would think the diesel g/box would have different gearing so best to stick with a diesel box.do you know the type/number of the box fitted?

the petrol gearbox bellhouseing bolts would be different aswell, wont fit.
a box from a diesel uno or diesel fiorino van might work, same engine and box afaik.

uno 1.0ie RAAAWW!

no sorry i dont know anything about the box, but finding a uno diesel gearbox would be much cheaper and easier,hopefully. does 280 sound about right to get it fixed thanks

definately don't use a petrol gear box... the petrol gear box will be lower specced because it deals with lower torque levels than the diesel... much cheaper to make hence why they don't share a common gearbox...

Plus a diesel engine with a petrol 'box, provided it actually fitted and didn't break, would give a flat-out speed of about 80mph...[xx(]
