Sourcing/Installing ZETEC

Posted on: Wednesday March 7, 2018

Bob Hauge knew of an engine that was reasonably priced and had a bit of life left in it. As well sourced the Weber DCOE's for Me. When John Burks of Ashland, Oregon heard about My project He told Me and sourced all the other parts I would need including a ZETEC that was KAPUT. The Owner of this stuff lives just South of San Francisco. John and Barbara invited both of us to their home in Ashland and We made the swap. So now I had all the parts to make this conversion. I am making this soun...

Hauge Engine 2015 04 01 17 50 02 UTC

Bob Hauge of Longview, WA had converted His 4/4 to a ZETEC engine. Bob did not want the complexity of Fuel Injection and had a pair of Weber DCOE Carbs that He had used on other engines for years. I had ridden in Bob's ZETEC 4/4 and this was the "edge" I was looking for. I asked Bob for help. He would help Me so long as I assembled this as He did His 4/4.

I would drive across Snoqualmie Pass 3,500' then North on Bluet Pass, stop in Leavenworth (Bavarian Village (Tourist Trap), then Stevens Pass 4,500' and Home. There was no doubt, I needed more power if I was going to enjoy this Morgan.

On Hiway 101 at about the Oregon/California border is a very long hill to climb. About 5 miles long. The GM Automatic Transmission had but 3 gear ratios. There was not enough power to use 3rd so I used 2nd. To maintain 50 MPH the little DOHC Fiat Engine was at about 7,000 RPM. It did not miss a beat nor did it overheat. It certainly was up to the task even though 50MPH was a bit slow to travel on this stretch of Hiway.
