Will a diesel gearbox fit a petrol engine?


Recommended Posts

No, You can't pair diesel gearbox to petrol engine.

Diesel gearbox: 333761.png

Bolts position doesn't match. Clutch housing (to engine block) have also bolts lot different places between diesel and petrol.

And then there is problem with gear ratio etc..

Even though the OP has got the answers, I notice he has a T27 from his profile. Since all manual T27's regardless of fuel type have 6 speed, I would only assume it is difficult to source a replacement petrol version, since there are more diesel gearboxes available! Unless the housing is destroyed, it would better to find a gearbox specialist to replace any damaged/worn internals. Otherwise wait until a suitable matching second hand gearbox becomes available.
