Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
The one in Gordons bay is owned by a friend of my late father. It is a 2.2 toyota etc. Dont want to post his details without his consent.
I went to school with his one son and surfed with both his sons. Still do when i am visiting home.
The one at auto nine11 is a body shell as in no running gear at all or interiour. I inquired about it last year, apparently no rust though just didnt get the time to go have a look.
My blue dig window bus in SA has no engine :lol: will have to post when i make up my mind wot engine to fit.

Hi Alex,
yes, that is meant for the SA members, we have a list for all other syncro's not from SA, we are trying to see what every one has here.

Thanks

Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
Once these registries are a bit more full, will be interesting to spreadsheet the engines and see which are the most popular, here and overseas. may be good guide for future engine replacements.

Syncro, Sailing, Subaru, Scuba Diving, Surf, Sun, South Africa...

Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
if the guys from the states start, suby's are going to win but the ford Zetec 2.0 is also popular, never seen one here. only the good old 3.0 V6

Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
What is the Ford Zetec 2.0l ? Do we have equivalent motor from Ford here? I assume the motor is used worldwide being Ford?

Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
its a twin cam engine, known to give lots of trouble with overheating in the fords so i would stay away with the syncro

2.6i Syncro Doka 1984
2.5i SSA PlayBus Syncro 1989
2.5i Factory 5 Cylinder Syncro 1991
2.0i Cox Camper Syncro 1989
2.0i Big Window Syncro 1992
2.6i 2WD Doka 1986
1.9TDI Golf Syncro 1991

Re: Conversion Engined Syncro's
Rather fit the VW 1.8T than the Ztech.
