Wtd 28% J Type overdrive

#1 Post by Richard B » Sun Jun 08, 2014 10:12 pm

Has anyone got either a 28% Overdrive or a complete gearbox with a J Type 28% overdrive that they would like to swap for beer tokens?

:roll: Of course I missed one at Stoneleigh, when I did not really want one :oops:

Get your 25% one rebuilt as a 28%. Simples

28% Overdrives

1st digit denotes the drop and the second series of numbers identifies it

so

28/115873 = 2500S & TC
28/115872 = 2000

Andy price is very fair so if you want it go and get it!!

Regards,
Richard Symonds

PS the Stag and the TR6 were only fitted with a 25% drop so the above were the only ones so fitted - interesting!

I have always thought that our Pi would pull the 28% overdrive better than the S estate does, engine characteristics and the higher torque of the Pi always feels like it could pull another gear above o/d 4th.
The estate always feels like a 25% overdrive, like the Pi would suit it better as it gets a little 'flustered' at lower revs in o/d 4th.
I also prefer the instant engagement that only an A type can give.

Thanks guys! 8)
