If you have sourced a second-hand/reconditioned Ford Type 9 gearbox, we can supply some of the critical parts needed to convert your small chassis Triumph (Herald, Spitfire, Vitesse, GT6) to 5 speed. It is perfectly feasible to carry out your own conversion for a few hundred pounds, compared to spending more than £2000 on an off-the-shelf kit available elsewhere.

 Attention Herald, and Spitfire MKI-IV owners.

There has been an on-going problem with finding a suitable clutch driven plate to undertake a reliable Type 9 conversion to your car. There has been an eye wateringly expensive custom 6 1/2" driven availabe for some time from elsewhere, but it dosn't get over the early cars abilty to prematurely wear out, or destroy cltuch plates if driven with vigour, or if any degree of engine tuning is undertaken.

There is a much more reliable larger diameter (and cheaper!) alternative using off the shelf components available from here, there, and everywhere in between!

Using a s/h Spitfire 1500 flywheel, a set of four flywheel bolt adaptors, a 1500 clutch cover, and a Sierra 1600-2lt driven it's a a simple spannering job.

Look in the Parts Numbers Function above for the Triumph stuff (flywheel, bolt adaptors, clutch cover) and buy the Sierra driven (7 1/.4") from your prefered intenet provider, or Ebay for a few quid.
