Searching for a good or “repairable” Moss or syncro gearbox for a series one E-type. Thanks, JS
Call me 706-816-1608
2+2 or short wheelbase?
Although I am not Jeff, it is a SWB coupe. Nice car, bad noise in first gear only.
Yep, I’ve decided to have the original gearbox gone through one more time, but still may need an option for a sync box or parts for a Moss. thanks, JS
@angelw may be your source.
While looking for parts for myself, came across this ad on craigslist L.A. A rebuilt moss 4 spd. It is from a 1970 e type v12. I may be wrong, but with the proper bell housing, should bolt right into your series 1. Would this be the same tranny used throughout the years?
I know that it has been available for the last 2-3 months. I’m sure the initial asking price was around
Also, I’m sure that Art Dickonson ( founding member ), of Pacific Jaguar Enthusiasts Group (Canada)
has, or had a rebuilt moss 4spd for sale.
Hope this helps.
That is not a Moss box and there’s no such thing as a 1970 production V12. If the basic facts are unclear would you trust the workmanship?
Just a case of wrong terminology Peter, it’s obviously a V12 box, the add does state 1970 +.
No good for a SWB of course !
Well ‘Moss’ is a very specific box with completely different internals and a different gesr change pattern and bell housing compatibility. Lots of people specifically replace them with 4-synchro boxes to get rid of the Moss. Lots of people couldn’t tell by sight.
Yep, thanks Vic, as others have pointed out, the craigslist as is for a “normal” syncro gearbox…I’ll reach out to Art regarding a Moss box.,thanks, JS
