5 speed gearbox

Recommended Posts

I think I know the answer but got to ask,

Mk1 cortina, 
Is there a 5 speed gear box that I can replace my existing stock 4 speed with, that will slot into the space no cutting required and bolt to the precrossflow and existing prop??

The only real options available are the Type 9 and MT75 Ford boxes

both have different input and output size and spline count meaning you wil need a new clutch plate and shorten the propshaft with a new nose to fit the gearbox

So not straight swop then, I assume tunnel needs a bit of modifying too?

The Tina tunnel is quite small in comparison, it's as easy to fit a large tunnel unlike the escorts which can be manipulated into shape to accept the 5 speed.
