I have a new design angle drive gearbox almost ready for testing. It is a modular bevel angular gearbox that is fitted to the car gearbox and not the speedo as my other gearboxes. I will be able to do them with Ford inputs and outputs or XPAG inputs and outputs or a combination.I have attached a a photo of the prototype with the lid removed. It's going in my mate's Midget on Friday.
It runs like a Swiss watch!
The bevel gears run in roller bearings seated in bearing caps and the bevel stage is always the same regardless of the input or output configuration.
I will next build the version with the integrated speedo corrector stage. It will be slightly larger but only by 10mm.
The advantage is that it comes out of the gearbox at 90° parallel to the gearbox and has no nasty bend in the cable. With a FORD input and an XPAG output you can still use the original cable.

The bevel does or does not change the direction of rotation depending on which end of the long shaft you connect to.
I have connected the input and output on the wrong side!
That will give me something to do tomorrow.

I corrected the input and output configuration this afternoon-now it is correct.
I have also made a 3D drawing of the housing and my mate has ordered a 3D printer so we are going to see what the housing turns out like.

Hi Declan,
great part, that is what I looking for - angle drive includung a correction box for my TC with a FORD T9 gearbox.
But I am in doubt that will fit - If you fit the propshaft tunnel modified for th Ford gerbox and the stifning iron there
is no room for your angle drive - I think.
Attached a picture you can spot the how it is fitted.
cheers Carl

Carl,
I agree it looks very tight there on the TC. Can you take a closer photo? There seems to be more room on the TD but I will have to crawl under there and actually check as it would be a good solution if it would fit and I have several enquiries already. We tried fitting it on a Midget on Friday but without a car lift and the Midget being so there was no chance so we will have to wait.
Regards
Declan
