    Default Duratec Bucket P/N List CP9Z-6500-***

    Hello All,
    I was wondering if anyone had the suffix list for the Ford Duratec buckets/lifters/tappets.

    The main P/N is CP9Z-6500-***. The "***" is a series of 3 letters that correspond to different thicknesses. For example CP9Z-6500-AAB appears to correspond to a 3.000mm bucket.

    It sure would make ordering them easier if I had that info!

    I think I have it filed away somewhere. I'll post it over the weekend. If you are using the 1.25" aluminum tubing, I can loan you the flaring tool if you would like. It puts a nice ridge in the tube.

    papak,
    I've found that Esslinger stocks buckets for $10/bucket. The local Ford dealer was useless, they didn't even know what I was asking for... I suspect if I could get all of the Ford P/N's I could do better than Esslinger's prices, but they may win out on convenience. I think I'll be purchasing 16+ buckets to get the clearances sorted.

    Thanks for the offer of the flaring tool, mine just arrived today, along with a pile of other goodies. I'm still not sure if forward progress has been achieved. There's been a few more surprises than I anticipated in this car. Fun, fun, fun!

    ps. Love the photos of your engine bay! I'll be studying them carefully .

    Just think about how much knowledge you are accruing... sometimes it is the process, not the result, that is most enduring.

    Tom,
    Here's the list of what I removed with the old cams !
    3.000
    3.202
    3.222 (x4)
    3.262
    3.282
    3.322 (x3)
    3.362 (x3)
    3.382
    3.422

    A few buckets that definitely not good enough for set up. A 3.222, 3.362, and 3.422 are junk. None of 'em are beautiful!

    I was planning on purchasing new buckets as I don't want to risk the new cams. If you know any magic on setting this stuff up without spending a mint on buckets I'm all ears!

    Thanks,

    Andy

    I had to replace some tappets about 6 years ago and discovered it was a lot easier buying them from my local Mazda dealer. Below are the part number conversions from my notes:

    3.302: LF01-12-556
    3.382: LF01-12-561
    3.522: LF01-12-568
    3.625: LF01-12-574
    3.650: LF01-12-575
    3.725: LF01-12-578

    To me easy and cheap way to set up the Cam clearances is DO NOT cut the valve tips when doing the Valve Job , When you cut the seats and the valve seats you raise the valve up twords the cam , this will make 90-95% of your clearances to tight , cut the valve stem as needed and use that to set clearances , you can also move the buckets around to help keep from buying more , Make sense ?

    Tom,
    Thanks for the advice. I have a set of buckets on the way in the orig. sizes and I'm curious to see how things end up. I did manage to decipher the P/N's and find a source, so now it's just a matter of inspecting the head/valves and getting a set of cams. I was told they're on back order .

    Andy
