Any Luck?? I have a smooth case that has been sitting since the late 1960s. I cannot remember why I changed to the ribbed case. May have been synchros. I could have a look inside and see if all the teeth are there.

Might even be worth it to buy the case and put rib case gears in it.

Not to steal a thread in the classified section but I did not realize that you could put the rib case bits inside a smooth case.
Are you sure???

Yep, although I've not done it myself. There's some info here: https://www.morrisminorforum.com/phorum/read.php?2,29291 Gerard has apparently done it, maybe he will chime in.

I have a smooth case from a 1960 BE. It has had the covers off only for curiosity's sake. Is missing the speedo drive bits. Yours for the shipping from Southport, NC.
Let me know - I should get notices here of replies, PMs, etc....

I've been running rib case gears in a smooth case transmission since the late '80s.
