    I have asked so many people and i am getting so many different answers.

    I was told i could retain the original 100e top mounts which i have now managed to do by getting a steel shalf machined. But i was originally told that they would be a straight forward swop that never happened.
    Then i was told that if i fitted adjustable tcas from a mk1/mk2 escort again they would fit straight in. wrong again they do fit but the camber angle is way off the wheels may aswell be laying flat. Thats at full extention on the tcas.

    Looks like the car off back to the future.

    Has anybody got any solutions as to how i can sort this out. Do i need to fit a mk1/mk2 crossmember. Do i need a escort mk2 antiroll bar.

    I do not want to cut any of my body work even in the engine bay as shes a pearler

    cheers

    well the idea i have in my head is basically fabricate my own x member like many of you have mentioned. I have already purchased the adjustable rose jointed tca's from rally design. The problem is i dont wnat to cut the body work otherwise it would in many ways be a little more straight forward. i will have 7x15" wheels on the rear but the rear spacing pushes the wheels to the outer body so using the escort is idea as it will also push the front wheels to the outer body but it does it alittle to much.

    even with them adj tca,s i think you will still be dissapointed.they don t wind in enough.bottom line is the inner tca mount point has to be the same as the rack piviot point to avoid bump steer and its to wide for 100e[im still sussing it out but you need shorter tca s

    I thought Old Ford Auto Services were developing an Escort style front end that retained the 100E track so the wheels are proprerly tucked in?! Im pretty sure it was in the Retro Ford mag with the grey zetec powered Prefect. As said earlier, look on 100E.com.
    Cheers, Robin.

    I think you find you will have to alter the top turrets and fit eccentric bearing top mounts
