  1. Nice video. Is it still on track to be ready for Retrorides ?
  2. Personally, I think the paintwork looks cool as it is. Awesome looking Cortina.
  3. Thanks, I’ve sent you a message 👍🏻
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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 prop starts to vibrate once I exceed roughly 60mph. I thought this would be a simple fix. Buy replacement, bung it on and crack on with the next thing on the "to do" list. Can't wait for Santa Pod. Hopefully somebody there will be selling one that I can actually see, touch and feel before buying. wOz

    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
  12. 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.
  13. 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
