Ford Sierra Type 9 gearbox 2.98 ratio 1st gear conversion kit new style
New style 2.98 ratio 1st gear conversion kit for standard 1.6 and 2.0 Sierra Type 9 gearboxes.
This set has a solid 1st gear as part of the new laycluster gear, not the cut and splined type made from a secondhand gear. The 1st gear itself is also changed from the original Ford type.
Changing to this 2.98 ratio will a "taller" ratio on 1st gear and give lower revs than the original 3.6 ratio first gear fitted to the standard Type 9 Ford transmission.
You can interchange this set with any standard 18 tooth long, short or medium length input shaft, but not the 2.8 19 tooth shaft from the Cologne V6 engine.
Use your own standard 2nd, 3rd and 4th gears. This version also uses the standard laygear needle roller setup.
Heavy duty front bearing version also available.
