    Late TR7 Bellhousing

    Question from ignorance for you owners of a modification bent? Seeing as the TR7 is really only half a Stag engine, will a TR7 5 Speed bellhousing mate up to a Stag backplate or adaptor plate without modification?

    I have wondered the same thing and would be interested in an answer too. Seems like it would be easier and cheaper to locate an LT77 than an original 4sp O/D unit ?

      I dont think it will, The LT77 Gearbox i think was the same as used on SD1 rovers the bell housing was different if using v8 to a straight 6

        Yes you can see where I am going with this, TV8, TV8 backplate, TR7 5 speed bellhousing
        and TR7 LT77 5 speed gearbox.

        OR

        TV8, TR7 backplate, TR7 5 speed bellhousing and TR7 LT77 5 speed gearbox.

        I’m guessing everyone would know about it already if it was that easy.

          I met a guy that was buying up any late TR7's just for the gearbox to convert MG's to RV8 engines.. so you may have something there..

            Well I’ve just bought a TR7 5 speed bellhousing off eBay (now awaiting delivery). I already have a Stag manual gearbox backplate, so we’ll find out soon.

              Thanks for the update. Be very interested in your findings. Years ago I rebuilt a sprint engine which has same block as a TR7. The sprint had a thicker steel back plate that bolted to the block that the gearbox attached to. I think the TR7 has a similar steel plate that attaches to the bell housing. I was thinking that TR7 steel plate might attach to the TV8 block and allow a straight forward add of the TR7 ( BL LT77) gearbox. But as you say if it was that simple you'd think that it would be more popular.
