    Join the queue. Especially as I saw a hydraulique conversion kit for a 5sp D box is now available ex Holland. Very clever use of electric servos enables the conversion to use the reverse gear position for 5 gear.

    A person placed an ad on the car club forum a few days ago selling some DS21 stuff, including a five speed gearbox. Suggest you get in touch.

    But hopefully that means it went to someone who will use it.

    BTW - be careful about which 5sp box you get. I may be telling you how to suck lemons, but some 5sp boxes are really nothing more than a 4sp box with another ratio in the middle to replace that awful gap between 2nd and 3rd. The end result is not that much different.
