Pud, just asking, as I have idea about any diesel gearbox. Would the gears from the 1.9 box fit directly with the rest of the 2.5 gearbox ?
ie, with no modification ?
If you take the whole lot out and plonk them as is into 2.5 casing, yes - no mods... If you only want the 6th gear - then there will be some work to do

Here's a vid of a 2.5 (or maybe 3.0 swap) 156 ripping through the gears. 3rd before 100km/h, looks a lot of fun!

sibin99 : 3,0 v6 24v gearbox and flywheel from 156 2.5v6
3rd gear just below 140km/h on redline looks 2.5 normal

Hi!Can someone tell me how to differentiate a JTD gearbox from V6 gearbox without taking it apart?
The bellhousing is totally different. Post a photo of it and we can tell you if its JTD or V6.

I got it from a local scrap dealer. Initially he claimed it's from a V6, but later he said he doesn't know.

Yes its a V6 box, you can tell by the shape of the bell housing and also because the rear engine mount is held on with only 2 bolts, the diesel boxes have this mount bolted on with 3 bolts.
