Busy catching up after a weekend away, so I'm just getting to this now.

Mat - it is possible for a BE1 box to be mated to a round port engine, as the engine changed before the gearbox (87 or 88 for the engine, and late 89 for the box I believe). If it is a BE1 box I'm still interested (I seem to be collecting them at the moment!). Best way I know of telling which is which is to look at the end cover - if there's a level plug then it's a BE3, but if all the bolts are the same then it's a BE1.

I'm happy to be corrected but that looks like a BE3 box to me, as I can't see a filler plug in the upper picture - when it's in the car it's at the front of the box under the bonnet on a BE1, which I think I would see here. On the BE3 it was replaced by a filler / level plug on the end of the box, accessible from the wheel arch, and out of sight on both the pics above.

Unfortunately, it doesn't fit anything I have.
