    Re: Mk1&2 escort extra lock drifty steering arms

    I was thinking to reproduce the ones I got from a guy called Ed Cobb because I tried to contact Ed thru mail, but no response.
    May be you can try on Facebook. He has a yellow Escort MK2 for drift purpose, that's why he launched the fabrication of short arms, which were good.
    I still have a pair on my escort, and I want another one for me and maybe for a friend.

    Re: Mk1&2 escort extra lock drifty steering arms

    I contacted jules through ebay, he said he has none in stock but might make a batch in the future. I've tried to add Ed on facebook few weeks ago with no luck and my partner also sent him a facebook/messenger message weeks ago and he hasnt even looked at it.
    Would be great if you could reproduce them. I think there is definitely a market for them.

    I might be able to help here. I'm pretty sure I've got a brand new set still in the bag somewhere. It'll take me a while to find them though as I'm currently locked down as I'm booked in for an operation in 10 days time. So it'll be a few weeks maybe a month at least before I even manage to get round my garage.

    I can't remember if these are drilled for rose joints or tapered ball jointed track rod ends.

    Got a guy in mind to maybe reproduce them too.

    Re: Mk1&2 escort extra lock drifty steering arms

    I saw on the second page from Ed Cobb, CS engineering :
    "For 2017 on wards, this page will purely be more of a blog of the work I continue to do on the MK2 as I develop it further.
    Any parts I have left will be sold, I will not be actively replacing stock in order to sell parts. Parts may pop up for sale in the future but they will be from my car or special circumstances.
    Apologies for any who messaged and received no response, I am sure you can understand."

    That's why we got no response.

    Yes he should be able to just shorten them by 20-25mm.

    Had any luck with this yet?

    I finally found my brand new ones still in the bag. But I've lost the guys business card I had in mind to remanufacture them.

    I am finally back to work this weekend after 8 weeks off, so I should be able to get it again and get in contact with him.

    Re: Mk1&2 escort extra lock drifty steering arms

    Still close I think, and I only removed one arm !
    But I'm afraid they will be expensive.

    Re: Mk1&2 escort extra lock drifty steering arms

    So I finally got to my Machine guy, he's looking into making them for me and he'll come back with a price.

    He asked how many are we talking about, I said 5-10 pairs, straight away he was leaning towards 10 pairs.

    So the question is how many people would be interested in them, at the right price of course? I did give
    him an idea on price but I'll not quote that yet until he comes back to me with how he prices them up.

    Re: Mk1&2 escort extra lock drifty steering arms

    Just to be clear, that'll be for a genuine setup of rod ends ?

    Otherwise a drilled arm for rose joints doesn't fit my setup.

    Yes thats right as per the originals, having not fitted them to my car but I'm assuming the taper is for Green track rod ends.

    They would have to be drilled out if you were going to use rose joints.
