Series one 265/6 gearbox x member .

Post by olympia57 » Fri Feb 19, 2021 8:34 am

Rob ( wattsmonkey ) on here has asked me a question that I am having difficulty answering .
He has a choice of three 265/6 x members for me to fit same gearbox into my series one e12 based car .
I've trawled the 'net but so far been unable to determine the correct or best one for the job .
To those that have done such a conversion on a S1 car can you give me any help ?
TIA Don.

For a mid year 1981 looks like the one on the right.

Hey gents, I don't have any input here, but I'm gonna move this thread to the "Mechanical" forum, surely will get more hits there [-o<

Investigation continues.
The part shown is for the twin mount bobbin 265/5 box whereas the correct one for mine shows it to be for the single mount bobbin 265/6 box.
The gearbox to be fitted is a twin mount bobbin 265/6 so the x member shown above looks to be wrong but right ....... :lol:
I've got wattsmonkey , aka Inspector Clouseau, on it .

The middle one!

That's the same one I've got on the 265/5 on the 1984 project car.

Not now, Kato!
