If I'm not much mistaken, most (all?) Ford Type 9s have a separate bellhousing. Will you make the adapter to adapt the JH 4-speed bellhousing to the T9 gearbox? If so, send a PayPal address and a price my way, because I would like one!

I think it will be a lot easier to make an adapter between bellhousing and gearbox rather than between engine and bellhousing. First of all, the piece is a lot smaller, so it will be cheaper. Second, the only worries for integration into the car are gearbox mount, drive shaft, speedo drive and stick position. I think the latter should be fairly close, but there is more than one variant of the T9 too.

There are hundreds of T9s within a 50 mile radius, Sierra and Scorpio were very popular cars here in the 80s. Loads of nice extras available too if the standard box is too weak for you, http://www.burtonpower.com has lots of different gear sets.
