                           No Ford one seems long enough. If you want to

                           retain the original speedo then you'll have

                           to get a cable made using your old ends. I 

                           used a mk. 2 Cortina cable and swapped to a

The P.C.D. is 4.5" so all TR wheels and others are suitable assuming you check

for caliper foul etc. Wheel spacers are available from Triumphtune in 3mm or 6mm

thickness. Part no.s are TT6901 and TRT6902 respectively and prices are 11.50

per pair. TT can aslo supply `wheel clean discs' which go between the wheel and

brake disc to stop dust getting on the wheels. These are part no. TT6044 and

cost 21.00.



TT also make special solid anti-roll bar mounts. I quote:

"These are supplied as a pair,

with new urethane centre bush and outer saddle clamp. This type of bush will

reduce the lost tension that can occur through the standard rubber mounts,

especially useful for the competition owner" See below for prices.

S2's and prior have longer pivot bars in the rear uprights which allow a four

shock set-up to be used. For some bizzare reason the S3 has shorter bars which

allow only two shocks. Conversion is tricky but for safety reasons it is

wise to do this.



Ring for advice if you are unsure how to do replace the short bars as it is very easy

to destroy the uprights.



The GT6 differential in the Vixen is the weakest link in the chain. Kingston

Sportcars and John Kipping are the best suppliers of quality units. The former

will do a bog stock unit for engines with not more than 100 bhp at the

flywheel, an uprated unit for up to 200 bhp and a limited slip unit using

the torsion coupling system for more power and serious motor sport

applications. The Spitfire Mk. V unit apparently has the stronger crown

wheel compared with the GT6 unit and is available in a 3.63 as well

as the standard 3.89 ratio.



The u/js are the next weakest link and then (probably) then

quill shafts in the uprights although it is unlikely you will break these

with less than 250 bhp. Always ensure the propshaft is very well

balanced as otherwise this will ruin a diff and gearbox.

Avoid very heavy clutch starts and watch the u/js for knock. One component

with slack will wear the others more quickly.



Gearbox               This is a so-called Ford `type 3' gearbox as

                      fitted to Cortinas, Capris, Escorts etc. It is a

                      single-rail box. Mine has seperate cast bellhousing,

                      cast main casing and alloy extension housing. The

                      official line is: Cortina mk.2

                      Early (1970) Capri (pre-facelift) I don't know the

                      differences on these gearboxes: single-rail box.

                      From the tag(*) on my box, Ford told me the box was:

                      Cortina 2.0 litre, 1971-1976, saloon, 3.75 ratio.

Bellhousing           Cortina mk.2 for Kent OHV motor


Essentially the TR4-6 braking system is used throughout. When replacing

discs beware of differing offsets as they may cause fouling on the

upright. Possibly Austin 1800 brakes are another source but this needs checking.

When replacing pads, GT6 ones will fit BUT have a smaller friction material area

than proper TR4-6 ones causing a big groove to wear in the disc. So don't

use GT6 ones !



Early cars may use 16PB calipers and later ones the metric bolted M16

type. Lockheed produce recon. units of the original Girling units.

My S3 uses 16PB inner and M16 outer halves to form

complete caliper units (!)



Mintex M171 material seems fine to me and stop the car very well. As far as 

I can tell Ferodo DS11 material pads are NOT available for TR6 brakes off

the shelf so you will need to get them made up specially If you want this

material. The Ford Escort (mk.2) RS2000 uses (essentially) the same

calipers (i.e. M16) and so its possible to use M171 pads for these cars.



The RS2000 pads have slightly greater surface area. Their part number is 

Mintex MGB 633. You will need to enlarge the holes in the pads used by

the retaining pins as they are smaller in the 633 pads. Don't use the

smaller pins as the pads will move about in the calipers.



It IS possible to fit ventilated discs. Triumphtune do a kit (Part no. SPB3201)

consisting of a pair of discs plus spacers for the calipers which are the

original (Girling 16PB or M16) units and the calipers spacers then

widen the jaws.



Moss/Triumphtune have made available stainless steel caliper pistons.

The part number is 510792SS and they retail at $14.10 each.

They charge around $258.00 for the

kit. I think alloy caliper mounts are available as well. Triumphtune will take

your calipers and fit the spacers if you prefer. I'm told the alloy hubs are not

really strong enough.

  I've not really bothered too much about engine parts since these are

  easily obtained through a Ford dealer. The part numbers are mentioned

  for the bits I happen to know and I've differentiated between standard

  and performance parts but this area is a different ball-game ! In other

  words the parts mentioned here are those required for a standard Vixen

  as when new (whatever that means !). Sources of Kent OHV blocks seem

  to be getting scarcer so it might pay to keep a spare s/h engine

  (or two !) lying around for a rainy day. Gradually the engine will

  get replaced from its present position of popularity. `Greening'

  of engines is important and we will be only allowed 6 %CO emission

  for vehicles from 1962 to 1983.
