Nope. If your late 1500 has the high starter location, it should be the
same gearbox as used in the 1600's. Just check to be sure it has the
4-bolt flange on the output shaft, and the driveshaft with the sliding
spline just behind the front u-joint. If your existing setup has the
sliding spline in the rear end of the gearbox, and the one-piece
driveshaft, you will also need to procure the 2-piece driveshaft to go with
the 1600 gearbox.
