Default Wanted - Long front cover for a type 9 gearbox (The V6 one I think!)

Does anyone have a long version (I think from the 2.8 amd 2.9 V6 models) of the front gearbox cover they want to sell? Its the part that the clutch release bearing slides on.

Turns out I was done with my gearbox. I was told it was from the big V6s, with the better gearing, so I took it, and then bought the (expensive!) Caterham spacer to take account of the long input shaft. Turns out to be from a 2.3 V6, which has the same ratios as a standard box, but with the longer input shaft. Now I've welded all my engine/gearbox mounts in and had the chassis powdercoated, my only option is to use this box, and then at least when the right gearbox comes up, it'll drop straight in! Final ball ache though is that the front cover is from a diesel, and is shorter than the normal V6 one!. I hate building cars sometimes!!!!
