### 5 speed to 4 speed

Posted:

**Mon Jul 18, 2005 2:39 pm**Hi,

I've been looking for a +2 S-130/4 for ages now, to replace my lamented previous example, but I just can't seem to find one that measures up to how I want, (I'm a bit picky )

Plenty of 5 speeds around though, so I was wondering if anyone could give me their opinions on buying a 5 speed and converting it.

Specifically, is it a cost effective solution. I assume the bits I will need are, Bell housing, box (obviously) mounting plate and prop shaft and that these will not be too expensive but, (this is the reason I say cost effective,) how much should I expect this work to cost at a specialist? (Probably Paul Matty)

I could probably do it myself but time and garage space may be prohibitive, hence the question.

Cheers
