Hi and welcome to the club. :thumb:

For sturdy: ZF 4- or 5-speed but finding the parts for the conversion can be a problem. This topic in Conversions and modifications may be useful.

For simplicity: mend the Vauxhall transmission. For advice on this ask in Manual transmission.

Ah, a CF350: cancel Vauxhall transmission above - only fitted to short wheelbase models.

Best place to ask about conversions is Conversions and modifications. :thumb:
