To clarify you would have to take the top cover off and from and replace it from there as well.

Thanks for that, this sounds promising! I have this exploded view, are we talking about part 10?

Ok that was the pic I wanted to load, yes part 10.
Used to have the same issue when banger racing, had loads of the boxes apart to make one good one.

Thanks for that, sounds really promising :D . I plan to take it out sometime next week (away at the British GP this weekend). One last silly question.. (showing my ignorance here!) how do you uncouple the propshaft/universal joint from the end of the gearbox? I've had a quick look and its not obvious to me.. never done it before.

That is also what I was thinking something on the linkage inside the box. But haven’t had a type 9 apart myself so couldn’t tell without looking at it
