|danvhp||Does anyone have a pic of the full harness needed to make this swap? I picked up a cheap SOHC that has the famous valve seat problem. I want to be sure I have all the proper wiring when I go to do the swap.|

|stanarinze||Hi all, I'm presently doing a swap for my ford focus 2007 sedan with a Sigma 1.6l to a zetec engine. I've completed the swap but the car won't start. Please can anyone give me pointers as the brain box wouldn't communicate with the computer to at least determine what the trouble is?|

|WWAZman||Meh...looked at the one in the junkyard..looked ravaged by someone else and i had no clue how to disassemble it so i left it alone.|

|TheGlassMaker||Yes. Unless you have the keys and lock cylinder from the zetec.|

Ok after waiting a week got the cat converter on, got the flexpipe connected (YAY found a perfect fit - something going right for a change!) .. go to connect the EGR tube... and it's missing a connection from it to the cat converter.. it's short a pipe fitting (adapter??) about 1 or 2 inches...
any ideas what it is, where to get it? Been to every shop and parts store and industrial fastener stores around me and noone has any metric threads that fit that sucker.. it looks like it's a metric size 21?
after finding a junkyard that let me tear apart an engine that still had a cat converter on it, I managed to find the connector fitting between the cat converter and egr pipe. sadly the egr pipe died a tragic death in the uninstallation process, and the fitting died a gruesome death when I took it to Midas for them to disassemble further... it was then that I found out Ford sells that part for $10.45.

|WWAZman||sigh.. new problem cropped up today. The engine I got came with almost everything on it. Almost. I already got rid of the old sohc engine. Something I never thought was different, is. The catalytic converter. SIGH. Ever try putting a square connection on a triangle fitting? Yeah it doesn't work. So now I need to get a new (since I can't get used I also found out today) catalytic converter. The lowest I've found on Ebay is $108. yay. The highest (hoggiest) was at Knechts for $604. Not even going to TRY the Ford dealership.|

Yes I reused the ac compressor. I just had to bend the lines a little to get them to bolt up.
You shouldn't have any issues with a 01 harness on a 00 engine. Plus you should have a gap on the transmission either. Not sure what is going on.
