Details

Cometic .060" AFM material. AFM (Aluminium Foam Material) is a chemically blown, compounded nitrile synthetic rubber bonded to an aluminium core with temperature resistance of over 250degF.

Ideal for machined surfaces, especially when used between two uneven stamped surfaces that have been plated. Maintains a strong torque retention with a 85% recovery. Does not require re-torque or sealants.

Atlas Axle: Originating in the 1960s from the Transit Mk1, the Atlas axle was soon transferred to the Capri as a heavy duty alternative to the English axle for the powerful V6 models. It is referred to as the ‘Salisbury’ axle in the Ford parts lists and Type D in the Ford workshop manuals. Note that ‘Salisbury’ is simply the design/style of axle which is common amongst many different manufacturer makes (this name should not be confused with Salisbury LSD units that fit the English axle).

The Atlas was made the standard axle fitted to most of the Capri Mk2/3 range but reserved only for the 2.0/2.3 Cortinas. It continued in the Transit range up to the late 1980s and a version of this axle was also fitted to the Sierra based P100s.

Its durable design, by using stronger casings, stronger tubes and larger crown wheels and pinions, make it ideal for competition applications. They are most commonly used in Escorts as a baby or narrow Atlas, which are basically a Mk1 Capri unit.

Identification: The Atlas axle has an integral differential housing with a rear inspection cover bolted to the casing, but so does the similar looking Koln axle. Check the 3 bolts top and bottom that secure the rear cover – the Atlas unit has evenly spaced bolts whilst the Koln is uneven.

Standard halfshaft spline is 16 teeth. ZF Group 4 uses 18 teeth (competition only).

Oil capacity is approx 1.1 litres.
