Most people only fit them to pass the IVA,then remove them.

In all honesty they are a waste of time,they will only move the car on flat,or slight inclines.

Over 4 years of running my BEC the couole of times I needed a reverse,meeting tractors down lanes etc,I couldn't use it as the road was not flat!
So still had to get out and push it

Ah that's a pain,will they check it works?

It's not a easy fitment if your chassis doesn't have the mounting points welded on already.

Getting a flange made is probably the easiest part tbh!

Getting a motor mounted to the chassis is the hardest job,moving fuel/brake pipes etc to weld on brackets.

Westgarage used to do a kit that fitted on the engine for FE/RWD bike engine setups.
May be worth an email? https://chaindrivediff.co.uk/product-category/other-products/electric-reverse-units/
