    You'll need to change all the linkage at the top too.

    it can be done, I've done it a couple of times but ages and ages ago - seem to remember that the selector housing on the depender is shorter but swapping one to the other works

    tis to sort of job where it pays to dismantle them both side by side laying out the parts in a logical order in the hope that all will become clear at some point

    Got my box out and stripped down the fookin input shaft bearing is in a zillion pieces, so no point swapping it over to the disco box

    the 1 gears set, one nearest the bell housing look worn but not chipped or missing teeth guess its has a lot of stick in first gear in its 213k life, rest of it looks fine.
