Timing Belt - VCT Delete - Oil Pump Front Seal Replacement Ford Zetec Engine.
This video shows you how to replace the timing belt on a Ford Escort ZX2.
It also shows you how to delete the VCT gear for use of an adjustable gear
and how to replace the front oil seal. Other Zetec engines are similar
enough (from 1998 up, prior engines are similar but don't use VCT) that you
can use this video to do the timing but removal of other parts around it
(like the overflow bottle is in the way on some non-ZX2's) may not be the
same and not all Zetec's have the VCT mechanism. I used to sell this video
on Ebay and I've sold about 200 of them over the years and only once has
anyone complained about it not being useful and he had a Focus. He
apparently didn't read the listing where I said the video was shot on a
ZX2. Anyway, I'm sure you'll find this video helpful and please don't
forget to rate and share it.
You should also note that the Zetec engine in the ZX2, Contour, Mystique,
Cougar, Escape, and Focus (not SVT) are non-interference despite what a
mechanic or even a Ford dealer might tell you. I even show in the video
why it is this way and prove it by cranking my engine over with the belt
off and the cams locked.

-Please watch the video with ANNOTATIONS ON. I've updated it to make it
easier and more complete. You don't have to make a special tool if you
rotate it 180 degrees. - I'm an ASE certified mechanic with over 20 yrs
experience. I like to make videos of some of the common fixes I come
across as well as some the tricky ones that some find frustrating. This
timing belt procedure is quite unique. Give it a watch. You may find it
2013 Thunder Road M&M Beverage Enduro #42 In-Car
Paul Dudley's 98 Ford Escort ZX2 from the Lightning McQueen themed 42 car
of Dudley's Driving Academy. Came in 85th place!
I completed 34 laps total, and learned an important lesson: don't neglect
to put decent brakes on the car, you'll need em. Probably a good idea to
make sure they work BEFORE race day too.
Watch at the 6:10 mark as the 37 car takes me out from behind and then
immediately gets pummeled by the wreck he created.
It also knocked off my serpentine belt, leading to the end of my race
without a working water pump.
Oh well, Beverly got 10th!!!!

Escort Update - Straight Piped
Did a few things to the escort. I extended the shifter by welding a nut
the the head of a bolt, and screwed it onto the shifter, and then put my
homemade pool ball on there for a shift knob. The Exhaust is in the middle of some sweet
