      Just replaced the top reverse gearbox mounts with the latest versions Alan offers, the diameter of the rubber is greater than the originals I had fitted, the stability of the reverse box is greatly improved, a worthwhile modification even though not the easiest job.

        Very substantial against the original. Do they go onto the existing stud or are they a bonded unit, stud and rubber?
        Asking to see how difficult they are to fit. As you point out things are a bit tight around the Nova box and better if you don’t have to take it out to make this mod!
        Thanks

          Just remove old and replace with new, other than the overall diameter they are a direct replacement.

              Can you do it without taking the box out?

                It can be done without fully removing the box; however, you do have to remove the lower fixings to give enough room to get the old mounts out of the box and pop in the new, but no need the remove the drive shafts. I also loosened of the handbrake assembly to give me more room to manoeuvre the box, I think it was more the cable in the way rather than the handbrake lever itself.
