Diff heads, what can you swap?

Postby iank » Fri Mar 09, 2018 3:47 am

Have a chance to get a Mk 1 Capri diff minus the head. What other heads will interchange?. Can I use the Escort or Cortina?. I already have an Escort diff, but as the Capri slips straight up there is no need for welding or the certification that will be required. Also being around an inch wider either side, that means wide wheels can be fitted for the boy racer look. Or am I barking up the wrong tree.

Hi yes can use Capri axle in place of escort or cortina,as long as it English axle (diff goes in front of axle),think only difference is some use larger flange to Propshaft ,but you can just swap the flanges over
