Would this work as well with the Puma MT82 6 speed?

No, there is a world of difference between the two. Perhaps someone can try that down the road. Our focus is to develop what that works in the pre tdi 80's vintage trucks which are the ones in need of repower, ie keep the lt77 floors and tunnel etc.

There is considerable negative feedback on the Mt82's, and the modifications to fit it into and early truck dont seem prudent, so not realy giving it any consideration as a retrofit gearbox.

If you need a tester, let me know. I'm ready to buy. I've gotten an adapter plate template made, but have fizzled on getting the flywheel work done. I was about to drop $600 on a block of aluminum to cut the final plate but this is a better overall solution.

Hope is that this will be the ultimate and an affordable solution (sub $1k) and use all rover clutch components. Given the larger size of the cummins bolt patern and the size of the flywheel we should be able to simply drill and tap the cummins flywheel for use of the larger off the shelf rover v8 clutch components for greater surface contact/hold. Hope to have a casting in hand early January. Should be the silver bullet for those wanting to do their own conversion.
