    Default BA10/5 Into a 505 wagon

    Hi All,

    I am looking to fit a BA10/5 into my 505 SR wagon as the 4 speed is driving me a little crazy at highway speeds. I know a BA7/5 will fit in but will a BA10 ? and if so whats involved.

    The reason I ask for a 10/5 is that I can get one fairly easily but not a 7/5!

    Ben

    as far as i know the reason the 10 won't fit in the wagon is something to do with the rear engine mount

    really though a 10 is a waste on a 4 pot as the 4 pot spins so nicely you want a smooth nicefeeling box to go with it and 10's are not that wher eas the 7's are

    10's are designed for the V6 and the 7's are the 4 pot box's
    they go hand in hand in my opinion
    3 x '78 604 SL

    1 x 2018 3008

    1 x 2000 Citroen XM,

    1 x '98 306 GTi6 sadly sold

    1 x secret project

    1 x '98 406 STDT troop carrier and i don't care if it stinks, i don't sniff it's arse Death by wank tank

    1 x '99 406SV 5spd wagon, time to burn more fuel

    1 x 1994 605 SV3.0

    It can be done... but not easily...

    Pitch the original gearbox mount and make up a new one styled after the mount used for the 4-speed automatic wagon installation. This mount won't fit, but could probably be modified to do so, though I would say it would be fairly easy to design one similar to do the job right.

    Then you need (probably...) to machine out the counterbore in the rear housing to locate the torque tube mounting swivel thing in the back of the box. It has a slightly larger spigot than the 'link tube' of the sedans.

    And there will be some amendments required to the finished shape of your tunnel to clear the linkages etc...
