Have purchased a used hood to add to escort we bought w/o a hood.


I believe all escorts have metric threads, so your 5/16"-18 would strip the holes or bolts or nuts. Could you find another escort and "borrow" a bolt out of it long enough to identify it so you could buy some? If "push came to shove", you drill the holes a little bigger, and then just use nuts and bolts there instead of threading the holes.
God bless your efforts.

I need the torque specs for a 96 grand cherakee 4.0 motor


Hello, different size, grade, thread size, application will always have something to do the torque specification of bots, nuts, plug etc.


Remember, to get the proper torque specification on bolts, nuts and threaded holes. If these have been used on an engine and it being repaired/overhauled. To get the proper torque spec these items will be need to cleaned inside and out, threads on bolts need to be straightened, and the same for nuts and bolt holes in the engine block, head, timing cover----all bolts, nuts, threaded casting holes all need to be rework to presence condition... Almost new in shape. Now, once this is done you can get the proper torque requirement and to get these spec. all bolts, nuts, threaded holes need to be oiled first. They the torque can be set properly as to the manufactures specifications. Also, there are not set standards for torquing head bolts on a 265 cu/in Chevy and compared to a Ford 265 cu/in engine, they will be totally different.



If you don't the torque spec. go to your local library they have many American Auto Maintenance Manual that will give the all the information that you need. So, just remember all bolts, nuts, machined holes with thread need to cleaned and resized the threads. To torque any bolt will need to oiled--not much.... I hope this helps you and I wish lot of luck. GB...stewbison

Is a 2000 ford escort manual compatable with a 2001 ford escort zx2


All ZX2 transmissions will work no matter what year. If you are trying to use a sedan transmission, it is possible with some modification. The sedan transmission has one threaded hole for the starter that will need to be drilled out. There are, I think, three bolt holes for the bell housing that won't line up but that isn't a problem. Otherwise, it fits just fine. The gearing is taller in the sedan and you'll notice the car won't accelerate as fast but your gas mileage should get better.

Directions to install witter towbar on ford focus


Towbars are fairly simple, if the towbar fits the frame, you are all set, if it doesn't, you have the wrong one. If there are holes that line up, use them, if not, you can drill through the frame very easily, it is soft steel, Put some bolts in there that go through about 1/2 longer than the frame parts. Support the towbar with a jack, make sure it stays put. Drill a small pilot hole first with about 1/4 inch bit, then go to the hole size of the towbar, 1/2 inch. Those step bits work great, put in the bolts, tighten them up, all set. As far as positioning this thing, I would make the ball stick out just past the bumper, if no hole line up. You don't want to be smashing the trailer into the bumper all the time, so make sure it is enough, but not so much that you trip over it. Hope this helps.

How to Remove the Rear Bumper - BA Fairmont/Falcon


Firstly, you need to remove the rear splash shields from within the rear wheel arches and also the tail lights. Then remove the scrivets from the lover edge of the bar. Next remove the scuff plate at the boot opening and fold the carpet back. There are four nuts which hold the bar on, undo these and then lift the sides of the bar up and pull out. The bar has large clips on the side which hold it in place.

Ford fairmont 1992


first to remove the fan you will need a big spanner 1, 1/4 inch to be precise and a large hammer. with the fan belts still on and tight from the top, place the spanner on the nut just behind the fan with the spanner pointing straight up. then jar the spanner with the hammer towards the battery,(opposite direction to a normal bolt) once jared loose you should be able to turn the nut off. when refitting just do up firm with spanner
