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
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?
Hi, Just a quick one (I hope). Today I noticed some play in the steering column UJ. This play results in around 8-10mm of play at the steering wheel... not great ! Having taken a look, the lower half of the UJ is rotating slightly on the shaft leading to the steering rack. See picture for explanation I intend to weld this part of the UJ to stop this play - is there are reason this would be a bad idea ??? Thanks for any advice...
