Adapter Plate for Ford Bellhousing to 2.8 Ford Gearbox
£47.25 – £57.25
Adapter plate which fits between any of our Ford gearbox bellhousings and a Type 9 (Sierra) 2.8 gearbox. The 2.8 gearbox uses a longer 1st motion shaft hence the need for an adaptor plate.
The plate has a thickness of 20mm, which accommodates most input shaft additional lengths between 20mm and 32mm (some Caterham variants have the shorter length).
Some heavy duty gearboxes have a boss for a heavy duty layshaft bearing. Please check your gearbox and choose the option below if you require an additional recess for this.
You will also need longer bolts for this conversion.
Machined to order (lead time approximately 3 days).
Purchased to allow a Caterham 6 gearbox with a long input shaft to mate with a 'short shaft' bellhousing.
Extra machining for uprated layshaft bearing was asked for and it was all delivered within 4 working days.
It is a quality billet aluminium adapter that does the job at a reasonable price. The only issue was that the Caterham layshaft bearing cut out was slightly too high for the shaft. Some minor adjustment with a sanding wheel solved the problem.
Recommend product and an efficient company to deal with.
Really well machined and does exactly what it needs to do. No shortening of input shaft required on my 2.8 box like you need do with some of the other spacers on the market. Highly recommended.
Well made accurate adaptor, supply was quick and well packaged. Although the one supplied originally was incorrect, this was addressed quickly with no drama. The adapter is a very good tight fit on my type 9 gearbox which is reassuring knowing it has been machined to a high standard.
