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
Well its come to that time when I have made the decision to sell my 2B.
So here goes:
Its a Robin Hood 2B with a 2L Pinto engine with an injection head.
It Has ZX9R bike carbs on a Danst Engineering Manifold
Type 9 5speed gearbox and sierra rear end.
Martin Keenan Custom built Silencer - giving it a sweet noise and put a smile on your face each time you start it
It has Full weather gear that fits
Has a set of 5 Uniroyal Rain sport 3 tyres that have done around 400 miles since fitted last year ago.
There are numerous other spares that will be sold with the kit. These include a Front Geometry kit purchase form GBS for the vehicle but never fitted, A brand new set of GAZ shocks that are still in their boxes.
The paint on the body is flaking in a few places, but its superficial, just a rub down, some primer and a respray and it will be as good as new
The log book is correct and its registered as a Robin hood 2B Its MOT'd until April 2018. Its covered 16,708miles I'm looking for £3995
I'm located in Crawley - will answer all questions and anyone who wants to view the kit with an eye to buy is welcome
Sadly, I am putting my 2B+ up for sale.It has had so little use for the last 2 years and I have other projects to complete.

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?
