For anyone considering installing a Ford Zetec E 1.8- or 2-litre engine into a kitcar Burton Power now has a RWD conversion kit that is suitable for both Silver Top and Black Top engines (including the ST170).
The tailor-made engine mounts fit to the original crossmember and will line up with bolt holes on the Zetec block to correctly position the engine.

The kit includes:
• A cast alloy sump pan kit with baffles, pickup, dipstick, dipstick tube, sump gasket and sealer.

  • A water rail simplifies the cooling system and plumbing of the engine. The rail has provision for a temperature gauge sender and electric fan switch. The kit includes suitable switches and a fitting kit.
  • A steel flywheel with ring gear, which when used with a 2-litre Pinto clutch and the clutch will be set at the correct height for the bearing.
  • Flywheel to crank bolts – special flywheel bolts are required to mount the new flywheel.
    A flywheel-to-clutch dowel and clutch-to-flywheel bolts are also included.
  • Edge gear reduction starter motor which is correct for the RWD offset flywheel.
  • Crankshaft spigot bearing for the end of the crankshaft to support the end of the gearbox input shaft.

The kit solves numerous transplant problems and replaces incompatible parts. Order as part number FZ490SK at £1428 inc VAT.
