Svt Vct delete

If you've done the vct delete what did you do in order to keep the factory valve cover?

OK that makes no sense to me so I'll give more background info so you see where I'm coming from. I'm swapping an svt motor into my escort zx2. I did the vct delete. The motor I bought was missing the vct solenoid. Knowing now that without the solenoid oil will come out of the empty space I'm wondering what you svt guys are doing. Are you guys just leaving the vct solenoid in to keep the oil under the valve cover or are you guys removing it when you delete everything else and sealing the hole?

you didn't say you were missing the solenoid. go find one and install it thats all you have to do.
just dont connect the wire to it.

Contact John P from the ZX2 forums (TeamZX2.com). IIRC he made a VCT Solenoid blockoff for the ZX2, and I think that may also fit the SVT.

If he still has any I don't know.


...


Found this on Karl's Facebook page:

Ok thanks I pm'd him. Also on that pic of the VCR delete what are those two smaller parts? Are those supposed to block the solenoid ports?

That kit is for the ZX2. Not for SVT. You would retain the solenoid on the SVT (and ZX2 for that matter) as stated.

Is there is size difference in the solenoids?
I know they look different and I've never had the 2 side by side to measure.

But I too would like to delete the solenoid, being it's just in the way now.

A new vct solenoid is not cheap either. I just paid over $225, so a used one would be ideal.
