I don't think good money will be required. Small money should see you right. Someone here is bound to have one.

comnpletely different gear ratios in the 4x4 i suspect... you's be driving at much slower speeds than you were before the swap.

According to Alan.D, that gearbox is £100 too much :). i will have a word with a mate of mine as he has a spare reconditioned gearbox, but he will probably either not sell it, or want a couple of hundred pounds for it :(.

You could also try www.simpsonsalvage.com as they have a panda 1000 in for scrap.

edit - here you go... http://www.simpsonsalvage.com/site/...erby=MakeModel&t=B&date_filter=3&value=164042

i think the gears are different in a 93 onwards panda, that one is 89... thanks for looking though. What year, model is your mates reconditioned gearbox for?

Its a gearbox for a 1994 CLX panda, and its a 5 speed. I will get in touch with him tomorrow, and see if he wants to sell. The only problem i can see is getting it from Gosforth in Newcastle, to Solihull.

any idea how long ago it has been reconditioned? The garage tried a reconditioned one and it was no good... If its definitely a good gearbox i'd offer a good price for it, and would pay for postage..

Kelvedon autos (the best little scrap yard in Essex) had a 5 speed in a 93/94 fizz. They are a bit far away for you, maybe worth a call? 01376 583592
