Francisco, I now have a manual rear wheel drive gearbox to mate with my HyPer 9. Are you interested in making an adaptor plate that fits the bell housing and a coupler to connect the shaft to the gearbox spline? If yes, are you able to give me a not likely to be above cost please?

I would need to have a look at the gearbox and the motor before I can get any idea of price.
Are you going to keep the clutch or will you go direct to the input shaft?
If you have time to bring the gearbox and motor to Lawnton let me know and we can arrange a time.

Francisco, I had typed a message to you earlier today but cannot see it on the site, so will do it again.
I now have a rear wheel drive manual gearbox; nothing unusual about it. I am presently planning to go clutchless. I am wondering if you are interested in machining an adapter plate and coupling for it? If yes, I would like an indication please of a likely not to exceed cost. You already know my motor is a HyPer 9. I am assuming that the work involved is standard enough that you do not need to see the gearbox beforehand, but understand you will probably want to see it before giving a final quote.
Also, an indication please of time the job is likely to take.

The most expensive part is the aluminium. How much is used depends on the size of the bell housing and how thick it needs to be. The thickness will depend on the lengths of the shafts.
Can you PM me to discuss further?
