4-5 speed box

Recommended Posts

Is the Type 9 gear box a straight swap on my 1300 escort and what would be the pros and cons?

 

I will be traveling 800 miles most weekends

 

Thanks

not a straight swap

you have to change clutch, cluch cable, spedo cable,propshaft,gearbox mounts and move the hole for the gearlever

Sounds a lot of work mate but most of these bits are available off the shelf.

 

If your driving that many miles ( respect ) you will get the money back in no time with saved fuel etc. :D
