That sounds good, doesn't it?
Seems to be all i need for a conversion, what do you think?
Buy it, stick it in, look for an R380 while you drive.
I had a 4 cyl box in my V8 and it was fine until the input bearing got too noisy, but in all fairness to the box, it was already tired when fitted, and was treated with little respect......
I found two offers suitable for me.
This one above,
and a second one on another plattform with all the parts for around 500 GBP.
But i dont have a serial for the second one, it is still in a car (a cobra with 3.5 v8 and the owner knows it is working fine) and will be removed in february
I used the standard 3500S cable, I just needed to open out the end of the outer cable a little as the LT77 driven gear is slightly too big to fit inside, and I had to modify the clamp as the flange on the cable as a bit too small.
The spigot bush is a brass bush which sits in the centre of the flywheel and supports the end of the gearbox input shaft. The P6 one and the LT77 one are very different, as the LT77 (SD1) has a much smaller hole.
