If you really want a 63 over a 60 I will trade you, I will likely feel guilty for a while, but I will survive.
For some reason your comment didn't show up before. According to banner the 63 is stronger and quieter, plus it doesn't require modifications to the trans mount. I may take you up on the trade, I'll have to check and see if the seals I ordered will fit a 63. I got a couple things to prep for install
I don't want to take advantage of you, so I want you to understand that the MG guys don't want the 63A because it is big and heavy while they want the 60 series because it is small and lighter than other transmissions, I belong to the MGE forum and there is a thread about this subject, they are using some small Ford transmission for the Moss kits now as the 60 series transmissions are hard to find and very expensive now as are the MG overdrive transmissions.
The 63 series 5 speed is a good transmission for a small car, it is a terrible transmission for a Datsun truck with an L front case on it, it worked in the 200SX car behind the L20b as it is a light car also.
What I have here is a package, I have everything from the flywheel(inc bolts) to the driveline going to the rearend, I bought it all from some guy in the Puget Sound area.
