James paton commented on James paton's blog post legerra gearbox
"hi guys i thought it was the 8.5 as thats what was already in the car , but since it uses the 7.5inch  23 spline that suits me even better as i have a full new clutch in the shed (result ):)  i have the prop shaft that came with the box…"

"I looked into doing this conversion but I could not make the gain worth the cost with the engine choice available at that time"

"Prop end needs changing as well unless you want a broken RX8 box , plus its easier to change the peddle box than use a cable clutch"

"190mm is 7.5 inch. What gave you the impression it needed to be 8.5 inch.?"

Adrian Southgate commented on James paton's blog post legerra gearbox
"Good call Daryl. The 1600 Cortina estate used a 23 spline 190mm friction plate. Part number is for a National clutch CK9563. If I get one it will be £85 + postage (3 piece, not sure if you can use the release bearing) All the other…"

"Given a bit of time I can track down the parts. Checking clutch sizes is easier on the computer (and a wee bit cheaper) There is no clutch in the car at present (Dave had the same issue I think.) but the engine / adapter / box are bolted together."

"hi adrian it is a hydraulic clutch but it can be modded to stay as per the old cable system this is the route im taking im not sure about the mazda clutch though that is something i had not considered   "

"And... it looks like an external hydraulic actuator on the clutch.. but i'll check tomorrow."

Adrian Southgate commented on James paton's blog post legerra gearbox
"I'll see what I can get. Its in an S2 so there is more space around it underneath and around the bellhousing. To be honest it looks a fair fit in the hole the crossflow box used to fill. Will the mazda friction plate fit inside the pinto clutch…"
