Don't think it's sold just yet despite what the last post says in that thread but the guy selling has also got a very lightly used JC5 for sale as well

Won't let me access it, have to be a member apparently. I was going to put my spare R19TD JC5 in my 9 Turbo, but if there's a new JB3 about I might consider it. Whats he asking for it do you know? Any contact details? (sorry to be a pain)

Nice to see a top car getting the love it deserves. Not many of these left now, future classic.

WOO ive not logged in here for a while... whats with all the gearbox pictures ??

To DaveL485 I could not praise Finishline enough for the fantastic job they have done with the bodywork. Its really good to know that there are still people with a passion for there work. Give them a call (ask for Chris Bray)

While we seem to be on the subject of gearboxes here is a link to the one i have spare in the garage

Was just linking to a JB3 that I knew was for sale.

How much do you want for that box? I want a JB3 to nick the diff & final drive to fit them to my williams box, will make it go faster driving

Don't ask me what it's worth as I'm incredibly tight & wont pay more than £20 for it laugh

The final drive of the JB3 will let you have a higher top speed and fitting it to a JC5 will give the benefit of the higher top speed without the disadvantage of the weaker JB3 box..........well that's what I've been told by a few different people, plus my final drive/diff has st itself so I want to experiment a bit
