Short Type 9 Bell-housing???

Have heard rumour that these exist. Really?? Does anyone know more detail about such a shorter bell-housing? If so, please let me know where I can get one.

TIA, Dick.

Why do you need a short bellhousing?
What engine?
What type 9, there are several input shafts but mostly the V6 long and inline short

1: To enable me to shift engine + g/box back by 28mm. (Camshaft housing/cover interferes with rear edge of nosecone).

2: Engine - Zetec silvertop 1.6.

Have been advised (on another forum) to try using the shorter bell-housing. In my reply, I observed that I would have to rebuild the gearbox, with a shorter input shaft.

Would it not be easier to cut a notch out of the rear edge of the nose cone?

+ if the engine is fouling the rear edge of the nose cone is it not fouling the bonnet as well?

Can you fit shorter engine mounts to lower the engine in the chassis?
