Hi billybun,

   it's odd, because the crossmember I got is "horseshoe" shaped, i.e. it curves back and down compared with the old one, but it would still make the gearbox catch a reinforcing crossmember in the floor directly above the tail of the gearbox if I hadn't lowered it a bit. Maybe there's different ones. Both the bellhousings were skeleton ones with a fibreglass cover. We had a quick test last night and it makes a dramatic difference to the engine revs. It's actually a lot quieter now even in 4th gear. Must have been all the loose bolts! Unfortunately, the gearbox was of uncertain origin, and 5th is a bit noisy, but bearable. Going to have to take it out again, I suppose.

Still, off in a few hours. See how we go.

Best regards,

Original poster(spionkop) not posted since 2005 and Bill(the roadrunner) not posted since 2006 so I think you will be out of luck getting a reply from either of them.
