hey

use the top part of the sr mounts and the bottom half of the escort mounts and go from there
do a bit of research here http://www.google.com.au/webhp?rls=ig#rls=ig&hl=en&source=hp&q=sr20+into+a+escort&rlz=1R2ADSA_enAU368&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&fp=8aa6131e78378368

too easy and good luck and most of all have fun

custom engine swaps are all basically the same engine mounts, gearbox adapter, exhaust, wiring, fuel system connections and cooling system

use the sr gearbox and modify the escort gearbox mount it will make it easier on you

cheers bear

most people are tending to go hilux diffs now, apparently they are just as strong as a 9 inch but a hell of a lot lighter.

there is a heap of ratios availiable to suit the hilux diffs

if you go hilux diff it will need to be cut down to suit and so will axles but it will be worth it

cheers bear

The closest fit for an Escort is the Hilux 2WD diff from RN10, RN15, RN20 & RN25 models manufactured during the first half of the 70's. Each of these has the same spring centres (940mm) and overall width (1350mm) as an Escort. The spring platform width is equal to the MkII Escort at 60mm but wider than a MkI which has 50mm width springs.

These axles have five M12x1.5mm studs on a 4.5" PCD and will require restudding to match the MkII Escort pattern of four M12x1.5mm studs on a 4.25" PCD. The Hilux studs are longer than Escort studs. The MkI Escort has 7/16"UNF studs on a 4.25" PCD.

The drum/wheel location boss on the Hilux axle is Ø67mm compared to the Escorts Ø63mm.


80s and later diffs are too wide, and the axles can't be shortened as they are machined down behind the spline.
