Spridget Advice? / Parts?

Postby stevesteeb » Sat Apr 12, 2014 10:52 am

I'm going to get my street Bug-eye done this summer. 1275, mostly stock. Need advice on a 5-speed trans. - I only have 1 Sprite trans left and I really think the street-car should have the extra gear. Ideas? Suggestions? Parts?
While on that subject - my Straight-cut Close Ratio Sprite race-box is beyond repair and if I ever hope to put my race Bug-eye back together (Think Vintage!) I would certainly need a decent box. I seem to remember years ago someone did conversions to use Hewland gears in the stock case (Richmond?)... Anyone have one or any information on one? Thanks for any help offered!!! :-) steve

From a new posting on the Production board, it appears the Feller's are selling off their stuff. You might want to check out this link:
