The manufacturers most likely never gave a thought to extended duty for the 
cars they were designing, miles maybe, but not the many decades of use these 
cars are seeing. Maybe  one could go to the junkyard with a servo and 
compare. Look at GM products first as they are less expensive to buy new.  I 
have a Midget with a Datsun Transmission. Rivergate says digging through a 
pile of motors in a junkyard is how they came up with that trans for their 
idea to improve the Spriget. It fit perfectly with an adapter on the MG 
mounts and no trimming of the tub for the shifter. You don't want to forget 
to install the speedo cable, though.
