803cc engine and gearbox

Postby Andymoor94 » Wed May 13, 2020 7:03 am

Hello,

Though not available yet, I will be selling my 803cc engine and gearbox, both recently rebuilt (to my understanding and basic visual inspection) and repainted. It will come with the oil filter reducer, just for your peace of mind.

These will become available once I've been able to source the 948cc engine and gearbox that will replace them.

Please note, I will be retaining the gearstick for myself so that won't be included unfortunately.

If you wish to retain the 803 'pudding stirrer' gear lever to keep the interior looking original, then I advise against selling the 803 box. You will need to split it to 'marry' the 803 box rear casing with the 948 box bellhousing. You will also have to swap the 803 speedo drive gear on to the 948 main shaft. If you want to retain the 803 reverse gear selection (i.e. lifting the gearstick to engage reverse) you will also have to use the 803 reverse selector rod in the 948 box. Otherwise you risk accidentally going into reverse gear when trying to engage fourth - not a good idea, especially when on the move! :o

Wow, great shout! That'll save me from kickflipping on a country road. Just so happens that I have a lead on a 948 box of unknown condition going for me, so that'll work.

Definitely make sure to change the speedo drive gear on the 3rd motion shaft as mentioned by myoldjalopy - otherwise, you won't be able to change the screw-in speedo drive that meshes with it, and your speedo will over-read by around 50 % (1000 tpm vs. 1600 tpm). Trust me, it's infuriating!!!
