I may have a 6a pedal box
Don't know if it's different though

6b and 6a pedal boxes are different mainly around the accelerator pedal and accelerator cable attachment

Thanks for letting me know about the difference. Do you think I could use accelerator pedal from my 6b as I’ve got to modify the clutch pedal to suit a cable clutch so I will have to strip it all down anyway?

the one with the yellow accelerator cable is from a 6/6a cable screws into pedal box housing. Black cable from a 6b cable pushes and "clicks" into the pedal box housing. Yes it would be straight forward to adapt the 6/6a accelerator pedal to take the 6b cable. Or get a firm like speedy cables to make you a one off cable.

Thanks for the pictures showing the differences , that is so helpful. I’d be better off with a 6b one if one came up I think but converting an earlier one would be an option if I cannot get one. Anybody got a 6b type?
