2.9 Cossie in a mk2

Post  Admin on Sun Oct 25, 2009 8:52 am

As some of you know i'm planning on putting a 2.9 24v Cossie engine into my mk2, i have been told the engine will drop straight in but unsure which gearbox to use as i have read that some boxes will put the gearstick too far back, if i use the autobox that comes with the engine would that line up to the same position as the current manual one, or would it be best to use my current type 9 box as i have heard of these breaking under the power of a Cossie engine, if i use the Cossie auto box is there any electrical wiring involved? i know i would need to change the pedal box and provide a starter inhibiter and kickdown etc, i just want to do this conversion the simplest way possible.

The cossie auto box is longer than the stock box, it also has much larger casing and would require some tunnel bashing. It also has its own loom and ECU. I have heard folks using the Mk3 granada MT75 box with good results, the gear lever would be in much the same place too.Type 9 would work if fitted with H/D bearings (rally spec) Problem with all manual boxes is to find bell housing to fit Cossie lump.

i thought the existing bell housing on a type 9 or mt75 would fit the cossie lump, if not how easy are they to find?

No, the standard bellhousings will not fit, you can get adaptor plates for MT75 but not sure for type 9. Its something to do with where the starter fits.

Picked up a hybrid box today, mt75 with v6 bellhousing and longer shaft to fit the 2.8 flywheel, this box has been totally rebuilt and has not been used on a car since the rebuild, the guy was going to put it in his Capri but had change of plans, the question i am asking now is which clutch, do i use the 2.8 or 2.9 one?

Count the number of splines on the input shaft, thats the important part. I think that all other dimensions are the same for 2.8 and 2.9.
