  3. Elsewhere some one has mentioned a spigot bearing/ ring? ... Trying to think .. my original wheels where either one of these two types of rs style wheel: Mk2 Capri JPS alloy 5.5J x 13” H71AB-1007-AC-C ET Off set (mm) +19 63mm Centre cap hole size and type: 63mm front fit Wheel nuts: Flat washer OR Capri Laser 6J x 13” H81EB - AA ET Off set (mm) +19 Centre cap hole size and type: 57mm front fit Wheel nuts: Taper nut And my latest wheels are replicals from Midland wheels as show below: http://www.midlandwheels.com/Shop/P-8026-6x-13-JBW-RS-4-Spoke-Black-Machined---ET16.html "RS 4 SPOKE " By JBW Wheels,Traditional Classic Retro Design, Superior Craftsmanship.

  4. Its an old ford, itll always need money throwing at it haha.. well worth it, me personally i dont mind spending money i may never get back, its a hobby and good fun, can always earn more money
  5. haha tell me about it Probably cheaper and easier if it was in my head Hopefully ill get there over this winter
  6. I have had two types or RS wheels on, old originals and new ones, old ones has the nut and washer, and the new replica ones on at the moment have the tapererd nut. Ill keep looking when i get a chance, ordered the bushes for steering column aswell, mayswell rules them out. Cheers
  7. Thats good to know, i was literally clutching at straws like time i looked
  8. <embed width="600" height="361" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullscreen="true" allowNetworking="all" wmode="transparent" src="http://static.photobucket.com/player.swf" flashvars="file=http%3A%2F%2Fvid732.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fww329%2Fseaneylad%2FTrack%2520day%2FVIDEO0013.mp4&title=">
  9. Cheers need to take another look, ive tried another set of hubs with same issue. they where 2nd hand though so possible issue still. This is the video, not the best i must admit, does it look like an issue, maybe not be able to tell from this to be fair http://s732.photobucket.com/user/seaneylad/media/Track%20day/VIDEO0013.mp4.html
  10. Yeah i took mine off and put new stainless pistons in that i got via eBay, as whn i bought the car it has sat around the the surface rust on the piston stopped them working as well. since the rebuild they are spot on, stops better than 53 plate vw
  11. I use Princess 4 pots, i think they are spot on! Alot of people dont use them as they do weight a tonne! came on the car and have been good to me on road and occasion track with vented and drilled discs
  12. Same here i have had loads of people on OSF here and on FB give me advice, all valid and good but hasnt solved my issue. 1. I have had legs converted to coilovers with 200lb springs with new roller top mounts up top 2. New steering rack 3. New TCA with polybushed inner and outer 4. New Tie rod ends 5. Checked that the bolts hadnt ovalled the holes in crossmember 6. Rear end has had new single leafs, LSD fitted, poly bushed both ends, Adjustable shocks fitted etc 7. I have also tried a new steering wheel (clutching at straws) 8. Tried a new known good propshaft from a friend with no luck 9. Had 4 wheel alingment and tracking done 3/4 times now 10. Tried 3/4 sets of wheels all balanced, even balanced both sets of mine and fitted new tyres with no luck 11. Fitted nearing wheel bearings and hubs from GS escort up front. 12. Also while i was at it i fitted twin cam anti roll bar with double width kit 13. Had Princess Calipers rebuilt and new discs fitted Still got the issue ... so hopefully ill order these and try get them to fit, and fingers crossed, itll cure my issue.
  13. The other thing i noticed, the other day when i jacked the car up and spun the front wheels they seems to move up and down slightly on both side, not perfectly rotating if that makes sense. Its had new discs, tried new hubs from gs escorts, new bearings, has the legs turned into coilvers with 200lb springs. Its only every slightly but if you look at the wheel in once area and spin in it goes above and below that line. Could that be an issue? Possible stub axle or? does it on both sides? Im lost now checked everything atleast 5 times now and all is okay
  14. Good Afternoon Due to ongoing wheel wobble for over a year ... Ive been told to check steering column and replace bushes as its been known to fix the issue. As i have tried everything esle .. so this is like last chance saloon, give up if this doesnt resolve it haha. My question is where do i buy them from, i have found ones for the mk2, will they fit my mk1 okay? If there anything else i should be looking for on the column as possible area to cause the issue? Bottom steering column bush: Ford Escort Mk2 http://www.burtonpower.com/bottom-steering-column-bush-ford-escort-mk2-mp1011.html Top steering column bush: Ford Escort Mk2 http://www.burtonpower.com/top-steering-column-bush-ford-escort-mk2-mp1010.html Any advice as always is appreciated. Thanks
