Type 5 with a hydraulic concentric clutch cylinder

I do have a cable pedal box out of a 5 and the fork etc.
But I thought the coupe & 5 pedal arrangement were not interchangeable.
These are the parts I have plus another type 5 in bits & a 2 rod with overdrive on it.
plus the original box in the coupe

Highly unlikely an imperial type 5 will match up to a metric type 9 without mods.
Just need to find out by how much !

Just compared the 3 types I have and they appear the same PCD.
Just need to test one on a type 9

Type 5 with a hydraulic concentric clutch cylinder

Perhaps I should explain, I am looking to keep my coupes hydraulic pedal system and I have had a spare type 5 for many years from a previous scimi.
The coupes's original gearbox stiffens up if you attempt a bit of sprinting , but is perfectly ok as a run around.

Perhaps if anybody near to Cannock Staffordshire with a Type 9 lying around would allow me to try my type 5 Bearing housing cover on.

I think I found 3 or 4 different bearing housings for the type 5!
Do they all have the same bolt pcd and diameter configuration.

I have found this for a type 9 , it would give me a flat face to work from.

Don’t Burton power do one or is only for the Type 9 (although what’s the difference I wonder?).
I have spoken to Burton today and they are not sure if it would work on a type 5
