This one is listed as for the early cortina - maybe worth checking - the E7124 matches part of the part number from the Elan parts number.

There are two types of EARLY synchro units for 1st/2nd gear - the main difference being the size of the hole for the splines that match to the mainshaft. To help you get the correct one you should measure the hole or the size across the splines on the mainshaft.
However, a close ratio gearbox (2.5:1 1st gear) should have the earliest version which has the smaller hole with less splines. This gearbox is easily identified with the removable sleeved bush under 1st gear.

yes the sleeved bush version is definitely the one I have.
