Vauxhall 2.0XE Engine to Ford Gearbox Cable Clutch Bellhousing 7 Degrees
This bellhousing allows the Vauxhall 2.0XE Engine to be connected to the Ford Type E (Rocket 4 sp) and Type 9 (Sierra 5 sp) gearboxes using a cable clutch. The bellhousing allows the engine to be located in its original 7 degree position.
The bellhousing allows the engine to be installed longitudinally in the 7 degrees inclination utilised in the transverse installation, which can be useful if retaining the original sump or a manifold built for seven degree installation.

* The quick release option allows quicker gearbox removal and fitting by moving the 4 internal gearbox to bellhousing bolts to the outside of the gearbox. This allows the gearbox to be removed whilst leaving the bellhousing in place, making a difficult job much easier.
If you do not specify the quick release option you will need 4 of 12mm x 1 1/2mm pitch cap head screws (available here),which are fitted inside the bellhousing into the tapped holes in the front face of the gearbox .
