  1. Thanks, I’ve sent you a message 👍🏻
  2. Hi All, I’m missing the sight of an escort in my garage. I’d really like a mk2 Mexico to fill the void. but I’d be also interested in either mk1 or mk2 rs2000, Mexico etc. something clean, tidy, roadworthy. Not a project, not concourse, I want to drive it. Give me me a shout if you have something tucked away. Thanks warren
  3. Hi I’m sure by now you’ve managed to find a car, but if not.....I might have something you’re interested in. olympic blue 2 door Mk1 Escort, zetec 16v, Jenveys, omex ignition, quaiffe 5 speed, tran-x diff, safety devices rollcage, discs all round. Cibies. Needs a bit doing to finish off. No welding or paint required. Just time I don’t have.
  4. I haven't driven the car in months, but if I remember correctly, it was 1 of the UJ's. after cleaning it up until it was silky smooth in operation, most of the vibration disappeared.
  5. Hi all looking for a steel dash panel to go in my mk1 escort. I currently have an all fibreglass twin cowel jobbie that I'd like to remove. It's stalling the fitment of my steering column and as per usual, whenever you want a specific item, no one is selling it on eBay
  6. Thanks for the offer Bigfish. But think I'm gonna but the prop idea on hold for now, and have a crack at the steering column and wiring loom instead
  7. Hi all Am I going about this all wrong? (All) I'm after is a propshaft for my mk1 escort running a Type 9 gearbox. So far I've purchased 2 off eBay and both have been wrong :0( In my mind mk1 escorts used the small flange and mk2's the larger flange? All type 9's had the same diameter and number of splines. So I figure an advert describing a single piece prop, compatible with a mk1 escort, running an English axle and type 9 gearbox should be a spot on. Prop number 1 arrived with the larger flange. Prop number 2 arrived with a smaller diameter input shaft. Type E? My current pro

    Hi all Anybody know if Geoffrey Lane, the original builder of my mk1 escort is on here? I have very little history of the vehicle BBY 913H. Well except for the stack of invoices I've accumulated so I took ownership
  10. I already have a prop with the correct flange. If that's the easiest way to go. What's involved to swap it over? I'm trying to cure a horrendous vibration that starts around 65mph! Been like it since I bought the car. I've swapped diffs, wheels, tyres, gearbox, gearbox mount. I'm starting to run out of ideas.
  11. Hi all I'm looking for the larger flange that bolts to the pinion on the diff. I've just bought a new prop but can't connect it up as I have the smaller flange. Cheers Wozza
  12. So a little update....... I got the gearbox back in with a couple of mates. Finished bolting it up and fitted the retro ford gearbox mount last night. This morning I took it for a quick spin, got a mile from my house and the cast bell housing cracked where the clutch cable is mounted. Gutted! Limped her home in 2nd gear and shoved it back in the garage. It must of got damaged when we were fitting it. :0(
  13. Nah, I bought it off a nice chap called Marcus. I believe he's on here somewhere. The shell was / is spot on, just lacking in the exotic goodies that an escort deserves. The Jenvies and Omex were the 2nd big purchase after the Tran-x diff. The sound they make is just gorgeous! Once the straight cut box is finally in, I'll be really happy with it. My plan was to have that sorted for Christmas Day, but now I'm aiming for New Years Day. You know how it goes. The GT you have in your signature also looks very very tidy.
