What happened to the conrod?  I would think removing the engine may seem

like more work but you will be able to rebuild it far easier out of the car than

still in it.

I don't know for sure but it should be possible...In simple terms, remove parts from the top of engine (inc rocker cover and Head), drain oil and remove sump, undo big end bearing cap bolts and remove cap, tap out the piston with the conrod attached. Obviously there are other things that need to be done for safety like disconnecting the battery and releasing the fuel pressure maybe, and other things to remove for access. You'll need a Head gasket kit, head bolts/nuts?...new sump gasket as a minimum. You'll need to find this out before you start.

 

This is basically what I did to replace the piston rings on a 1992 2.0 RS2000 engine (not the Zetec)

Hi

 

Assembly will be considerably easier out to the car.

 

Always risk of potential leaks when replacing items while lying on your back and working in confined spaces.

I replaced the pistons on my 1.8 TDCI without removing the engine from the car - though by the time I'd actually got to the point of being able to do so, the Engine block itself was about the only part of the engine still in the car - and I'd had to drop the subframe and remove the gearbox due to the fact that on my engine, there is a part between the sump pan and the bottom of the block that has to be removed to get to the bearing end caps - and four of the bolts securing this are behind the flywheel.

Would it have been an easier job with the engine removed and would it have take a similar

amount of time to remove the engine and do the work?

 

 

Obviously the time/space/tools will have a big part in which option people take

when doing larger jobs.

 

 

Do people not use plastigauge's or similar these days?

Arguably yes, more than likely, but my engine stand already had the engine from my 'Toy' mounted on it. My Mondy is my daily driver and what I am using whilst the 'Toy' is off the road while I'm rebuilding it's engine and gearbox.

Unfortunately, I suffered a failed timing belt (despite having bought the car with a full service history). Whomever had done the timing belt service clearly wasn't aware of the change that Ford made to the 1.8 TDCI in 2007 and only did the top belt.
