    I have just started on a 53 Prefect with 105e brakes, Spitfire 1500 engine etc. You are welcome to exchange of information and ideas when you are ready to get started. I am learning too. Dave

    With the 105 brakes can you use the Pop spindles? Also as mentioned by someone else that a triumph engine is better... Can anybody give me the pro's of the Triumph over the Ford crossflow? Is it purely less work to put in?

    Another question. Ive read a few threads on this BIVA test thingybob.

    From what ive read,upgrading to crossflow with 105 e braking would not lead me down the BIVA test route would it? I assume the chassis wouldnt require 'cutting or modifying' and as a Pop is not a monocoque any cuttibg to the shell is disregarded anyway?

    You can fit a Ford engine and box but you must fit it high to avoid needing to cut the chassis ( and straight into BIVA territory ) . This is why the Triumph lump is suggested as it's physically small as is the gearbox . As the Pop is chassied you can cut the floor and bulkhead with no problems, likewise even a roofchop doesn't threaten the identity as it all lies in the chassis.

    Yes the Pop spindles take the 105e bearings but you will need a spacer behind the inner bearing 36.5mm OD x about 9.5mm width for the seal. If you use Anglia Super/1200 brakes they are wider shoes. If you use the Spitfire engine it comes with twin SUs. Later box is all synchro, earlier box is not synchro on first. I am just at the point of shoehorning the unit into my Prefect and some of the bulhead will go but not much. Will need a new gearbox cover inside but that is fairly straightforward. It is still sitting a little higher than I would like as it needs to clear the steering. Also got to consider the additional weight of the Triumph lump and get the front spring up-rated. Again, I am in the midst of that too. Good luck, Dave
