Gear box cover


Recommended Posts

Hi Rob

Ive just fitted a Racetorations fibreglass 2 piece cover. It’s a mould taken from the original fibreboard design, but you still need to drill holes for the bolts into the floor and around the front flange and centre inner flanges.

The rear section comes away separately allowing access to propshaft, and overdrive solenoid etc, and a separate cover for the speedo drive.

It does fit well but drilling the holes is time consuming. I stuck a drill up from beneath the car then filed holes to suit. The self tappers provided are okay, though I put spire nuts around the join of front and rear sections so the screws wouldn’t eventually strip out the threads.

And if you want to use the extra access ports make sure your carpet can be lifted without removing the H frame after  you reinstall the cover.
