I believe 4.2s use the white ones? What is the difference? Would blue ones work in a 4.2? If so, I might be interested in a set.
White are Anticlockwise, 2 needed by 4.2

Blue are Clockwise, 2 needed by 4.5

SpeedSix needs one of each

NB direction of rotation refers to viewing the 'D' in the back of the TPS.

Guys - I have a 4.2 so would need the white ones, but if you search eBay on the 4.5 Ford Part number [88WF 9B989 CA from the parts list] there's a vendor in Turkey selling 9 of them for £32.00 each

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Escort-Granada-Sie...

If you look closely at the image you can see the Ford part number stamped on them so they look pretty correct even though they don't have the 'blue' back of the original ones - if of interest I'd suggest getting the vendor to measure to ensure they are correct but though this might help



Places I found today that might have these...

Great find - Excellent price

I assumed they'd all go instantly, but still 9 left 24hrs later

The demand isn't anywhere like as high as I expected

Thanks Paul - me too!

Still it's probably one of those things that everyone panics to get when they need them, but forgets to squirrel away when they are for sale - I like your strategy of having 4 spare beer

BTW for all the 4.2 owners out there (or S6ers needing one of these) I just bought 4 backups of reconditioned ones for £9.95 each from here on eBay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/370932105447

Following ukkid's good advice smile

For that price - is it worth enquiring over the 4.2 ones as well? It'll be worth having some new spares

^^^^ this. Although they are currently readily available for around £22.50, I'd be up for a few spares if they were priced similarly to the black ones. yes
