5-speed Un1, or is it... again...

Hi again. Seems that my first posting went to cyberspace when the site had problems a few days ago. So here it comes again, with a little more background info.

I bought this from a seller from Italy about a month or so. I haven't heard from the seller for the last week and a half so I guess he has more important things in his mind...

Here's text quoted from his advertisement:

"
Condition: seller refurbished
Renault 21 turbo transaxle gearbox, 5 speed
ideal for replicas kit car, or other
bell housing for Ford V8 included and special drive shaft adaptors to convert the output shaft to standard 100mm.joints
It's possible remove these parts to use as standard conversion
Rebuilt in UK in 2014 by specialist
Very difficult to find in these conditions and to this price
I bought this gearbox for gt40 replica, but I sold and now I don't need"

OK. I received it two weeks ago and could only engage reverse and gears 3-5. Took off the rear cover and found these:






So, anybody willing to take a guess what has happened here?

Any input is welcome. I have a feeling this can turn expensive, for a cheap transaxle.

Thanks, Sami

P.S. That Ford bellhousing mentioned in the ad doesn't fit a Ford...

P.P.S. that same seller has another, more expensive UN1 in Ebay, so heads up...

Hi Sami,
A bit of an odd one you have there
I would now split the main casing to see if the gears have been removed or it's just been restricted on the selectors rods
Contact Chris Coles (sorry don't have his contact details) who is the guru for these boxes
Rgds,
Andy

Hi Andy, and thanks for the reply.

Yes, splitting the case must be the next action. I guess something must be removed because rods are bolted together but gears 3&4 engage and it can be rotated.

And thanks for the tip about Mr Cole.

B.R. Sami
