The old red block engine and M90 gearbox came out without much grief. The gearbox was removed ready to be fitted to the T5 lump. The adaptor plate was drilled and tapped to the hole pattern of the gearbox. The m90 pivot ball was measured and was 24mm long (RHD side)but the pivot ball from the m47 gearbox was 30mm (LHD side) long so with the aid of 2 8mm washes the pivot ball was the required length of 34mm. Had to grind the corner off the drivers side lower mount so the steering column would miss.
So today the T5 lump and m90 gearbox was fitted into the car. What a PITA, had to drop the cross member by 40 so the sump could fit over the top. Once passed the cross member it dropped in perfectly and lined up with all the mounts.
