Hi All,
So, it would appear I need a new gear box on my 1.9 jtd!!!
Question - does anyone know if I’m cool to use the gearbox from my old 159 2.2jts.....?
Cheers

Assuming both are 159s then they use the same gearbox...the crappy M32. Don't know if internal ratios are differing from diesel to petrol though.

Yep, they are both 159’s. Guessing as we are talking Alfa’s they’re gonna be a face ache to fit ......
Thanks for the info. Gearbox on my old was was sweet , it was the clutch that caused its demise .....

It will fit but the gearing will be completely wrong. Diesel cars have torque and need talll gearing to run at low RPM. Petrols have less torque and need to rev.

The drive ratio is usually altered by having a different sized ring gear on the differential.

It will physically fit though...
