Crosmember chassis mount position

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Currently in the process of building my first Escort mk1 grp4 spec.

I have a question about the postion of the crossmember mount chassis tubes (https://www.motorsport-tools.com/escort-mk1-mk2-weld-in-chassis-threaded-sleeve-tubes-boss-for-crossmember-mount.html).

What is the best way to determine the exact position to drill the holes and weld in the tubes? Do I have to mockup the engine and gearbox and check the position and mark it?
Hope someone can point me in the right directen.


Thanks in advance!

Do you have holes in the existing chassis rail for the captive nuts? 

If not I would recommend setting it all up first and marking where holes need to be. Bit of a pain but don’t want to weld them in the wrong place.
