Hi there, new to the forum.

Currently have an 80 inch trialler im doing up- at the moment it has a 3.5 on SU carbs coupled to a series 2 gearbox. Recently I obtained a 3.9 EFI classic with autobox, question is will the engine and gearbox fit into the trialler? Will the rear prop be a problem with the longer autobox?

Any help much appreciated. Biggin.

Hi welcome.

Cant answer the auto box question, but as an owner of a Series 1 V8 why change to auto?

If you want to trial it surely you want to stay with a manual and possibly a Series 1 transfer box?

If Ashtrans is around he will give you all the auto box information you can handle and some more!

The autobox is about 6 inches longer if that helps you decide.

If its a trialer I wouldn't see a problem with wide angle yokes. You'll probably go through UJ's more frequently but at least you won't be doing hundreds of road miles.
