Thanks everyone for the photos and links they were very helpful in helping me understand the gearbox arrangement in my car. When I started I assumed the MT75 solution offered by most suppliers was for once a quick and cheap upgrade. Must drink less.

Cheers

David

Just a note: Thanks Cain for the MT75 link.
David; I fitted the Librands sports shift for the Zetec 4/4 (MT75)last year and am very happy I did so.

Hi Dave

My MT75 does not have Sliding sleeve for reverse and Librands Sport Gear shift will defiantly not fit.

I take it your MT75 does have a sliding sleeve reverse?

Hi Cain,

Yes my gear lever does have a sliding sleeve to select reverse. However after Christmas I intend to get under the car and have a good look at the box and linkages to check condition and type.

This whole process has intrigued me over what I thought was a standard component - the MT75 box. I assumed with minor variations all such coded gearboxes were the same. No - there are 2 and 4 wheel drive versions, different gear ratios depending on the car, different gear lever arrangements and from your comment even different reverse selection methods. I am pleased to say though that I have learned a great deal.

Thanks again for your advice.


David

David,
The key to this "quick shift" issue may well be in what engine is fitted. The Zetec engine cars could use a Sierra MT75 box (with it's gear shift linkage and integarel bell housing). Where as the Duratec engined cars use the "after market" (see my earlier post) gearbox because of the need to use a different bell housing. The link posted by Cain shows a box with a removable BH and perhaps a Morgan gear linkage.
A Zetec car could therefore use a Sierra quick shift kit.
My Duratec car does not have the slider for reverse lockout.
Cheers
John

Our MT75 has remote the gearshift but it is Morgan only.

Librands do not Manufacture a quick dermot for the MT75.

The Ebay links for Cosworth will not fit the Morgan MT75 Gearbox variant.



Hi Caine, yes my 2000 Zetec silvertop with the MT75 does have the sliding sleeve for reverse.

The original gear shift was exactly the same as the schematic in your attached super7heaven MT75 repair manual under: Gear Shift.

David,

I was interested in this thread as I am keen to stop wrapping my knuckles with every gear change! Can anyone categorically say what gearbox is attached to my 1994 Morgan 4/4 which has a 1.8 Zetec engine fitted and a gear stick with a reverse detent sleeve fitted. Reading this thread I am thinking it is a Ford MT75 box and so the Librands short leaver shifter will be the answer? I am open to any other thoughts and opinions if somebody is able to guide me please.....
