Hello all in the Spider & GTV lounge
I'm currenty building a front engined RWD kitcar using a ford drive chain (type 9 box, english axle arrangement) and am looking for some help.
I'm using the 164 3.0 V6 12v engine turned sideways to mate to the ford gearbox.
The two things i would like to find out are:
1 Is the sump fron the GTV (as its mounted the correct way
) different from that of the 164. I am going to have to cut a bout 3" of the sump to get ground clearence. This will loose a bout 2 litres oil unless a come up with a better plan (dry sump, oil accumulator) I was hoping that the GTV6 sump was longer and shorter with the same capacity. If anyone knows or even has a picture / diagram it would be spot on.
2 the input shaft from my ford gearbox is going to have to fit into a spigot bearing on the 164 crank. I was wondering what the arrangement was for the GTV6. I believe its transaxle, is the clutch at the back ? There is no spigot bearing on the 164 as it only has a very short shaft, but there is room to fit one. I thought this may have been left from a past use of the engine.
Anyhelp most welcome
