If anyone wants a 320+ bhp NA Duratec engine, he's your man.

Thanks, I emailed Rakeway, the reply was some could be produced. I would let them know if there is more interest. Motivation? I have Haynes Ital and Marina books coming my way, thanks for the offer!

English axles in the states? I think I would have better luck finding a Toyota. After it was alk done, the more economic route is to upgrade the Ital. And I don't even need to at my spec, 100hp.

About the Escort axle fiting the Caterham, I just read much of what is said about it. My takeaway was that for the 90s universal long cockpit chassis, some have had no interference issues. You don't know until you get it squared up and sorted. The horse had been beaten, shot, and ground.

No problem! A Haynes manual is essential. Thumbup

Hi - i'm interested in the Rakeway kit if we need to get a few people together. My axle is currently stripped down and i've ordered a Quaiffe ATB, while the patient is open it makes sense to get everything done

Cheers

Just had my ATB installed by Andy McMillan, he shimmed the halfshafts and cleaned up the drums too as they haven't been used since it was parked up in 1987
