#1 Laycock de Normanville

Post by lowact » Thu Feb 22, 2018 5:46 am

Hello, can anyone recommend who I should talk to about parts availability for LdM OD's? I was assuming O/D Spares in Rugby (odspares@aol.com) but have had no response to date. At the same time I note an old PeterCrespin post that includes "...the Laycock engineers who run the repair place in Sheffield..."
Might these be the same or different?
Thx
Regards,
ColinL

I got my spares from odspares. Very nice and helpful contact. Just wait, maybe nag them.

If someone here lives nearby, it may be an idea to go and have a look ?

Overdrive Repair Services is definitely in the Sheffield area and I can recommend them. Their address is

Phone: 0114 248 2632

I have not come across OD spares in Rugby

I used the Sheffield guys to have my O/D rebuilt and can recommend them for their work and customer focused attitude.

Hi,

Another positive vote for O/D Spares in Rugby, this is where I got all the parts for my uprated rebuild.

Dave definitely prefers to discuss by phone & he's picked up both times I have called him in the last week.

If time zones allow give him another call on Monday?

Good luck,

Dave.

Thx Tony I certainly will, od (Compact type A) needs a lot. But not if I cannot first buy or swap a mainshaft, to convert my gearbox from a KF to a KFN type. So currently I have "all points bulletin" out for a kfn gearbox from xj6 s1 or s2 ...
How come u have OD parts?

I repair Overdrives quite often and mainly compacts. Good luck finding a mainshaft thin on the ground
these days...... I also have a few complete MOD gearboxes to suit. Any all synchro Jaguar OD box mainshaft
will suit part number C21939
