The Lotus Excel made during the '80's came with a toyota W58 transmission. You can use that bell housing and a locally sourced toyota W-series transmission to convert your car over. Mike Taylor of has just finished making a kit to convert the lotus bell housing over for use in the cable transmission instead of the hydraulic setup that was used in the Excel.

I am currently building a JH race car and got the bell housing and clutch bits from Mike. I haven't driven it yet, but it looks like a quality setup.
