Hi, I have an Escort 1300L it was made with a 5spd box but the person i bought it from changed it to 4spd.
The problemi have is that when i fitted a 5spd box i am only get 1,2,3and 4th gear, cant get reverse or fifth.
Are the linkages different for 4spd and 5spd?
If so my engine is an OHV will the linkage from a CVH gearbox fit the OHV gearbox the local car dismanterles
dont have any 5spd Mk4 Escorts in only 4spd, I got the gearbox from a fiesta the breakers said they are the same gearbox.
the gearbox did go straight in.
This is the first time i have ever worked on a transverse engine maybe i havnt lined something up
Desperatly need help i need my car back on the road.
Thankyou in advance for your advice
