Re: Gearbox/overdrive question

Hi Sal, The body numbers aren't much help to you really, as there are no known (so I believe) records of specific vehicles they related to.

Re: Prop shaft question...

The similar principle of a the sliding spline and UJ exiting from the gearbox on a BW35 auto Triumph doesn't seem to have any adverse affect relative to driveline vibration.
