Burton Power has announced that it can now offer a single-piece propshaft based on the Group 1 version to fit all standard RS2000s or Escort Mk1/2 using a Rocket or five-speed gearbox and an English or Atlas axle.


This single-piece propshaft has been made much stronger than the original two-piece item through the use of a larger diameter tubing and removal of the centre bearing. It is suitable as a direct replacement for the original prop or for competition use.

It is a high-quality item manufactured in the UK, not a cheap inferior import. Most imports use rather crude forgings which are heavier and the tubing specification can often be suspect.

The tube specification used on Burton propshafts is SAE 1020/1040, as per the original factory specification.

The end float in the universal joints is controlled by varying the thickness of the circlips which gives a smoother joint action and better control over straightness and dynamic balance.

All Burton shafts are checked to ensure straightness and have runout on any part of the tube that is no greater than 0.25mm (compared to original specification of 0.35mm). Dynamic balance is at 3000rpm to ISO specification G16. All Burton propshafts are now fitted with an upgraded transmission sleeve to eradicate any reliability issues under extreme race conditions.

Order as PROPENG at £218.95 (inc VAT)
