Search wasn't functioning and i am curious as to being able to use my existing auto bellhouse or do i need a specific one for manual? Picked up a conversion kit minus the bellhousing and clutch cable and am on a budget due to insurance renewal, a new pc and buying kit, two of those being paid for before auto decided to pack it in.
Cheers and look forward to more questions, lol. Also most likely going to fork over for a new clutch. -_-

thats what i thought! :lol:

then he proceeded to back himself up by showing me how much a reco gearbox on its own is worth, but i replayed with: (yeah 700 exchange....thats not a full manual conversion straight from ford is it?) :?

Bloke rang me telling me he found it, saves me some dollars. Also found a brake pedal so i don't have to cut mine, rapt as.
I got quoted 550 to fit a second hand auto i supply or 1200-1500 to convert if i supplied everything. That was by a local transmission joint who didn't have a clue about the malwood clutch pin. Lol.
