I'm planning on putting a 2.0 Dohc and a type 9 gearbox into my roadster, I already have them, my issue seems to be that the engine originally had an automatic gearbox fitted! looks to me like I need to change the sump pan to one from a manual engine. This I believe is almost solely down to the starter motor??? does anyone have a sump pan hanging around?

Thanks

Scott

After a closer look today I'm expecting the manual sump pan to have the starter on the other side, the zetec has the starter motor on the top of the bell housing. so i would sat that they are completely different I'm going to the breakers yard in the morning so will have a look then.

Hi,
A Zetec sump will not fit a 2.0 DOHC (Sierra). The block is just not the same. CVH and Zetec are compatible, but for a DOHC block, you need a DOHC sump. I have a DOHC in my Roadster, and I made all the possible researches to find an alternative sump, in steel, so I could shorten and weld it myself. The original DOHC sump is in aluminium, and I can't weld aluminium. I couldn't find any other compatible sump. So I've shortened my sump myself, but had it welded by a professional welder.
You can see the shape of the sump on my pictures, and you'll see it is very different from the Zetec.

If you fit a type 9 on you DOHC, you will need to have the flywheel machined of about 10mm, if I remember well. It looks like it fit, but it doesn't (I have tried). The flywheel is too thick, and when the gearbox and clutch are mounted, even if it looks to fit, the bearing is pushing on the clutch.

(Sorry, I haven't translated this post on my blog. Hope the pictures will be enough to understand, or perhaps you speak French ? otherwise, a translation thought Google Translation is not perfect, but better than nothing)

I should have links to forum somewhere that explains how to machine the flywheel, if you are interested, I'll make some researches.

I finally used the MT 75 gearbox from my donor.

Hope this will help :)

Voucht,

Thanks for the information, I was aware of the flywheel being too thick, that's not an issue for me as I work for an electrical / mechanical engineering company. after taking advice I visited a few ford forums and found out that to fit a manual gearbox i will need to change the sump to one from a manual, so far I cant find the correct sump for sale. apparently the ford galaxy uses the same engine haven't looked at those yet but thats next.

Thanks

Hi,
I can definitely get you a 2nd hand DOHC sump from Sweden, there are plenty of Sierras here, and the car breakers have a lot of parts. But it is not going to be cheap of course, first because everything is expensive here, and second because of the freight cost. I'm not sure we can get one for less than £100 delivered in the UK.

If you are interested, you also have to make sure the starter will be on the same side. My Swedish Sierra 2.0i DOHC had the starter on the right side of the car, so I guess all of them are the same here. So you need to check on which side your starter is on your Type 9.

Just let me know if you want me to check further.

Thanks.
