BX 16 gearbox swap

Post by NeilGP » Mon Apr 27, 2015 6:31 am

Can a B2C engines Gearbox be swapped with a 171 engines gearbox?

I want to swap my 1983 BX 16 gearbox with a 1989 BX16 gearbox but before I buy want to make sure that this can fit without any issues.

Sounds like one's a BE3/1 and the other's the later BE3/5. Just check whether one you're buying has reverse next to 1st like yours does. If it's next to 4th you'll need to swap the gaiter as well.
I have zero patience for your tedium.
