Quick shift

Post by DEN,G » Fri Mar 24, 2017 4:55 pm

After a good few close run things,nearly engaging reverse whilst trying to find first.I thought I would be searching for a gearbox.but on the advice of a mate I have bought and fitted a quick shift,it truly is like driving a different car.worth a try if you are having similar problems with a 40 year old gearbox.

Which gearbox is this for? There was one I believe for the Escort but any most probably long since gone. The problem with the the 4 speed is locating the stick which is screwed into the gearbox extension on an plastic thread... mine has worked loose.

So what exactly have you fitted? Sounds like a good idea.

Hi the quick shift I fitted came from rally design part no rd1744 for escort 4 speed box, I really can`t recommend this highly enough. Pulling away from the lights was a worrying lottery between 1st and reverse, you are right about the plastic thread mine had loosened up. But the new one although still plastic fits really securely and if it lasts as long as the original, I wont be around to complain about it. the only downside it does rattle slightly on overrun. hope this helps

Dennis.

So who can one get this from and what's the price? Obviously still available so I am wrong thinking they were obsolete!
