I have a Ford Cortina which firstly had 1.6 4-cyl engine, which I placed
with 2.8 V6 from Sierra XR4i.
But I want more power now .I would like to put V8 , from Mercedes.I wanted
to fit firstly Ford V8, but here ain't any Ford V8's and american V8's in
general.So I gave up on that.Mercedes V8 are more often, here in Croatia,
and in Bosnia.
I'm planning to fit 5.0, from 500 SEL, is there any difference in block
size, between engines in 380, 450, 500, 560 models?
Cooling?Which radiator should I put then?
Transmission?Could Type 9 5speed Ford gearbox be fitted to Mercedes V8?What
conversions do I have to made?
Or, can I connect gearbox shaft from Mercedes ( if i buy engine with
gearbox ) to Cortina propshaft?
Engine mounting?Could I mount ( handlers of engine ) I give someone to made
What about propshaft?Could propshaft ( and differential ) survive so much
What about installations?
Sorry on my bad english, I'm from Croatia...
P.S.Is the radiator from 2.0 V6 for Cortina enough powerful too cool down
this 2.8 V6 that I have?Just to mention, I don't have visco, because the
propeller is connected directly to engine.
