Hi Chris..I assume they must have replaced the complete mainshaft with one from an overdrive gearbox...as you cant just take the tail section off a 2+2 box and bolt on an o/d....anyway...it all looks good...yes your probably correct re the prop..its the same length if you replace the 2+2 manual box with an o/d box.....Steve
