Swift reply from Mike Papworth....unfortunately he is very busy & booked up just now; & can also only offer a dearer, 4-synchro, upgrade currently. Too much for my budget so i'll give Klassik Transmissions the job & report back on how it goes!
Hi, Mike Papworth did my TR box thru a third party. Check what he actually replaces, what he replaces, what he guarantees & for how long.
The other options are expensive and could be from same supplier. I will not be using M.P. in the future. When the noise in neutral and first increases from the rumble that has been present for the last two years, I will decide what to do. Maybe six speed! .

I've got a spare 3 syncro box from a Mk3 spit available which came as a job lot with a very rotten car, but all the mechanicals had been overhauled by an engineer. It's still bubble wrapped and available from Rotherham area. No guarantees (as I've never used it) but it looks and feels ok. PM me if you want it.
Pete L - that Fitchets price is out of my budget I'm afraid!
My gearbox seems very rattly...I get a constant rattle whilst driving but very noticeable when I come off the throttle whilst in gear. Sounds rather as if the handbrake cable is rattling on the propshaft but I've the had car up on a lift & no rattles anywhere! The gear change is very sloppy & the "gate" seems very loose.
I have a spare untested Spitfire 1300 gearbox which I was thinking to send off for a recon........
