Fiesta st main bearing torque settings???
Firstly, hello, as I am completely new to this site!! I have just bought my wife a 54 plate Focus 2.0 petrol titanium, it has induced water through the inlet manifold and destroyed no 3 condos and holed the block! I have got a fiesta st engine which has run a big end, so have removed the engine from the Focus and have started to strip both engines and build the st block up with the focus crank. I have got as far as putting the crank in the fiesta block and discovered that automata or the local ford dealer for that matter can't provide me with tightening torques for either the main bearings or big ends!!! They tell me that if you have any problems with the bottom end of these engines you have to discard and replace with new block which comes fully built with crank etc. someone somewhere must have rebuilt one of these engines, I can't believe they are disposable and any help in providing the tightening torques would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance, Ashley
