I have a friend looking for a 2nd series gearbox if someone knows of one available.
That will be a tough one.. did they try eurospares?
I found one for the guy but came with an engine.
Why does he need a complete gearbox ?
Apparently his Dino has the 1st series gearbox. Not correct for his car.
Where are you? Europe or America?
Ah.. got it.

I am in the US but the guy with the car is in Europe.

Good tip. I thought about calling them today. I think at one time Dennis McCann had nine engines and more than a few gearboxes. Maybe Tom still has them.
...so he has a 2nd series car which currently has a 1st series gearbox in it, is that 1st series gearbox working fine?
L-series and M-series gearboxes are visually almost identical, so is it the stamping on the gearbox housing that he's concerned about ?
There were some minor updates to the housings and a different cluster design but many parts are identical between L and M-series gearboxes.
For example, the bottom covers and the final drive have the same part numbers.
Externally they appear to be very similar from looking at the parts manuals for these models.
One reliability change Ferrari made for the M-series was swapping the middle drop gear thrust washers for a pair of torrington bearings which is documented in a SAT sheet (the drop gears are otherwise the same).
They might feel better getting the correct type of gearbox in the car but visually and functionally it would be the same I think.
I think this guy wants to make his car totally correct. I don't know much about the earlier gearboxes. I thought Dennis McCann told me years ago that the gears are not as wide as the E series box.
yep, I get it however it won’t have the right gearbox number. I can’t recall if the early cars had the type stamped on the housing, I know E-series did. Let me know if there’s an L-series box for sale
I just checked and the 206, 246L and 246M have the same part numbers for the gears at Superformance but the shafts etc are redesigned. So they must have the same ratios.
E-series has different part numbers for the gears and not sure on the ratios, would need to dig up the operator manuals.
I know a good L-Series box available if you are looking for one
no, I’m just a scavenger!
