It has been long brake but will start working on it again soon. Just bought some parts. Ford RS wheels 7X14 and a front spoiler :)

But I have a problem I have been working on for a while, How to get a LSD axle for my MK2? Can anyone help me with what the numbers on these plates mean? Ratio I understand but are any of these a LSD? if not, what numbers should be on a LSD plate? Useful help here would be very much appreciated :D

Finally I got a Transit LSD :D from a 1994 so it is wider :? But I think it will fit the MK2 housing, but the drive shafts are different, both different splines and different diameter. Has anyone solved this problem?

I sold an LSD center which would have fitted yours not that long ago :(

For the halfshafts to fit, you need to find a pre '86 one...

Absolutely loving your project build progress mate, I’ve. Been pondering the possibility of fitting the om606 to a transit especially the mk2 as it’s my favorite model.

Would you mind in future if i sent a couple of mails asking the finer details of some of the parts to the build? Like I say I’m wanting to do similar myself over here in Scotland

Cheers

Hello! Where did this project end? I´m about to head down the same path, and I have som questions about the transmission you have chosen aswell as driveshaft complications. Would you mind having a chat?
