Mx 5 advice

Hi I am currently fitting a mx5 1800nb engine and box into my mk, I am then using a ford diff so I have 2 questions really
1, is there an adapter plate to take the mc prop to ford diff
2, shortened sump, does anyone have one as I can and the engine to sit as low as possible

Thanks

I believe that it is normally advised to have a propshaft made for your application.
I think the cost is normally 200 ish

I had an MX5 prop from my donor so sent it to (I think) Bailey Morris who cut it down, installed a sierra coupling and balanced it before returning, cost was 115. The important dimension for them is the distance from the very rear of the gearbox to the front face of the sierra diff flange, 650mm on mine if I remember correctly
