Hi Jorge,

 

Yes, you got it! The idea is to fit a 4 speed gearbox from the eclat 520.

 

This one is to be an HSCC 70's roadsports track car, and the overdriven 5th gear isn't needed on the track as I won't have enough power to go faster than max revs in 4th. The 4 speed ford box is also stronger than the lotus 5 speed from  the eclat 521-523 models.
