Propshaft

An Escort axle is an unusual and possibly non standard install. If it is an English axle a picture of the prop inserted into gearbox may be a better means of getting opinions on whether correct or not.

Ian,

It is an Escort Mk1 English axle as modified by Caterham.  This was the standard setup before they moved to Ital axle and Escort Sport box.  I have a prop but it looks decidedly home made (I want to replace it) and I would like to know if it is completely correct.  There is a part no. in the Tony Weale book (02/506297) but no further detail.

Car is completely in bits at the moment so photos not possible

Regards

Andrew

Elie, that would be easy if it wasn't for the fact that the car is spread out all over the place.  The newly re-skinned chassis is at the painters at the moment and the rest is in bits being sorted.  I am trying to source the new bits I need in the meantime

Yes the car is 1985 but it was built from one of Caterham's "modular kits" available at the time.  I decided to stick with the Ford English axle.  It is a Q reg.

I think you need to reassemble everything and check the propshaft fits followed by a trip to Bailey Morris in St Neots for a remanufacture / new build. 
 

We're always interested in build projects so keep us updated!
