Does anyone have a spare 1.9 Petrol Gearbox?

Post by adamskibx »

I am going to change my clutch tomorrow, and fingers crossed, the coise is coming from my release bearing or something clutch related, but if its the box, ill be after another. Ive got a TD one but that would probably be stupidly high geared for a petrol engine. So, if anyone has got one, as well as some linkages ill be happy to purchase it if mine is knackered. Cheers, Adam

TD one will be a bit high geared but would be very realxed on the motorway! 27mph per 1000!

LOL yeah I had considered it. I think the only disadvantages would be tricky hill starts (although having been in a TD ZX a lot, 1st doesnt seem much higher), and also a ruined 0-60 time, which I suppose isnt important. As for overtaking and so on, I suppose you'd be able to change down where it would have been pointless before etc, so might not be too bad? Umm. It would be good for economy on long trips though. A friend of mine has just replaced his ZX with a Seat Ibiza TDi, and that does 40 MPH per 1000 RPM in top!

I've got a 16v one, but you'd need to helicoil the bottom thread in. And the ratios are uber short too!

Is it a phase 2 box? i.e. reverse on the end of fifth??

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Cheers for the offers guys, really appreciated. Luckily though, it seems that it was my clutch making all the horrid sounds, and the gearbox input shaft bearing had absolutely zero play in it. The whole linkage thing is a bit confusing. Some people say if I was to fit a late type box, id need late type linkages, but others (including my local citron specialist), say the linkages are all the same and that the only difference with the later ones is that the collar for reverse has a solid spacer inserted instead of a spring, so you cant lift the collar.
