Kirk-She'll need a 1275 rear engine plate, the 948 flywheel should be
redrilled for a 1275 clutch cover, and possibly a pilot bearing. Gerard has it
spelled out in his website's tech section
(http://gerardsgarage.com/Garage/Tech/TO_Bearings/tobearings.htm).I did this
with my MKII and used the 948 slave cylinder and a roller TO bearing that I
got from Winner's Circle (NLA) along with a custom aluminum flywheel cut to
stage 1 948 dimensions and drilled to 1275 pattern. It all works well
together.Is there something wrong with your sister's trans? you didn't state
that, just if it was possible.

[Spridgets] Parts NeededI am trying to help my sister who lives on a ranch
outside of Chico Ca. Afew years ago she fell in love with a Bugeye, stock in
nice condition veryoriginal with the 948 and smooth case.A mechanic she used
and trusted in her area, a guy who loved to work on ourcars has passed away.
So she is now a bit concerned about finding anhonest mechanic.I told her that
most mechanics are not oriented to our cars, but with theright parts, and the
simple nature of working on a Sprite, a good mechanicwould be able to take
care of it for her.So I am trying to find a rib case for her and an original
throwout bearing.I am running an original TB and it is holding up fine . . but
the one Ibought via Moss a few years ago broke apart like hard cheese after
about500 miles.  I am going to check eBay before I send her my last original
TBthat I have been keeping.So two questions:Does anyone have a source on a
solid rib case and also, there is an adaptorplate she will need to attach the
rib case to a 948?Thank you so much!Kirk
