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

By using a larger diameter tubing and not incorporating the centre bearing, this single-piece propshaft is much stronger than the original two-piece item. 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 the Burton Power 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 Power shafts are checked and then corrected for straightness; there is no run-out on any part of the tube greater than 0.25mm (compared to the 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.
