    Colin,

    Andy had to do some re-engineering on the same part for his Hawk. See here:
    https://www.stratosec.com/Forum/show...septogyl/page7

    Although in his case it was prompted by the use of a sequential box.

    Is your 6 speed Alfa gearbox from a 166?, as in, no diff. mount facility like a 156/GTA/GTV has?

    Interesting photos, yea so I started with a 5 speed and built the engine mounts thinking I was going to use that. Then the rules changed for our class and we could run a 6 speed. I could have fabricated a gearbox mount to suit the 6 speed but thought I'd try and recover the work I'd already done plus I think the way I have it setup now gives me some good exhaust routing options

    I understand.

    The standard 166 6 speed set up, does have that alloy 'foot' mount on the right side.
    The 156, 147, and 6 speed GTVs with the longer inter shaft don't. I would think the GT falls into that category too?

    Next video, got the cables so sorted out the other end of the shifter system, very happy with the result mostly as the gears appear to be in their correct location!

    Great video yet again. I wish I had your machining and fabrication skills (and equipment)!
