You'll have no trouble identifying it, it's about 3" or 4" across and has and oddly-shaped black plastic cover.
Here's a picture of one off the car:

thank you

Do you think that a gearbox rebuilder like Chester transmissions etc would put a new one on as part of the rebuild cost or do you think or would that be deemed an ancillary?

Many thanks

I would have thought the rebuild would be just the internals.

How has your box and converter been/behaved since you got a rebuilt box from chester and how long ago/many miles since. Hope you dont mind me asking but interested in your views i.e a real life review of qulaity/longevity ta
