Ford/Jaguar AJ25/AJ30 3.0L V6 /RX8 adapter
This adapter plate was designed to bolt a Ford/Jaguar AJ25/AJ30 3.0L V6 engine to an rx8 gearbox using as many ford factory parts that fit this engine. It utilizes the starter motor from the v6 Jaguar engine the flywheel will have to be changed for a ford mondeo v6 MY2000 lower spec model flywheel and clutch cover machined to take the jag starter motor ring. The clutch pivot arm will have to have the height adjusted to give the correct clutch arm slack.
In this case you should be able to use a mazda 6 slave cylinder with a bit of spacing off the bellhousing (the type with a 90 degree bleed nipple) to avoid the cylinder head along with the rx8 clutch slave cylinder push rod and rx8 clutch arm and release bearing with very little work, but In some cases the clutch arm pivot point height might need adjusting to suit. Some grinding will be needed for the starter motor to clear the bellhousing. We have kept the starter motor in the engines original position so that all the standard sump and parts can be used where needed. There is also a bracket on this adapter plate so a clutch cable can be used. It is possible to adapter the rx8 clutch arm to take a clutch cable. The bolt pitch tapped in the adapter plate is M10x1.5mm.
Tested on road and in motorsport to ensure we offer the most reliable adapter plate on the market.
