    Mk3/4/5 back axle

    Yes only Atlas in 3.75 as far as I know (I'm sure Craig can confirm). Careful with Atlas axles though they come in 3.44 from 2.3 engined cars and by the sound of things with your wheel size you don't need that Question for you on the halfshafts - you're certain they''re the issue and not buckled wheels? Just had to ask

    Mk3/4/5 back axle

    That's actually quite a good combination. The gear ratio with those wheels and tyres gives you just under 23mph per 1000 RPM or just over 3000revs at 70 mph in top A standard 2 litre cortina with a 3.75 final drive and a type 9 gearbox (which quite a lot of us have fitted) on standard wheels and tyres give a very similar 22.3mph per thousand revs and 3100 revs at 70mph in 5th gear

    To check the ratio on yours check: 1. If you're lucky there is be a tag under one of the diff cover bolts with "3.89" or whatever is the final drive ratio in your axle. Unlikely that's been changed so you can stop there. 2. If not then lift one side of the car (properly supported etc as you're going to end up lying underneath it), undo the prop bolts, put some chalk/tape on the tyre that's off the ground, turn the diff flange and count accurately how many turns are needed to rotate the tyre one revolution. Divide by 2 and you have your final drive ratio By the way what gearbox and wheel/tyre size are you running?
  5. Is this what you need?
  6. Stellars had a 20mm rear ARB, front suspension on later Stellars was completely different. Early Stellars are like hens teeth these days
  7. The ones like this? Linky
  8. Think I have a wishbone somewhere. Let me check next time I'm up in my garage
  9. Think I have a pair of Pinto engine mounts. Can check at the weekend if that would help. Can't help with prop or axle though

    Pinto backfiring

    Do you have the old dizzy? If so does it run OK with that fitted?

    Wanted.. 34ICH WEBER 2ltr

    Ah thanks. As always though you will be posting us some photos?? Love those original Transits, was lucky enough to see the original Supervan close-up once though you'd be looking for a brace of Webers if you went that route 😂

    Specific reason you want to go that way rather than the more usual 32/36 which might be easier to find?
  14. In terms of your "being too tight" question. That shouldn't be possible as long as you have the metal spacer/sleeve that's fitted inside the bush. The big washers press against the ends of that rather than being just a tight fit on the bushes
  15. If you're on a computer when you click in the box to type a paperclip and "Drag files here to attach, or choose files" dialogue pops up at the bottom of the box - like this:
