hello everyone! i purchase a engine from an Swedish inport 1970 austin 1300gt to install on my 1980 998 Austin mini. so the remote gear case was missing from the engine. i bought one with sandwich plate but when i shift to first gear the gear is wobbly but only on first gear. my mechanic told me that i have the wrong remote gear on it. so he said that 22a250 remote gear is the right one, but I've been looking online and the screw holes are from the bottom into the case, while the other one is bolted through the sandwich plate. does anyone come across with this problem? also when i release the clutch slowly i feel a small vibration. i don't know if is anything to do with it. many thanks

yep you have a ADO16 gearbox and shifter they can be used in the Mini but you need to make sure the engine is very well retained. the Mini version of box and remote does not use the sandwich plate.

You have the correct remote for the diff casing - you can’t mix and match.
Although the 1300GT ‘box and remote weren’t the original fitment to a Mini, they work fine other than needing some inventiveness for the rear mount on the remote.
Your problem is elsewhere and your mechanic is sending you up a blind alley.

thanks for the reply. i was wondering the problem come from were the gears are selected on the radiator side. i may manage to get there with out removing the engine by removing the radiator and engine mounting and accessing were the speedo cable goes. thanks

Yes you have a ADO gearbox and a mini remote.

 

Best solution may be to add the rubber sandwich plate and get an ADO remote change.

As stated, think about an additional engine steady - but in reality, you are no worse off than you would be with a rod change type stability wise.

Sorry, is the second photo what you have installed, or at you just showing us what the Mini remote looks like when out against the ADO16 ‘box?

If the remote bolts through the sandwich plate into the remote then you have the correct remote for that diff casing. The one your mechanic mentioned is the Cooper(s)/Mk3 type which uses a different diff casing.
Have a look at the knuckles on the external part of the gear linkage (on top of the diff case)for misadjustement or excessive wear.

but that aint right for your box and i dont think your box has enough material to drill and tap.

 

just use the correct parts together. then make sure the linkage on-top of the diff housing is assembled correctly and tight also check that you have all the parts in the gearstick area. it should all work fine but as said before an extra engine stabiliser or 2 would not be a bad idea.

hi mate. i already checked all the linkage but i don't see anything wrong with it. looks like is coming from inside of the gear box. i will have to open to see if anything wrong. the engine has already 3 engine stabiliser 2 on the bottom and one on the top. many thanks for your help

I've been looking around and all linkage is fine. i shift into first and move the gear knob around and the linkage moves as well. so im suspecting the problem is from inside. there is a little play were the linkage enters the gearbox but i don't see any bushes to replace. many thanks
