Well the extensive rust removal and repairs are finally nearing an end on my Consul Capri, so I have gone out and bought myself a black top 2.0 Zetec engine to drop between the rails. I thought about keeping the original steering system, which means retaining the original crossmember, but am now questioning whether the engine will fit without fowling the existing components. I know Zetec's have been fitted to Consul Capri's before, but the ones I have read about have used a steering rack and a later model steering assembly. I haven't actually offered up the engine to it's new home as the engine is being housed 5 miles from the bodyshell.
Any one have an answer to this please ?????????
