The 1.6 pinto boxes will be identical to the 2.0L boxes - only the Sierra ones are different by having an integral bellhousing, gear ratio's are shared by all

nope not even related different splines both ends and a 1600 mk3/4/5 box are usually around 2.3 -1 2nd gear compared to the 2-1 of the 2l box

the only boxes with integral bellhousing is the small engined escorts

That is right 1.6 pinto box is a type 3 box input shaft 7/8" x 20 spline,  2.0 pinto box input shaft 1" x 23 spline, reason I do not have mine rebuilt is I do not have one, I am fitting 2.0 pinto in a MK2 and am waiting on the box, did not really want a five speed. As I said  I find it strange not many years ago the yards were full of scrapped rusty Cortina's,

Yeah it’s incorrect. Only escort box’s have integral bell housing 11 and 1300 are the same 1600 sport Mk2 and 1300 gt/sport mk 1 have have different ratios and can be identified by having a solid tail housing

Integral bell housing type . pinto or cortina/rs 2000 type e or Sierra type 9 4 speed have separate bell housing I hope that clears my comment up cheers

I never did understand the swap and change for different gearboxes in the MK2 lineup in the UK. Here they put the Type E in everything. 1.3 and 1.6 Crossflows and 2.0L Pintos. One gearbox for all, no mucking around on the production line and easy to keep one set of parts. I cant imagine it saves much money in the long run using a slightly weaker box for lower powered engines once you factor in extra production costs and parts storage and the like.

Ford Australia did a wonderful job with the long list of technical and structural improvements and vehicle options they chose to implement on the Australian built Mk2 Escort, compared to the Euro models.   :)

Hi,

 

I am going to both Hertfordshire  and Cornwall in the next 3 weeks, if "OLDWHEELS" wants to sort out with "MATT 74" I can collect and pay for the gearbox and "OLDWHEELS" can pay me and everyone is happy, not 100% sure on the dates, but I am collecting an engine from  Hertfordshire and will be dropping off some parts I have sold to a guy who runs a body shop in Cornwall.

 

So I could pick up a gearbox and drop it off, call it a pint and I am happy.

 

Let me know what you want to do.

 

Cheers Al.
