Just a small note, it's not a Dolomite it is a 'Triumph 1500' although very similar there is a lot of differences with the gearbox and running gear being the biggest difference. ALL dolomites are rear wheel drive. I'm mentioning this to save you getting the wrong parts as the Triumph 1500 gearbox is very rare and unique to that car.

It's worth giving Mike a call, he's usually very helpful. More experienced in TR and saloon boxes but you never know.

I thought my 1975 1500TC which is rear wheel drive was not a Dolomite?
