  11. Hi ya, i'm hoping you can help me? I'm fitting a W.P.E normally aspirated cosworth into my MK1 Escort. It came with a cosworth 2WD sump and I need to swap it to an RS2000 sump. What I need to know please is;- 1. Can I remove the spray bar off the cosworth oil pump and fit an RS2000 oil pump cover plate back on? OR 2. Do I need to have the RS2000 pick up pipe modified to fit the spray bar? FYI. It has a cosworth standard steel crank and rods. I really need a definitive answer on this and i'm hoping you can help. Yours hopefully Roger
  12. Thanks for the link" thats cleared a few things up for me! time to get the grinder and welder out thanks again.
  13. HI" I have 2.8 capri struts on my mk1 escort and want to do a coil over conversion! does anyone know if they have inserts fitted as standard" or is the body of the strut oil filled? the reason i ask is i want to pre order my parts and if i dont need inserts its much cheaper.
