Re: Auto box tailshaft movement

There is nothing to support the rear of the shaft. Once the prop slides back in then the prop runs in a white metal bearing and the rear of the tailshaft is supported. There should be negligable play on the prop.

Re: Auto Flexi plate / fly wheel

I've had auto boxes (35 and 65) on Dolly's, both 1500 and 1850 Dolomites weren't ever fitted with 35 boxes. All I can say is that I've still got the box in the garage. :shock: Tell me the series number on the data plate and I should be able to tell you what it's really from. I don't think it's even...

Re: Gearbox rear oil seal

If you have enough room behind the box to be able to remove the tailshaft housing then I can't see why you would have problems removing the seal in-situ, but should the need arise the tailshaft housing can be removed without any problems. I can't be sure you'll be able to get at the back of the seal...

Re: 2000 Estate - 4.1 Diff

Back to the original question, I have a 1972 databook, and it is in line with everything you have said. Personally I would keep the higher 3.45 diff, the car will easily pull the higher first gear, and although the accelleration will be marginally slower, I would prefer the more relaxed high speed c...

Good to hear the Rover and jag are still on the fleet. I must have missed the aquisition of the Maxi. (Or forgotten about it).

Re: Auto gearbox identification plates

I can find no info however as to what model the 452 box was originally fitted to when new. According to the paperwork I have it just lists that as 2500 10/68-05/74, but I can't say I've ever seen BW35 boxes with even series numbers, but, with over 200 different series numbers to my knowledge I can'...

Re: Auto gearbox identification plates

There will be differences between different Series of boxes. Generally series runs with numbers and letters are early boxes, (very early boxes just have 2 letters), and the lower the number the earlier the box. The later boxes are all number series. The rather strange thing is that on the BW35 AFAIK...

Re: Gearbox rear oil seal

It's a good idea to pack the back of the seal with vaseline before you fit it, otherwise sometimes the knocking to fit the seal is enough to dislodge the spring out of the seal.
