Hi Andy,

Welcome to the forum.

Good luck in your hunt. But cone synchro parts can be very hard to come by. Unfortunately 1st's are about the hardest bits of all. Someone may be able to help, but TBH I think it may be worth you considering swapping to a slightly later box with baulk rings.

I appreciate that this isn't original, but it will work & won't wear out too quickly.

Hi Andy,

Welcome to the forum.

I have a NOS 1st gear hub assembly for a cone box, along with a NOS input shaft and possibly a laygear and a reverse gear. All unboxed but are original NOS parts. :)

Many people here will, I'm sure, suggest you convert to a baulk ring box though ;)
