Re: 5 speed into mk2 escort manual tunnel

Ed, the easiest way to set the tunnel up is use a TC/TF 2.0 cortina gearbox as they are identical to escort except the stick is back a further 3in ,the same as the Sierra box. The body mounts won't line up but are close and then you can lightly modify (or make) the gearbox mount to suit.
The raised stick hump is for when a zetec is installed , the motor sits slightly higher over the Xmember and to keep things in line the raised tunnel was made to fix the rear tilt problem . Sierra box doesn't need this .
If you need the gearbox hole part for the tunnel they are easy to make up , i show how i did one on my Anglia build thread a few(10) years ago
