Burton Power has announced that it can now offer its own fully reconditioned Type 9 (also referred to as a ‘Type N’ gearbox in some workshop manuals) five-speed gearbox as an outright sale; no exchange is required.

The gearbox comes with standard gear ratios: 3.65/1.97/1.37/1:1/0.82 and is suitable for Ford four-cylinder engines requiring a short input shaft.

This was Ford’s first rear-wheel-drive five-speed box, based on the four-speed Type E. It features a cast iron main case with an alloy tail housing.

This gearbox is the most commonly used for five-speed conversions on older vehicles, not just for classic Fords but also for other classic makes such as MG and Triumph as well as thousands of kitcars.

Order as part number GBT9150 at £1699.20 inc VAT and for further details contact Burton Power on 0208 554 2281 or visit www.burtonpower.com ENDS.
