Type 9 input shaft lengths

Am I right in thinking V6 and diesel variants of the type 9 have the same long input shafts, and the 4 cyl petrol boxes have the short shaft??

Basically YES
Diesel variant has the long input shaft with the short cover that the release bearing slides on.

There are variations in the front gear too
The “short” (6.9”) input shaft for the 4 cylinder engines has 18 teeth with a short cover.
The “long” (8.1”) input shaft for the V6 engines with a long input cover has 18 teeth for the 2.3 or 19 for the 2.8/2.9.
The diesel gearbox has a “long” (8.1”) shaft with 18 teeth (as the 2.3 V6) but a “short” cover.
There is also a special “transit” length shaft used by Caterham with the K series.
