Yeah a minute after I posted I got a call from the shop doing the trans, tcase swap and he is getting a gear from ashcroft to be picked up by a local friend on vacation.
Red, that's what we were thinking. My guess is rebuilt box? Getting the correct later gear.

no plate fitted like that. I have a 1.4 that is original to a 1990 car and a 1.2 for this one, a disco., my guess is no crossdrilled gear, and this new one that should have had it but did not. Only add on piece I have seen is an external pipe that someone ran an oil pump to the input shaft to get around swapping the gear.
