Anyone got some or all of the parts highlighted in the below images from a mk2 Uno with hydraulic clutch?

If your putting a MK2 box on your MK1 it can be converted back to cable clutch if you swap the bit the slave cylinder strikes for the one off the MK1 top change box that takes the cable (top of clutch fork - has the same splines)

You'll see the bit is still on the MK2 box for holding the end of the clutch cable cover.

Not sure about the GT box, but suspect it may as many left hand drive FIATs retained cable where only right hand drive changed to hydrallics - including late 999cc top change Unos.

If your trying to make a MK1 top change box take a hydrallic clutch IIR you'll be 1 mount point short on the gearbox casing of the 3 that the slave cylinder bracked bolts to.

I've got the fluid resivoir and first hose spare - have a look on a late MK2 999cc with top change box Wink

Hi Louie,

Not doing either of the above; considering a change to a much later 'box with cable-shift and hydraulic clutch as my original 'box is not giving me any confidence at the mo and will have to come out again soon as 1st is difficult to select Sad

Hi,

My mate smed is running a 1.4 UT box on his mk1 with a hydrolic clutch conversion. he says his only regret was not doing it sooner! Much nicer to use! also mk2 boxes have slightly longer ratios. He was always JUST changing into 3rd to hit 60mph, where as me in my 1.4 mk2 at the time could hit 65mph before 3rd. This made a massive difference in the 0-62mph times.

Lewey said all UT topshift boxes can be converted to cable. Something he stumbled across when he was completing the Tjet Uno.

Think he used the shift and cables ftom a Bravo... the 2 levers are in the same place on these later boxes aparantley.



Dunc, I sold a MK1 box to someone who fitted it to their MK2 and said a threaded hole was missing, but they worked around it.

Yes I've read through Lewey's tjet project again recently and noted/salivated over the cable change conversion. Having looked at dozens of pictures on eBay listings and eper diagrams it seems there's a progression from the twin rod Uno to one rod one cable on the Punto and Barchetta to twin cables on Multipla's, Stilo's and the like.

Early Bravo's and Marea's are rod based but later ones twin cable.

The lever that rotates the selector shaft in the gearbox to select between 1st and 2nd, 3rd and 4th, etc, changes its orientation on later C510 gearboxes, such that it exits the oppposite side to the Uno T. Not a problem I guess if the matching cable change setup from the donor gearbox is being used but it could make for interesting times if not! 1st will be where 2nd is, 3rd where 4th is, etc.

The rod-change system on my mk1 is letting the car down so I need to 'engineer' a better solution and it'll most likely mean a change to a later cable-change 'box and while I'm doing that I might as well convert the clutch to hydraulic too, hence this wanted ad. Nothing wrong with the cable clutch on my car at the moment though, it's lovely and light.
