    1.8 Zetec & Ford Type 9 Gearbox

    A couple of quick questions about the Zetec Engine and Ford 5 speed Type 9 gearbox.

    1. Can I buy a bellhousing to mate them together? Or is it going to be a conversion plate on the engine?

    2. Ford 1.8 Zetec, what carbs are best? To convert the engine to Carbs?

    Thanks

    1.8 Zetec was put in Escort and Focus cars in the UK. Not sure about anywhere else?

    Either way though 1.8 or 2.0 I am sure the question counts for both?

    Any sudgestions?

    Thanks. I am looking at putting carbs on a Zetec engine as I am running Megajolt and want to keep the setup. The new engine will be fitted to the Ford 5 speed type 9 gearbox (out of the Sierra )
    All help greatly accepted.
