hi @WB54 the width is 120cm and if it helps 9" brakes came with it
If it's got 9" brakes then it could be from a Corsair. It will have 2 piston type brake cylinders if it is from a corsair.
I'm not sure but I think the halfshafts are the same length as a Mk1 cortina.

Hope this helps a bit.

Cheers Denis

is that the axle case width or the distance between the axle flanges isntalled i the case, oh and measure in inchs, no bugger will recognise them in cm's

Anglia 105E is 43in case, 48in axle flange to flange

if 120cm is the case width that sounds like Escort, possibly Mk2 if it has 9in drums.

I've just measured a half shaft from a corsair and it's 25.5" long.
As I said in my previous post I believe the Mk1 cortina shafts are the same length.
If you have a cortina axle the brake cylinders will be the single piston type.
If you have a Corsair axle the cylinders will have 2 pistons.

Mk 1 Cortina GT has 9" drums with double cylinders, Corsair and Cotina axles, same width. So it is Mk1 Cortina GT or Corsair maybe MK2 Cortina GT 1600E ?
