Post I need a few Ford engine parts for my Mk IV Courier!
Hi everyone,

I'm getting parts collected to begin building a 1500 pre-crossflow Ford for my 1964 Elva Courier Mk IV and there are a few important things missing! I'm looking for:

A good used 5-port dry sump pump
A billet Twin Cam crank
An aluminum flywheel for a 1500/Twin Cam
I'll add to this list as I find more out, but thanks for looking!

-Mike

Hi guys (and gals?),

I had a chat with our engine builder today and he had a lot of good info for me. Most importantly, he said I can use a billet Twin Cam crank instead of looking for a 1500 crank. As such, I'm now looking for a good used billet Twin Cam crank if anybody has or knows of one! I'm still looking for a good used 5-port dry sump pump and an aluminum flywheel, as well.

Thanks,

Mike

Mike,

Rather than pay the price for a billet twink crank, you might want to take a look at this web site, www.rsmotorsports.com.au Click on the Engine Technical for Twin Cam/BDA and look at the pdf links on using a Datsun L16 crank (forged) for the same 1500 displacement, or you can use the L18 crank, which is the same stroke as the 1600 crossflow. The advantage of the L18 is, the crank is also forged and fully counterweighted. Both of these cranks are easily found in Datsun 510's or 610's.

If you are still looking for the genuine article, you might join the lotuselan.net site, or look on ebay under Lotus Elan for Chinese copies of both 1500 and 1600 cranks.

Thanks for the link and the info, Rob! I'll have to take a look at it later tonight when I get a chance!

If all else fails I have bought great quality new steel cranks at very competitive prices from Nash at West Midlands Crankshafts 07850026888.
Best of luck

Thanks for the reply, Adam!

I forgot to update this thread, but I was lucky enough to source an oil pump and a forged crank (which will be more than sufficient for the motor I'm building). I am, however, still in the market for a 110-tooth, 6-bolt Ford flywheel. I'd prefer lightweight steel but would be fine with aluminum as well!

[b]FYI...

http://prodracing.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=16647

Rob has a full tilt 1500 race engine for sale. Might work with you on cost.... he raced a very decent Lotus S7 in SCCA last few years...

He may be in Daytona for runoffs next week or so..if no reply...

saw he listed other pieces too....including a flywheel... might have been on race-cars.com, parts...

Okie

Hi Bob,

Thank you for the reply, but that engine is very, very much out of my price range. Aside from that, I'm using the engine build as a learning experience as I enter the family business.
