You do indeed need the Type 1 f28 mount for your shell type!

This is what it looks like:



You will also need an F28 2wd conv kit:



You will be ok to reuse the F20 speedo from your old box, they are easily removed.

If you need there is a downloadable instruction sheet on my website which explains were needs drilling and tapping on the f28 casing e.t.c.

F28 2wd conversion kit instructions

If you need any of the above give us a shout.
