This kit provides all the major components to convert any early Classic Mini to the "late" style axles and shift linkage:

  • Complete used Rod-change shifter assembly
  • Pair of axles for use with inner CV "Pot-Joints"
  • New inner CV Pot joints
  • Special adapter bracket to mount shifter to the early narrow 'tunnel
If you are considering a new engine, the best choice is to use the later more available Rod-change gearbox, which has a number of advantages in strength and durability. The axle output shafts use the modern 6-axis inner CV joints and a much more reliable internal shift linkge replaces the old style that had all the external knuckles.
I am changing a 92 automatic mini 1000 to a std shift 85 mini 1000 engine . Is the left axel shorter on the auto eng than the std shift mini? I took it for a test drive and the inner pot joint pulled out going around a corner
Axles are the same length between automatic and standard
