  1. Hello All again,

    I am now confident I have everything sorted to fit the RX8 5 speed gearbox to my AJ30 engine. I have had it all together, it turns over on the starter nice and easy and the clutch operates/springs go over centre mid travel of the slave cylinder.

    The parts I have used are:

    • Freddy's adaptor plate
    • Mondeo flywheel
    • Jaguar Starter Ring
    • Jaguar starter motor
    • Mondeo clutch cover
    • Generic 23 spline Ford clutch plate (sold as a TVR spare)
    • Mazda 6 slave cylinder
    • Crankshaft to flywheel spacer
    • Crankshaft pilot bearing and flywheel locator adaptor
    • Adapted RX8 clutch arm pivot 

    All that's left to do is to get the flywheel and spacer statically balanced.

    I have now moved on to making the air intake plenum chamber. I am going for a classic looking plenum chamber sitting on top between the cam covers. 

    The next update will be in a while as I am now back working abroad to get more pennies!

    I have attached some pics to show what I have been up to. I am very close to having a kit for full rebuild.
