Dude that sucks ***. I would keep the motor and just focus on disputing it with the CC company. **** restocking and shipping. they should have never let that motor leave the yard.

also, leaving a motor exposed to the elements for days, weeks, months, years does not constitute a powerwashing.

They are sending me another one to swap it out... No additional charges. The yard is only an hour away so they didnt charge me for delivering it

Exactly... I told them not to attempt to wash it. I dont mind buying a motor that looks dirty... I completely expect to have to clean & repaint things.

this is what my motor looked like sitting outside from Oct to March, under a tarp, through a few snow coverings, plenty of rain, and exhaust/intake/coil ports (spark plugs in place) wide open:



no rust. motor WAS poweredwashed before it sat and again after this pic.

Yep looks way better than that first turd they sent me. Praying the next one is in better shape!

No motor this week... Finally got through to the "manager" who was off Friday when I originally called them to let them know I had a problem... pretty much was lied to last week in them telling me another motor was on the way.

Now a motor should actually be on its way to me

Next one arrived today but unfortunately I wasn't there to see it in person... Looks good from the pictures my employee sent though.

Only things that look wrong with this one is

- A couple missing exhaust studs, and I will have to buy nuts since it didn't come with an exhaust manifold

- The t-stat housing is busted (perfect excuse to pick up that re-route I've been thinking about)

- A couple sensors might be broken

Looks WAY better. Exhaust nuts and studs will transfer off your 1.6.

Did said employee lift it with a seat belt? Is that possibly why it has some broken stuff?

The seat belt was tied between the two anchor points... Its probable someone grabbed it by the water neck at some point though

In other news... Picked up my daily at the auction today! Fully loaded (Minus Navi) 2012 Escape 3.0 4x4. Should be perfect for Nj winter

Didn't realize this was going to to be that big of a deal to get to the t-stat housing bolts... Guess im going to have to do a timing belt on it before I even try to start it. Everything looks ver clean on the motor though which im happy about! Hopefully I will get the intake mani pulled off today if I dont want to be too lazy...



Oh look my manifold fits!

Perfect time to drill/tap or weld the oil return bung to the pan.
Also to clean and mark the timing mark on that crank pulley (so it'll be easier later when establishing base timing).

Good luck!

I definitely planned on drilling/tapping the oil pan and putting the return fitting in.

Hadn't thought about the pulley but that's a great idea! Thanks!

So what is my best option for timing belt, water pump, and seals...

I'm thinking about going with Rosenthal mazdas timing belt kit which includes everything for $215...i don't know if I will need those drive belts though because I have no idea what I need belt-wise for the 1.6 to 1.8 swap

This is the kit that I would buy if I were you. I have been using kits like those for years and have never had a timing belt or water pump issue.
