Robin Hood 2B 4-1 Exhaust And Steering Shaft

Recommended Posts

Hi, Pretty new to the forum and I am sure I will have lots of questions. But rebuilding an 80% complete 2b, just changed the pinto manifold and 2 tube standard exhaust for a stainless 4-1. Yes it was a pig to fit and with the engine in place! But its in and looking shiny. I know i need to move the steering shaft and have researched a little on here. But does anyone have pics where they can show their solution?

From what i've read on here the answer is normally to add a 'gocart' bearing and an extra joint to route around the exhaust.

Thanks Rich, That is just what I needed! Looks very similar to what I am doing. I have just got one of the gokart bearings and removing the old sierra bearing under the dash. Do you have pics of under your dash and position of bearing? Is your steering wheel at an angle?

My steering wheel is square, steering column points straight forwards. Get accelerator pedal as far to the right as possible, then get brake and clutch in a comfortable position. Brake and clutch pedals fit as is, accelerator will probably need cutting.

      Hello
      It might be a long shot but I am after a manifold for my Robin Hood which has a 2.0l Pinto.  At the moment I have an original Sierra manifold but I would prefer one of the Robin Hood Engineering ones.  Has anyone got one that they don't want anymore?
       
      Thanks

      Hi, I bought an old 2b with sliding pillar partially built - 2 years ago. Lots and lots done, basically rebuilding the entire car, bit of an engineering project!! and we have just completed a GBS wishbone suspension rebuild on the front and replaced the damn awful pillar suspension! The car currently has a mg metro steering rack on that we have removed. I want to go to a ford rack to match the sierra track rod ends and extenders we now have. Would a mk2 escort match or what have other members fitted? Any help would be appreciated
