Dont know about dimensions and bolt holes etc, but a 1970 T120 will be right foot shift and a T140V will be left foot shift i.e. the T140 primary cover will have a big hole for the gear lever to poke through, which presumably will need to be plugged / welded over.

It will bolt on.
If its off a left-shift T140,you can plug the gearshift hole with a cork from your favourite bottle of wine or spirits.Use a cork with a decorative plastic cap.If you prefer,you could turn up a metal plug and drive it into the hole.
It will most likely have the screw in plug over the timing pointer.If your rotor has 2 timing marks 180 degrees apart,one should still line up with the pointer at 38 degrees BTDC (check this with the timing plug).

Depends on the year, up until 1975 the gear shift was on the right.

:( Sorry! Of course I should have mentioned the RH shift. So, if I got hold of any model OIF case, pre '75, It should fit straight on, yes? I only ask because T120 stuff is always dearer than T140 stuff!
