Re: 4 Speed Manual OD Gearbox Identification

Hello Malky, Unless you plan on always driving the car sedately, Its advisable to upgrade the overdrive to competition spec - springs, pump. UDC/ clutch etc. Overdrive Spares can do this work for around £500.00 plus carriage plus VAT. The link to them follows: http://www.odspares.com/phdi/p1.nsf/......

Re: Heritage Throttle body injection

In terms of balance, that looks to be quite an amount of material removed at a large diameter for the main index mark. Did you have the flywheel balanced after the index marks were machined?

Disregarding the Lay-shaft cluster gears, the Reverse Idler spins the 2nd quickest at approximately 100 revs per 1000 engine revs less than third gear (which spins the quickest). Fourth Gear is e...

Re: Hub oil seals

Hello Steve,
I use both and each work fine once installed. A bit more care is required for the Aftermarket Unit, as they are easily distorted when installing. I have an arbor that spreads the load over nearly the whole surface area of the seal's face when pressing it into position.
