    my e type ratrod BIVA build

    well that got you looking........... it`s a morris 8 series e . i saw this in my local scrapy and it was to good to leave ... so with some haggling i bought it (26/6/2011)













    and thats where it all started i`m hoping that i can do this justise! in the process of hunting for bits to rebuild it, i found another one for parts and when striped down i thought that if there`s enough left over a rat-rod for some fun , over time i`ve learnt that it`s a good idea to get as much as possible before you start, so you can get on without having to waste time.

    well...................... in my mind it's going to be a retro classic but on saying that it`s having a 19 turbo diesel lump out of my citroen xsara, m.g.b front and rear suspension, wire wheel`s, a striped down loom /steering out of said xsara but trying to make it look standard to the joepunter as i'm hoping to have it as my daily drive but the second one is still open to change but will be a rat with a touches of bully

    not 100% sure but with the Citroen /peugeot lumps think you can turn them around and put them on a LDV 200 van gear box or similar, after all the peugeot 405 was front wheel drive and the same engine was turned around 90 deg and put in the LDV 200

    graham your right the (ldv) pilot gearbox will fit, it`s an lt77 box but with slightly lower gear ratio so got an ldv bell housing and as this was the gearbox for most B.L 5 speed car`s in the 80's.I picKed up a TR7 box cheap and now all bolted together fine, but i've now just got to workout the clutch as there`s about 5 different one`s fitted to them
