I have "acquired" (brother dumped it in my garage, emigrated to Australia and has now decided he is going to stay out there!) a TVR Tasmin (wedge) and I've decided to fix it up.
Apparently it has a Ford Pinto engine @ 2.0 ltr.
I think 105 (115?) of Dagenham's donkeys is plenty (for now ;D) in such a light car but I think a good upgrade will be to replace the 4-speed gearbox with a 5-speeder (Type 9 has been mentioned to me).
Does anyone know if any old T9 will fit my Pinto? There seems to be a different one for Pinto and the later (Cologne?) engines. Or is that just the bell housing?
Also, does my Taz have the 1" @ 23 spline input shaft (Type E) gearbox or is it going to be a Type 3 (7\8" @ 20 splines)?
hi matey im prob one of the best to ask as ive prob fitted and trashed most ford boxes im me time, the pinto t9 will fit perfectly as it was the set up i had in me escort and has been used in most sirras for years as well as alot of kit cars me luch is running out so give me a call (07799645200) if u wana know what fits with what mike
much agreed thats the reason y i put it in as 4th on the motorway costs "1 million dollors" and is not good on an ageing pintos cam, a prop to be custom made is £138 quid and the mount well u can modifi a standard one or u can get one off the shelf for the job, i just made one out of box steel
