It came from a 2300/2600 SD1. I know it's not perfect but will this box be okay for my MGB V8 Project. Using a 3.5 SD1?

Many thx
i thought the 2300 box was a 4 speed version ??

Ian im not too worried about other drivers as its only me insured in the van :)) Im not sure wether with a bike clutch lever that i would get the range of movement required .. The current master cylinder i have has 1 3/4 inches of travel .. so i was thinking of making a lever with a greater throw ?

Thankyou :D
I have a few cunning plans in mind now ...
Thinking along the lines of a lever on gearstick ( ldv one quite long so no problem with space ) conected to a cable going to master cylinder linked to servo to make it easy to move :)

Sorry to seem a bit dense on this ...
any idea how i would fit one ?
It the remote servo operated by a cable from the pedal ?
?.if so maybe i could fit a hand lever style of operation on the gear stick ...
