The goal is to mate a LT77 Rover 5 Speed Bellhousing onto a MT75 4×4 gearbox. I also wanted to upgrade the clutch.
Unfortunately, I have a lot of research to do.
One of the first things to establish was whether the MT75 and LT77 have similar input shafts. The quickest way to check, was with an old Sierra MT75 clutch on an LT77 gearbox. In case you are wondering the LT77 has got a larger input shaft and the two do not fit together.
Therefore, I will be using a Ford MT75 clutch; of some description; mounted onto a re-drilled Rover manual flywheel. Much of the MT75 bellhousing will be removed and replace by a LT77 hybrid.
