You don’t have to scroll through if you are not interested. But I thought some of you might want to see the progress and steps. This is day two of Zetec to Zetec engine swap. (This Ford Zetec engine has powered our van thanks to a conversion kit supplied by a company called Bostig. We installed the Bostig conversion about 80,000 miles ago. And we love the power, service and reliability it gives us)
We are taking out Zetec engine that we have been running for 5 years. Will be installing Zetec crate motor for a fresh start down to South America. We are also removing the recently rebuilt ransmission for a trip to Arizona Transaxle to get a posi-traction/limited slip ATB kit install. We didn’t have the funds to pay for that when we had it rebuilt, but we wished we had it a few times. So we will spring for it this time.
These photos show the progression of work for two guys (dad and son), working daylight hours in Clarkdale, Arizona at the former BB’s Project VW shop. This is our “home-base” which will soon be for sale, leaving us home-base-less!! Until then we are using the shop fully!
