1300 GT Gearbox

Recommended Posts

Morning all.

Just wanting to make sure......

Ive got a 74 1300 Gt LHD.

As part of the conversion to RHD i need to change the gearbox otherwise the starter will foul on the steering column (ive been told this by a few people who have done it).

As i dont want to stray too far from original i want to keep the original gearing.

Would it be as simple as buying a standard RHD 1300 box and swapping the internals over or am i missing something?

 

Plan is to buy a donor box, swap over the internals then send it off for a refresh at a gearbox builders (new seals and bearings).

 

Thoughts please :)

No idea. Its just what ive been told.

As it stands, the steering is on the left and the starter is on the right.

But im looking at starting the conversion in a couple of months and trying to start getting bits together.

I would have thought that it's only the Bellhousing that would need changing on the gearbox.
