    Does the 2 1/4 fit on to the bellhousing of an 80" series 1 gearbox. The 1.6 in my new project has long gone but I have been offered a good series 3 lump.

    Cheers

    As long as you fit the series 1 or 2 clutch to the series 3 engine it will fit fine. Carb is on the otherside of the engine so you will have to extend fuel lines n thotle linkages, other than that its easy.
    And swop the engine mounts over,

    Cheers for that.... All I need now is a front axle and she's moving again.

    Its a 1950 with narrow front and rear springs.... The front axle is missing the short half shaft complete so was going to throw a complete other one on.

    If you fit a later axle with wider u bolt plates it works out ok i did that on the rear of my 80" when i fitted a series 2 axle,

    Is this the same for a front axle.
    I believe the mounting points are different on the later axles due to the narrow spring set up being biased to the edge of the chassis.

    I think they are the same just measure it up! Then you will know for sure, I would go for lwb axle to for the bigger brakes!

    No, you will need a later bell housing. Usually easier to source a later gearbox.
    you will need to weld new engine mountings on the chassis.
