Ford Type 9 5 speed as fitted to Capri 2.8i, Granada 2.8i, 280 Brooklands etc, fully reconditioned and uprated with a SUPER HEAVY DUTY stub axle/laygear bearing. This was a modification by Ford only fitted to the later 2.8/2.9 2wd XR4i/Scorpio and 4x4 sierra but never to the Capri 2.8i / Granada, despite what youll read in magazines and online. It shouldnt be mistaken for the longer needle bearing modification which still uses the layshaft.The ratios are 1st 3.36, 2nd 1.81, 3rd 1.26, 4th 1, 5th 0.825. This doesnt fit Vauxhall XE, Pinto or Crossflow engines as the input shaft is too long and its not advisable to cut it. If youd like one to suit these applications, let me know (there might be one in my other items too).
The removal of the layshaft allows greater lubrication to the front of the laygear where most of the Type 9 problems occur. Tuners like Turbo Technics and Caterham used this format on their V6 gearboxes that were coupled to power upgrades. The main casing has been powder coated in satin black, the tail housing and sandwich plate have been powder coated in metallic silver and all the bolts and covers have been electroplated.
You will need to modify a bell housing to accommodate the stub axle, simple cutout at the bottom. No speedo drive is included, let me know if you need one and Ill see what I have available. THE GEARBOX REQUIRES OIL TO BE ADDED (NOT SUPPLIED). The oil should be 75W90 Semi synthetic GL4 specification. Other modified/spec gearboxes are available, message with your requests.
