Question Abs

On the Series II NC Fairlane it has ABS Brakes, on earlier models like mine (92 NC Fairlane 3.9l) it doesnt.

How difficult and what would it involve to upgrade to ABS on my car? Is it just a matter of fitting sensors? Upgrade to ECU?

just thinkin...

Theres a few things different,

You'd need:
The 4 wheel sensors
Axles and backing plates from an ABS vehicle
Brake lines
Modulator Assembly
Pump Relay
System Relay
Master Cylinder (?)
Front Discs (?)
ABS Ecu (yes its a seperate unit located under the front bumper somewhere)

The best way woud be to find an ABS vehicle and transfer it over. I recently saw an EB2 Ghia at a wrecker and im kicking myseld now I didnt get it since I could have put all the stuff over to my EA including the ABS. The other thing with a donor vehicle would be the wiring loom would definitly be there where a series 1 NC probably wont have it.

Theres probably parts Ive left off or I don't know about also :'(

There used to be a retrofit kit Bendix LC5. If you are very lucky you might find a Ford dealer with it in stock.
