Fitting a Type 9 to a 1300 CVH

Can anyone tell me if a 1600 5 speed gearbox will fit a 1300 engine please.

1600 gearbox

yes it will but you'll need to trim a bit off the top of the bellhousing to clear the head (the 1300 block is physically shorter).

The type 9 (5spd / 1600) gearbox can be fitted to a 1300 but you will require the following changes / parts -
T9 Gearbox
T9 Bell housing, which then needs the top edge cutting / machining to fit against the shorter 1300 block.
T9 engine back plate
gearbox mounting bracket from a 1400/1600 or the 1300 one can be cut up and welded back together to suit.
14/1600 speedometer cable as this is longer
1" / 23 spline centre clutch driven plate (215mm diameter) as fitted to certain Sierras or indeed the SS1 14/1600
14/1600 propshaft, which is the same length but has a different nose shaft diameter.

Think that is all.
Starter motor, clutch cover plate and release bearing, gearbox rubber mounting, gear stick, flywheel. These are thankfully all the same.
