    Re: Smooth case trnny

    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/pho...ad.php?2,29291 Gerard has apparently done it, maybe he will chime in.

    Re: Smooth case trnny

    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....
    Happy Motoring,

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