    Hi all
    just started attempting fitting a type 9 gearbox to my 1600 crossflow. I have noticed that the bellhousing is somewhat diffrent on the 5 speed box compared to the 4 speed. the 5 speed is from a serria.also i have noticed that the hole for the release arm is in a diffrent place. is there diffrent types of bellhousing? can anyone help?
    thanks
    Bob

    i have read the articles and i think that the bellhousing are a diffrent shape for diffrent engines, i was under the impression that they were all the same pattern. so its going to be a bit of a problem finding which one will fit the 1600 crossflow, a trip to the scrapyard is needed me think

    Hi Alan
    tried the bellhousing and hey presto the 5 speed fits all except the shield between the box and the engine which needs modifiying to allow the starter motor to fit in a diffent position. found a clutch (one from a 1600 sierra)at carparts direct which is arriving on wed. i think this conversion will work. i will keep in touch and let you know how i get on
    cheers Bob
