Has anyone got access to a car fitted with a Lotus twin cam and a VW cased Hewland box?

I'm looking for the length from the drive shaft centre to the forward most point of the engine.

does this set up use the same 55mm adaptor plate as a Formula Ford?

many thanks!

I can take some measurements off my Lotus 23. Why not PM me with a bit more information so I can get it right the first time.

Sorry to butt in Mistron.

You couldn't measure the width of the gearbox from driveshaft flange to driveshaft flange as well while you're there?

More thanks!
