Depth of 4 speed bellhousing

PostPost by: worzel » Wed Jan 04, 2012 9:17 pm


Lots of apologies for asking this again but I've lost the info.

Can any obliging owner let me know how deep the cast iron bellhousing is for a four speed elan plus-if possible-

how far the input shaft protrudes from the front of the four speed box (160mm I think from memory)

how far from the front case of the box the splines begin (85mm from memory)

how long the splined section is (I assume it's the same as a Type 9 ie 43mm)

Many thanks for your trouble.
