Hi & welcome to the forum

I don,t know the measurements for that gearbox but what you could do is build the main frame of the chassis, trial fit your engine & gearbox & then fabricate to suit, tho keep in mind the size of the drivers footwell area/pedalbox area & the width of the seats you intend to fit.

The MT75 gearbox dimensions may give you some guidance ( there are some dimensions available on the Haynes forum in the announcements section under "amendments/guides ", this info also gives dimensions for the smaller pedalbox area...roughly 25mm narrower than the standard Roadster book guide.

HTH & good luck with your build.

For a moment I thought it was a Porn site post!!!

However the more serious reply is a good one.
Don't forget if you are building your own chassis you can change things to fit your engine and box, if you already have a fully built chassis it's realy not a problem to cut out a bit that's in the way and re weld it someware else.
My first build was controlled by my fear of changing the design I was presented with, now it's just the basics to work with and modify to my requirements.
