Can they be identified visually? I know that some were dog-leg first, whilst I think others were not.
Any help appreciated..

They weren't works boxes and there was nothing really special about the spares.
End of story really. Wish it would've turned out more positively!

What is the shift pattern on your various option boxes?
Have heard various, depending on wether it was a proper factory box, or, some XXX company gearbox modifier, ie Albin/Holinger/etc
First to left then either up or down,,, or first to far right then up,??
Gears 2-3-4-5 always in the H pattern
I have some internal pics of the Holinger version that is in the Y, bit odd, it is full synchro on first, which is where fith would normally be, ( reverse is same position) but it has dog engagement on 2.3.4&5, in place of synchros, tooth count is odd too, it's a combo of Opt2 and Opt 1, George stipulated to Holinger, exactly what he wanted!

My understanding the only difference between the works ones were extra little holes and slot's in the housing to get a screw driver in there if it jam's in gear.
Mazda rotary C/R box's were like yours Jase, 1st where 5th normally is then 2nd to 5th in the 'H'..but you probably knew that!! I cant remember the brand.
Lampy look into a 200sx etc etc etc 6 speed, if you get the right one they have a 1-1 5th, but unless it's the Nismo one the rest of the ratio's aren't spot on for a 4 cyl.

internals are holinger dog engagement. It has a 1:1 5th and was made from an original option 1 box I was told. Now it is the selectors that are special as Rev and 1st are in the back of the box where rev and 5th normally are.
I would love that H of 2 3 4 and 5 for a track car as I got used to driving with that pattern when I owned my Datsun 710 aka 160Jsss mk1 which had a dog leg 5 speed standard.
