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, has lots of different gear sets.
