I just bought a 95 Escort GT and a 96 Escort Wagon. I am wanting to put the engine out of the GT into the Wagon. I know that transmission/wiring/mounts aren´t the same thats why I bought the hole car. what I want to know is will the clutch linkage and thuradle linkage bolt you or does that need to be swaped aswell. But The most important thing I need to know is will the CV shafts from the wagon bolt in to the trans. if not will the GT shafts bolt in the the wagon suspenion? Any Info. will be very helpful

Thanks

look at it like: every thing conected to the engine has to be swaped over. clutch all linkage, mounts that should stay conected to the engine and trans anny way. wireing should be your only problem, unless you swap out your entire wireing harness, wich i recomend any ways. oh and dont forget that cross member. and another problem is your fuel lines. you will need the drive shafts off the gt , they will slide in to your rotors with no prob. you will find that doing a swap on an escort isnt all that hard.

also since the gt uses a hydrolic clutch, remember to swap the master cylinder from the gt as well because it uses the brake fluid for it.

Thanks for the info. it very helpful. there are a few other thing I was wondering. Will I have to change any bearings or seals when I change the CV shafts? Also will the cross member bolt right in or is there some more fab. needed?

Thanks

nope no changing, every thing is bolt on. but ...... some people like to put the gt´s front suspension on the lx but i find that its bassicaly the same, but i would put the rear suspension and e-brake cable. on the lx from the gt, thats what i did. nothing like locking up the rear wheels and burning down the front, although you should be able to do it without the hand brake.

The lx didn´t come with Macpherson struts and sport springs like the gt did. unless he was changing out the struts and springs I would swap over the entire suspension setup from the gt. ;-)

My wagon Has a 5-speed in it aswell, doesn´t it have a hydrolic clutch aswell or is the escort GT´s only have hydrolic clutchs?

Thanks for all the help guys,
