Does anyone happen to know the distance from the crankshaft center line to the top of the cam cover for the Zetech and the Duratech?

Rob

16.5 in from C/L of crankshaft to top of camshaft drive belt front cover - the cam covers are one inch lower (15.5in).

I have my Zetek on the shop floor .

Thanks Bill. Exactly what I was looking for. If I decide to do a swap on the Plus2, it looks like there will be no clearance problems.
