  Puma Race Engines - Ford CVH Engine Tuning Guide
Most CVH tuning is based on the 1600 engine although similar principles apply to the 1300 and 1400.
Ford changed the design in 1986 to try and make it a bit more idiot proof but in my experience there is nothing capable of doing quite as much damage to an engine as a really determined idiot.
Ford had a serious marketing problem with the XR3i which they insisted on being the performance car in the range despite the Fiesta being lighter and a better match for the other hot hatches like the Golf and Astra.

  Ford CVH engine
The CVH (Compound Valve angle Hemispherical combustion chamber) engine was introduced by Ford in 1980 in the third generation Ford Escort.
The engine was originally conceived in 1974 and is unique in terms of its valves mounted at a compound angle, which allows for a hemispherical combustion chamber shape without using a more expensive twin camshaft arrangement.
The CVH-PTE is a revised version of the Ford CVH engine which was introduced on the Ford Escort in 1995.

 Ford Sierra, 1.8 CVH engine 5 speed manual car
The Ford Sierra hatchback was launched in late 1982 as a modern replacement for ageing Cortina cars.
The CVH engine offers better drivability than the older SOHC (Also known as Pinto) engines, they pull better from low down and rev a little better.
One problem that does often present itself on the CVH Sierra is leaking valve oil seals, evidence of this is a smoking exhaust (Blue, smelly oil smoke) on startup, especially if the car has been left for a while.

 Media.Ford.com: Ford RS - The Rallye Sport Heritage
The original RS-badged Ford - the Escort RS1600, was the first-ever Ford to use a 16-valve twin-overhead-camshaft engine, and the first to be assembled in the new Advanced Vehicle Operation factory at Aveley, in Essex.
Ford Capri RS2600 and RS3100 models were not only high-powered flagship versions of Ford's best-selling coupe range, but they also won scores of races, including the European Touring car Championships of 1971 and 1972.
In the 1980s the front-wheel-drive RS1600i was the first Escort to use a fuel-injected engine, and the first to use a five-speed gearbox, while the Escort RS Turbo was the first to use a turbocharged engine, and a viscous-coupling limited-slip differential.

 zetecinside.com - Tuning the Zetec
Fords marketing department presumably decreed that their top-of-the-line performance variant couldn't have an engine of older design than the cooker models, and so they dressed up a Zetec to look like the engine that replaced it.
The Duratec is an all alloy engine with chain-driven cams and the induction and exhaust on opposite sides of the head.
Ford part numbers for the replacement pulley bolts are F7111447, and the oil seals are F1067029.

The CVH bolts directly to a Sierra 5 speed gearbox so there is no need for a special bell housing.
When fitting a CVH engine to an inline gearbox, the input shaft needs to be supported by a spigot bush in the end of the crankshaft.
The CVH does not have an engine mount on the near-side.

 Blueprinting (Dave Baker)
The engine that I build most of is the Ford 1600 CVH engine and most of these over the last 5 years have been for a race series which calls for engines to remain at standard Ford spec.
One of my engines which produced 86 bhp at the wheels went to another engine builder when the car owner sold the car to another driver who didn't know who had originally built the engine.
This "engine builder" knocked the power down to 78 bhp at the wheels on the same dyno by what I can only describe as completely fucking up the bores with a cheap flapwheel type glazebuster tool rather than using the correct honing equipment.

 Ford Escort - Top Speed   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-12)
Codenamed within Ford as Erika–86, and sometimes referred to as the "Mk IV" (although it was not officially the fourth generation), it was instantly recognizable as an updated version of the previous model, with a smooth Scorpio style nose and the "stroked" rear lamp clusters smoothed over.
As well as an all-new interior, a new 1.4 L derivative of the CVH engine was introduced, as well as numerous suspension tweaks to address the long standing criticisms of the Escort’s handling and ride quality, although these had limited success.
In 1989, the diesel engine was enlarged to 1.8 L, and the poorly‐performing 1.1 L version was finally dropped from the range.

The Ford CVH engine has been around for 20 odd years in one incarnation or another, and even the most recent Turbocharged EFI unit in the FRST is knocking on 13.
For years the CVH engined cars ruled the roost as the tuneable hot hatch to have.
When Ford killed off the Escort and Fiesta RS Turbos in the early 1990s and the CVH engine deceased, it seemed that a golden era had come to an end.

The CVH was also produced in a North American version about the same time, for the Ford Escort, built in the Dearborn Engine Plant.
They shared a lot of basic engineering but the final development I believe was largely separate.
I think we should add some North American info to this page but at the moment I am working mostly off of memory so I am reluctant to edit immediately....

In addition to the central tube between the engine and the three-speed gearbox, there were now Z-section side members, with the top flange turned outwards and the bottom flange turned inwards to support the wood floor.
Various Ford overhead valve engines replaced the side-valve unit in succeeding years, and today the 4/4 is powered either by the Ford CVH engine or the Fiat twin overhead camshaft engine, both of 1,600 cc.
In 1968, when Standard-Triumph went over to a six-cylinder engine which was too long to fit into the Morgan's engine bay, the Plus 8 was introduced, powered by the Rover V8 engine, to which has now been added the Vitesse version with the fuel-injected Rover V8.

 Performance Modified CVH Engine - Justin's Ford Fiesta XR2
Yes, the MPG went though the roof but the engine was no longer being starved of fuel.
What the engine did well was accelerate fast, but it was rubbish for overtaking as the power was not there without stirring the gear stick about too much.
XR3i is exactly the same CVH job so it went straight in and gained another 10bhp from having the injection system fitted, which simply bolted off the old engine and onto the one from the XR2.

 History of Davrian
The Davrian marque was conceived by structural engineer Adrian Evans when he first saw a Hillman Imp in 1963, prior to its release for sale to the public.
However the design of the Mk7 and Mk8 cars allowed use of a variety of engine and gearbox combinations, including Renault engine and transaxle, Mini transverse, Ford CVH transverse, Ford Kent (rear or mid-engined).
However, the Imp-based suspension of the Davrians was replaced by a Ford-based suspension layout with a Corry-fabricated double wishbone assembly using Cortina MkIII uprights at the front and modified Sierra trailing arms at the rear.
