at 2000 rpm for 15 mins and then drain oil and remove oil filter and replace with new oil and filter.....

Got her running yesterday took some doing.  Very happy.

i was told it was a B2 but your saying it’s a S7?  I have ordered a Robin Hood b2 dashboard from kit car spares.  Will this fit?

 

many thanks.

Well done, although a bit of a high idle you've got there 🤪 and what's the liquid round the spark plugs?

It’s a brand new engine and the commissioning procedure is to high idle 2000 / 3000 rpm for 15 minutes.  Then drain oil  and discard oil filter .

 

it was raining yesterday that’s the liquid.....
