Note: currently unavailable - contact sales for latest information.An extra heavy duty engine crossmember for Escort Mk1/2 that prevents the engine moving far more effectively than the standard crossmember. Originally developed for the arduous conditions of the World Cup rally and an essential part for any competition vehicle. The crossmember is boxed for strength and uses Metalastik type mounting bushes to restrict and dampen all engine movement. Steering rack mounting racks have been lowered for additional clearance.
Crossmember should be purchased with engine mounting brackets to suit engine fitted:
MP184 - Ford SOHC Pinto & Cosworth YB
MP183 - Ford X/flow OHV Kent & BDA
MP174 - Ford Zetec E
MP173 - Ford Duratec HE I4
We do not recommend fitting this crossmember with engine brackets from an alternative manufacturer as fitting or engine positioning issues may be experienced.
Minor modifications will be necessary to the crossmember on LHD applications to clear the steering coupling. Alternately the GRP4 Fabrications crossmember MP1154 will fit LHD vehicles without any modifications.
Note that although these crossmembers are often used on road vehicles, there will be a significant increase in the amount of vibration transmitted to the chassis.Application:
