No def not from a mk 1 to a mk2. If i remember rightly, the 1.1 gearbox has no couplings for the driveshaft but the 1.2 does (8v and 16v) so i dont think it will interchange even if it fitted....

I have a 01 punto sporting. I used to have a 99 mk1 sporting. I went to go put the 99 5 speed box in and realised there was no holes in the box for the gearbox mounting to bolt into. So I got an old bravo box that was lying around and the mounting fitted perfectly on it... Try to source out a bravo/a gearbox or from another punto

The 1.1 box probably has a lower final drive ratio so see less torque from a less powerful engine so it would appear to be stronger than a 1.2 box.

There are lots of 1.2s about visit a few breakers.

Could Do That But Got Told MK 1 Box Is Hardier

??

That box uses the same internals as the 1.2 16v (some different chassis numbers have a different ratio 3rd gear) and the final drive is very slightly lower. Because the 55 has only 53 bhp, thats 33 less than a sporting of the same era. The final drive has been known to fail on the 1.2 16v as the final drive experiences extra stress from the extra power. I should know, we've broke 2 of those boxes here, the epicyplic gears in mine broke away, working inside the box and made bits of the gears as well as the bell housing and clutch. What a mess that was to clean up :mad: however that was an extreme case scenario, most wont drive atall if failed... So the lesson here is don't be fooled by that advice yer man told you!!

Bravo/a 1.2 16v
Any 1.2 mk 2 Punto
I think the stilo 1.2/1.4 will also fit

Try to source a 6 speed Punto sporting box, low range and a high top gear for economy (y)
