I also have a 6t B with a 3 synchro and a 78B with a 4synchro with overdrive.

To convert you would have to replace the backing plate, starter, flywheel and
transmission.  You also would have to modify the tunnel to fit the 4 synchro.

The three synchro is very easy to rebuild.  It is essentially the same trans
as in the MGA.  A friend of mine can remove his MGA engine and trans, rebuild
the trans and install it in less than 4 hours.

True, the earlier 3 synchros had a smaller diameter layshaft, but it can be
converted if desired...Me, I'd keep the 3 synchro.
