In Topic: 4 Speed To 5 Speed

04 November 2012 - 12:02 PM

hi just stumbled accross this, i have an F reg escort wich had a 1.1 valenica engine ( pretty much a crossflow) and it had a 5 speed box, i decided to wip out the 1.1 and stick a 1.6 crossflow in wiccome from a mk1 fiesta with a 4 speed box however i decided to keep the 5 speed box and the transaction was pretty simple i kept the same flywheel clutch guide selector and to my suprise it fitted like a glove it was a pig getting it in the bay as the 5 speed was a bit longer however i just changed the mountings.. altho now u have me thinking as i have only recently had a rebuilt crossflow dropped in and trying to get it to start is a pig its tight as and there is a sort of grinding noise when i turn it over perhaps this is something to do with the gear box =/ altho all my gears work fine and slip into place and the flywheel ect is the same from my old engine so i cnt see y its beeing so stubborn ;( anyway hope my advice helped and good luck.
