Exclamation Enging Swap Compatibility!! NEED HELP!!

Okay heres the deal. I am trying to speed up the funding on my current Focus build Sooo I am looking for any way to make some extra cash. I think this may work....

I was recently given a couple of Zetec Blocks from a guy in town. As far as what I have found they are both in good running condition. I have found a 2002 Ford Escort that has a blown Zetec and the guy is wanting to get rid of it for cheap. Is there any way that I will be able to pull the Escort Zetec out and transplant all of the engine accessories to my Focus Zetec and bolt it right back into the Escort? Keep in mind ALL I AM SWAPPING is just the block- I am not trying to use Focus motor mounts on the Escort or any other parts off the Focus engine on the Escort- JUST the BLOCK.

Will this work? The Escort is about 160 miles from here so I dont want to drive out there just to find out it wont be compatible at all and drive all the way back disappointed.

Well..... Nevermind. The guy told me it had the Zetec motor in it and I asked him to take some detailed pictures of the engine bay and send them to me so I can evaluate the motor mount location etc. etc. and he has the SOHC. I can now see what he meant when he said "he would try the swap himself but he doesn't know anything about engines."

Thanks for looking anyways.
