    Type 9 Gearbox

    Hi, Does anyone have a spare type 9 sitting in the garage that you are looking to sell? I'm based in Warwickshire and will collect from a couple of hour radius Thanks, Ian
  2. Well my bhg e6 failed yesterday. Anyone got an updated t9 5 speed for sale? Just looking at options before I buy the bits to rebuild/send it off... Thanks.

    Checking Oil Levels

    Hi All, I have a K-Series factory built westfield and assume I have a type-9 box (I don't know if having a rover engine would mean that I have a different box but doubt it). I have a very mild gearbox leak and keen to see if I need to top up my oil. From what I can read, there is no way of telling if you have enough oil in the car but get some more oil and fill it up until it overflows... can anyone tell me if this is right?! On a separate note, I understand that the gearbox filler is a pain to get to and the best way is to drill a hole in the footwell - again any advice would be much appreciated. Many thanks, Josh

    T9 Gearbox

    Having recently purchased an upgraded gearbox for my car, I now have a standard Ford T9 Gearbox (5 Speed) for sale. The box came from a Pinto engined car and as far as I know it has standard Sierra ratios. It is in a clean condition and was working satisfactorily when removed from the car. This is a heavy item but I have crated it (see photo) and will ship to the UK at purchaser's cost. I am looking for £300 for the gearbox plus shipping costs or it may be collected if buyer prefers. I am based in Aberdeen.

    Gearbox popped on Day 1 of new purchase

    Hi, I'm a new member. Just picked up a 1990 Westfield SeiW, with a QED race spec C20XE, mated to a Type 9 5 speed, with strait cut gears. Anyway drove it about 90miles and lost gears 1-4, but kept 5th. Managed to limp it home, but it appears the Roll pin in the gear selector block has sheared or fallen out. I can't get access to change the pin in situ, nor do I want bits of roll pin kicking around inside the box. So I'm pulling the box out. My question being, Is it even possible to get the box out without taking the engine with it? (my chassis has the removal able gearbox cross member)

    Gearbox and prop wanted

    Has Eny one got a 4 speed e type or 5 speed type 9 gearbox and prop to fit crossflow engine in the back of the shed gathering dust we would be interested, at the right price. Please pm us thanks liz and chris
  7. Just a quick question for all the builders out there, did anybody bother with the access hole for the gearbox oil access hole? Was spotted by my local club the other weekend when they came around for a look at progress that I have "err missed it" , and I have since asked the factory to have a look at one of there cars, and it appears they are not currently putting an access hole in at all? i had it in my mind to fit a 50 mm blind grommet but, if its not needed might not bother?

    Type 9 Gearbox Input Shaft Length

    I am planning to have a refurbished Type 9 gearbox delivered to a garage ready to fit rather than them taking the gearbox out and then having to order one in. The problem I have is that, without taking the gearbox out first, I don't know whether to order a long or short input shaft. From the information I have been able to find online, it seems that I most likely have a short input shaft as the long input shaft seems to be for a V6 engine. Before I place my order, is this a reliable assumption? Secondly, is there any way that I can double-check this without dismantling first? I assume I can measure the bell housing but I don't know what measurement would indicate long or short input shaft.

    Gearbox decisions

    So I have finally decided that I am fed up with the ratios of my standard type 9 gearbox! I have a C20XE, circa 210Bhp (limiter kicks in at 7000rpm), 3.6 rear diff with 185/69/14 rear wheels. I use the car mostly for quick country road driving to work and I have my first trackday lined up this summer. I don't want a straight cut box as im not a fan of the noise they make. I would quite like to rebuild my current box with a kit. I enjoy getting my hands dirty and as I have never rebuilt a gearbox, except for a couple of boat outboards and so I would like to give it a go! I may buy a second standard donor box to do this as my current one is in great working order. Budget wise, the less I spend the happier Mrs A will be! My questions are: - What would be my best ratios (does anyone have the same set up as me)? - Who would be good to buy from in terms of warranty and customer support? - Does anyone have a gearbox that they might sell either as a donor or one to spec? Many thanks! Randy

    Type 9 Rebuild Checks

    Evening All, I spent the winter months stripping my type 9 box to give it a refresh of bearings and also to learn how they are put together. Whilst everything has seemingly gone ok and its now back together, I was just wondering if there are any checks that I should be doing before I get it back in the car and on the road? I can select all gears with ease, exactly the same as before and there are no strange sounds or clunks when moving through the box. I've tripple checked all torques and I am pretty happy with how it feels/looks. Obviously I'd be absolutely gutted to put it back in the car and find under a bit of load it just doesn't want to play ball. Any best practice tips or advice?

    Type 9 Layshaft Bearing

    Evening All, I've stripped my type 9 box and have bought a replacement kit consisting of the bearings/gaskets/seals from bearingkits.co.uk (http://www.bearingkits.co.uk/FORD-TYPE-9-GEARBOX-REBUILD-KIT/1238.htm) and when I've come to fit the new layshaft bearing it would appear the inner race is still on the shaft. In the kit I have bought, the bearing is complete and the inner race does not split out from the outer. To make matters more confusing, with a bit of research I've found this product (https://transmission-rebuild-kits.co.uk/product/ford-type-9-rear-layshaft-bearing/) which would suggest the two are split. Are these completely different bearings or is there a difference in layshafts dependant on the type of box? Anybody come across this? I was quite pleased with myself for tackling this as a project and was gutted with this slight hurdle, hopefully its an easy one! Cheers Chris
  12. Hi all, Looking to go down a different route with my Westfield 7 SE build so I have a zero miles since build Zetec 2.0 with Dunnel Option 3 kit (Circa 215bhp) as per here http://www.dunnellengines.com/zetec_carb_optionkits_3.php Bottom end was fully checked over when engine was built by local motorsport mechanic.

Also unfitted/unused Geartronics Easyshift ECU flatshifter - £250 Please PM me if interested in both or either, ideally would like to sell together. Thanks.

    Advice needed...

    Hi All, I'm after some help with a couple of issues I currently have. The car I've got has been through an engine rebuild, from 101bhp to 146bhp so really pleased with that. Although the car seems to using a huge amount of fuel. Engine is a 2 litre Pinto, bike carbs, Kent cam and 4 into one Westfield manifold with Wunoff silencer. What sort of fuel consumption should I expect? I'm just trying to understadn what sort of range i should get from one tank. The car is a 1990 narrow. It has been set up locally, however is it worth taking to Bogg Brothers for a second opinion, as there is carbon deposit on the exhaust and it still smells a bit "fuelly". The previous owner in his infinite wisdom decided to slap some 17 inch wheels on, not surprisingly they are rubbing on the wing brackets and stopping full lock being achieved. So i want to put some more appropriate wheels on. Is it best to go for 15s for road use and is there an optimal width? Can some one tell me how to work out the appropriate offset. Its an old narrow with what i assume are Cortina hubs some presume its 4 x 108. I recently rebuilt the braking system. Reconditioned master cylinder, new braided hoses and I rebuilt the calipers. I flushed the brakes and got them working ok. However there was a small leak on the rear hoses. So i replaced the some washers with rubber ones to allow the lines to be cinched up more. Refilled the system and now i cannot get clear brake fluid out of the rears. Comes out quite dark. Any ideas? The rubber washers aren't in contact with the fluid. The brakes also feel more spongy than before. Finally it looks like the gearbox is leaking but it's difficult to see where from. I know the common area is the rear seal. If i replace that it good practice to replace anything else like the speedo seal or front seal. If so, will it be easier to take the box out rather than do it all in situ. Thanks in advance. Will
  15. I have my old type 9 for sale as its being replaced by a nice HD box with a long first. It was from a 2.0 Sierra Ghia donor I used for my build that had about 60k on the clock and I've put 1500 miles on it since it was installed. Works perfectly with no odd noises or dodgy changes evident. Could maybe do with a new saddle thing to tighten the lever up, but that's all. The ratios are std and it has a mechanical speedo drive. There seems to be a few on eBay with no history for £300 and last one I was watching sold for £230 ish, so I reckon £200 is a fair price for a known good one. They do seem to be getting dearer! This is for the box only as I need the bellhousing and gear lever for my new one.

    Which MT75 Gearbox?

    Good, Afternoon, After a run out to North Wales last weekend with the lads my Westfield gearbox decided to self combust - luckily only a few miles from home. After a couple of hours this morning, with special thanks to 1313 & Steve Farrimond, we removed the engine and gearbox. My question is, which gearbox do I have, and is there a 'best' MT75 to have i.e. which ratios? The car is a 2.0 Zetec mated to a 3.62 Diff. Heres a few identifiers... Cheers Jocker
