Lotus 5 Speed Gearbox for sale - NOW SOLD

PostPost by: Matt Elan » Tue Mar 13, 2018 4:59 pm

I've got a Lotus five speed gearbox from an Elite/Eclat which, as you know is the the same central cast alloy box as the Elan / Plus 2 unit but with different bell housing and end casing. I've had it for several years intending to fit it into my Plus 2 but its not going to happen, so its up for sale - £250 and the buyer collects - I'm in Fleet, Hants (postcode GU51 3GY). PM me if you are interested.

I think that maybe the main shaft in the box is different too.

Re there may be a different main shaft. There have been some threads on here which imply that you just need a bell housing and rear housing to fit it into an Elan - does anyone know for sure? I've just gone through my Elite/Eclat parts list to find that half of the 5 speed gearbox part is missing so I can't verify if the internals are all 'A50' prefixed - (none Elan parts are prefixed 'A75')
