Zetec engine mounts wanted

Post by AndyL »

Decided to bite the bullet and remove the crossflow and upgrade to a zetec. Starting to pull the required ‘bits’ together and keen to hear from anyone who has got a set of zetec engine mounts that are surplus to requirements or any other bits and bobs required for a zetec install.

Can't help with any parts, but keep us updated on what you need and what you do (with pics if poss) as it's an upgrade I will be making in the future when I blow my Xflow up.

I'm doing this at the moment. I've ordered my mounts from fury sports cars- £90, I'm assuming I'm going to be stung for delivery and VAT on that as well! I couldn't find any second hand. I would have brought a welder and done them myself, but I don't think I'll need enough stuff welding to justify the cost.

They came out of the powder coat oven this afternoon apparently, so I should have them soon! Fingers crossed they'll fit, I'm reasonably confident....

The engine side will fit ok but not sure the chassis plates will be in the right place to site the bellhousing right back tight to the tunnel :roll: Fury chassis are different in width.
I just love the Stylus but she keeps swallowing £££ !

Looks like we'll find out just how fury my fury-chassis'ed stylus is then! Fingers crossed...

The mounts are very simple, £90 seems a lot .

H'mmm , I was thinking the same . Shame I don't have a spare pair to build a jig but then there probably wouldn't be enough needing them .

I know its a complete rip off, but it is quick and easy (assuming they fit!).

Rob if you were to knock some up it looks like you'd have two customers straight away- I haven't paid Fury yet

Can't make them without making the jig first and can't do that without a pair of mounts OR at least jack the engine up and remove mine ------------------------ not in the mood with the new season about to get going.

Managed to get a brand new pair off of eBay - £68 including the mounting rubbers. Fury sport cars said they would fit the Stylus – proof of the puddings going to be in the eating!

AndyL- Did you manage to get your ebay engine mounts to fit? My expensive ones from Fury don't! The chassis is too wide :-(
