156 v6 gearboxes

hi all
picked up another v6 in the week, originally as a donor car for the TS. got him home and he really is far too good to break - years MoT, bit of tax, belts done 9k back, full dealer history, etc. no knocking suspension and not even got the airbag light on.

erm, it also looks a whole lot better than my own daily !!

nasty drivetrain noise though, sounds like an old mini with straight cut gears.

i'm thinking worst case would be a replacement box - i can find many v6 5 speeds at good prices but no 6 speeds.

probably a stupid question but can the 5 sp be retrofitted ? logic tells me yes but i'm not known for being that logical. also, any reason why i couldn't use a 166 box ( i have seen a couple of those for sale)?

regards, paul

There's a 6 speed on ebay at the moment for £100 from a 2.5 156.
