For example the Collector's Guide (Elan and Europa) by John Bolster states:
"Two sets of ratios were available, which affected the overall length of the box and hence that of the propeller shaft..."
This presumably means that only certain ford box cases will fit each type of prop shaft?
What's all that about and has anyone got more details?
I read the same somewhere else - but I can't remember where?

Please take a look at
Early vs Late gearbox tailshaft housings and Mounts
All I can think of is he was referring to the Anglia 105E box that had no synchro on first gear and used a shorter tail shaft housing and a different gear case. The Elan uses the 105 bell housing though.
Anyone else know more, Pete you have anything?
