Re: 1275 engine, 5 speed gearbox, & propshaft

Toyota gearbox to A series engine for Midgets & Sprites was a recognised conversion a couple of decades ago, not a bodge.
Special bellhousings were made to facilitate mating them together.
Dellow in Australia was one manufacturer, possibly Frontline over here too.
Phil can no doubt add more detail!

Re: engine upgrade.

frm JLH:-
"We no longer offer this modification, but do have a limited number of the conversion kits left in stock."

now why would they drop it - is there an inherent problem, or maybe parts shortage?
