hi nigel, what wheels are you using on the 100e? i suggested escort as well as anglia as if you're not going very wide the escort is a lot cheaper and easier to source. anglia axles make about the £200 mark upwards (occasionally less but they're snapped up quick) whereas escort ones are £100 up depending on diff ratio. also the anglia brakes are very small too so may not be suitable.

ok but the axle is 44inches wide inside hub to inside hub I have only found escort ones that are 48 inches
the wheels are wolf race alloys old ones seventies I think m8
is there an escort one that would be 44 inch
im running a 1300gt escort engine and gearbox
thanks nigel

all this inside hub measurement everyone speaks about is bollox really, unless all axles are the same distance from there out to the wheel mounting flange which they're not. the important spec is from where the wheel mounts each side. most english ford axles are listed that way, it's much easier to work out. but no escort axles don't come as narrow as anglia ones. you didn't say what wheels you have yet.
