HI,
Just bought a Mark 1 Escort, with a Borg Warner Diff, having trouble with rear brakes. The question is, are there different brake shoes available?????

Early Escort rear brakes are a proper lash up. Why don't you convert to Sierra discs and be done with it?

check out escort owners forums/clubs or sites such as petrol heads.

Thanks, problem now solved, missing parts and 2 left hand brake adjusters did not help, finally found a right hand adjuster, and sorted out missing parts, now have great rear brakes.. Very Happy Very Happy
