First update for a while looking at the date nearly a year various expenses like a new bathroom a new car needing a new boiler in the house drained the funds for the escort but im pushing now to get it done been working on the engine mostly recently

 

Finally got 2 spare minutes at work to finish the machining on the inlet adapter plate so i can fit the rs2000 inlet manifold to my zetec various holes needed drilling and tapping and a couple countersinking

it was at this point i test fitted the manifold and it fits perfectly so put the engine in a stand and began to clean it down with degreaser then the head with a stiff brush and some petrol it came up a treat
