Ford Zetec 1.8l/2.0l KIT CAR *ZETEC STARTER MOTOR*

Ford zetec kit car/RX8 adapter

This adapter plate was designed to bolt a Ford Zetec engine to an rx8 gearbox using as many of the engines standard parts as possible. It utilizes the engines original flywheel/starter motor and clutch aslong as it is a 23 spline ford unit. The zetec fwd sump can be used with this adapter plate as the keeps the original zetec starter motor in it’s original position under the inlet manifold making it ideal for a kit car where room is tight or someone who is on budget and want to retain as many standard parts as possible.

In most cases it is possible to use the rx8 clutch arm slave cylinder and release bearing with very little work, but In some cases the clutch arm pivot point height might need adjusting to suit. We recomend mocking this up out of the car. The bolt pitch tapped in the adapter plate is M10x1.5mm. Spigot bearing RX8017 is to be used with this adapter. Fitting kit RX8018 can be used to bolt the engine adapter and gearbox bellhousing together.


Tested in motorsport to ensure we offer the most reliable adapter plate on the market.
