hi guys. does anyone know if the escort mk1 diff (small flange) can be swapped for a mk2 diff (larger flange) on the same mk1 axle casing?

I believe they can but you will have to alter the prop to fit, it may be possible to to change the flange but it will likely alter the diff pre loading and will be a lot of hassle. I am using a 3.54 diff and I am looking to change it for a 3.9 (the standard escort diff) so if you have a diff going spare........

I would be interested in your 3.54 diff, if it becomes available Dave.

ok, after a bit of sorting out the diff/ prop is sorted.

u can swap mk1 for mk2- the both have 22 teeth on spline- sierra has 23

my prop was already for a mk2 so job done- £120 from robin hood
