1.8 or 2.0 Silvetop Zetec (Pre 95)

Afternoon all,

It looks like I may have a blown headgasket on my 1.8 silvertop so I am on the hunt for a new engine as I am a bit dubious to how good this engine.

Any 1.8 or 2.0 silvertop engines considered . It needs to be pre-95 as I am doing an IVA test next year so don't want to put a cat on it.

I'm located in Leicestershire but I am happy to drive.

You'll be lucky to find one these days.

Why not fix the one you've got? Could be as simple as taking the head off and a new gasket?

1800 Silvertop

I have a 1800 Silvertop bottom end plus two 1800 heads sitting in my garage.

The block has a letter from Ford technical information centre confirming the engine fitted to a vehicle May 1992.

I was planning to rebuild this engine but plans have now changed, i also have parts to rebuild including new ford 2 litre cams plus hydraulic lifters.

Also new oil pump new water pump cam belt kit head bolts and gaskets.

I'm looking for 250 for the lot.

U2U me if interested.

Failing the above engines I also have one!

It is originally from a rs1800i so is the 130bhp variant.

No sump and some big end bolts removed for another engine....

I will PM a price!

Or buy a new crated blacktop, chage the cam cover and stamp your engine number on it?
