Ford engine cover installed

After having the spark plugs drowned in water twice, I got hold of a used Ford engine cover and installed it in my Plus 4 (Duratec engine). Time will tell if this solves the water ingress problem.

I wonder If this large cover accumulate the hot engine air.
But I have to save the plugs in the future

Thanks DaveW. In fact it took a while to work out where best to mount the cover. Initially I was going to use the two large studs protruding from the front of the engine - but decided against that and looked to use the threads on some of the studs used to hold down the rocker cover shown in photo (as the Ford engine cover uses in the GDI Focus in the US).

But, despite trying many various nuts (metric, UNF, + various from my 'nut' tin etc) on these, I could not find any that would fit. Any idea what they are?


Just a note for anyone doing similar - bending tubes used were smaller than a 'standard' scaffold pole.

I don't think that the cover will pose a heat problem. After all, many ford models use such covers.
