FORD TYPE 9 GEARBOX REBUILDS


  Ford gearboxes

The Ford Type 9 5-speed gearbox is a Type E 4-speed gearbox with a 5th gear added in a spacer placer plate bteween the casing and the tailhousing.

There are two versions of this gearbox, those with a short input shaft 17.52mm (6.9ins) from gearcase face to the end of the input shaft and were fitted to the Sierra 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0 up to the end of 1988 and also the Capri 1.6 and 2.0 from early 1983. Most of these gearboxes had detachable bellhousings but some later ones had integral bellhousings.

The other version of the gearbox had a longer input shaft 20.52mm (8.1ins) and were fitted to the Sierra 2.3, XR4, Capri 2.8, Granada 2.3 and 2.8, also some vans and diesel cars.

The gearbox has become a popular fit to many classic and kit cars because it has an overdrive 5th gear allowing lower RPM for motorway use. An example of this, in a Ford Escort RS2000 with standard axle ratio, wheels and tyres, the RPM at 70mph drops from 3,760 to 3,070.


REBUILD PROCESS

The gearbox is completely stripped, all parts cleaned and examined. The rebuild consists of fitting the following new (not good used) normal wear parts - front and rear bearings, main shaft front bearing, layshaft, layshaft needle rollers, synchromesh baulk rings, tailhousing bush, front and rear seals, gaskets.

If other parts are found to be in need of replacement, the customer will be contacted before proceeding.

We can either rebuild a customer's gearbox, or supply a rebuilt gearbox with a surcharge returnable on receiving a gearbox in a condition suitable for rebuilding, or supply a rebuilt gearbox outright.

To enable customers to easily send us their gearbox for rebuild we can supply a purpose made crate for the gearbox to fit into. We can arrange collection if required.
