A wee update. so I've been busy working on new gearbox Mazda rx8 6 speed to fit onto my st170. So I bought an adapter plate for the engine. Thanks to rv8 for offering up his engine and Morris as a donor car so I didn't have to strip mine. So I bought an adapter plate an tipical the holes didn't line up?
After a little cursing we decided to weld up and redrill. Finally after 4 hours later plate was on and gearbox fitted we tried it into Scotts car. And low n behold the plate hits both sides of the tunnel. A little trimming needed but it's in. The box is the same length as a type 9 the gear leaver is in the same place so the tunnel doesn't have to be altered and the propshaft fits as well. The only issue is the oil seal at gearbox side will have to be changed or I change the prop to rx8 one!
