This ribcase transmission comes with a modified front cover and an upgraded seal.

NOTE: If exchanging smoothcase to a ribcase, the shift lever is different.  You will need a ribcase shift lever part number: U-22G1397.
(Remember: it runs straight SAE 30 weight motor oil for lubrication- not gear oil)


The ribcase gearbox is the strongest of boxes for the Sprite, Midget and Morris Minors application and can be one of the most dependable parts of your car. These boxes use real bearings in all the critical places (in contrast to the 'smooth case' box that uses simply bushes).

The ribcase is a direct replacement for the smooth case of old and will provide a much improved gear ratio set. The first gear is taller and thus much more comfortable and usable to drive.

And stop believing that every ribcase will pop out of second gear! We believe the reputation of the Spridget gearbox has been severely hurt by rebuilders that don't know how to do it right!

All of our gearboxes are built in house! We even disassemble those we might buy as rebuilt from the UK and FIX them right! They are Guaranteed to be good and we promise, THEY WILL NOT POP OUT OF SECOND GEAR!

These are sold with a core charge to ensure our supply of ribcases to rebuild. You might also consider our rebuilding service if you have the time. The standard service requires that you send us your gearbox (easily shipped by UPS), we do a complete inspection and provide a quote for rebuilding it.

 Returned Core must be Ribcase to qualify.

Question:
Hi , I am just enquiring about a RibCase Gearbox to fit to my Morris 1000 A Series Van. I see you sell these as an exchange ? Am i able to purchase a gearbox outright ? I have filled out the shipping quote section , but it wont give me a shipping quote to Australia ? My address in Walya Place Mandurah Western Australia post code 6210 Thanks in advance
Answer:
Hi,
We can sell you a transmission outright, but you would have to pay for the core charge as well. Returning yours would cost more than it is worth most likely. Let me work up a shipping quote and I will get b ack to you in a few days. We will also need to know if it is a LHD or RHD. if you do decide to purchase one.
thanks,

Common Ribcase transmission problems
Created: April 24, 2014
The "Ribcase" acronym for the gearbox as found as stock in most later '60's and '70's. The original design parameters were conceived around a small displacement low torque and horsepower engine and the "Smooth-case" transmission. The demands on this gearbox were well within design limits. Over the years the engines got bigger and bigger as did the weight of the cars they were installed in.
