  • WANTED: MkI Cooper laygear

    Ok, that was too easy, coming up with a set of 998 connecting rods.

    Here's a real test. To get Rowland's gearbox back together (and I'd really like to retain the original gearbox) I need a:

    MkI Cooper laygear, part number 22G204. New or used. Haven't been available for years.

    If that doesn't work I'll be looking for a good used MkI or II Cooper or Cooper S gearbox. Price? Please be gentle.

    thank you,
    Ed

      There should be a number stamped into it. Between the third and fourth gears. Thanks James.

          Now that's a good question. I don't know the answer. Maybe a bearing change or the shape of the gears? To complicate matters, I hear that the part numbers were not always put on laygears. Thanks again for checking, James.

          Who knew there were so many laygears?

                Make sure you check the tooth count and whether A or B gears on that laygear.
                The more I know about Minis, the more I know I don't know about Minis.
