I've not been on the TR Forum for a good while, mainly due to other car commitments but now I'm looking to do some work on my TR50 resto.
I have a 2.5S saloon gearbox with J Type overdrive that I intend to install in my GT6. This would be a straight swap since I have been running it with an identical unit for nearly 30 years. This leaks profusely and is of unknown mileage, but still has an excellent shift. Once this swap is done I intend to have the ex-GT6 box rebuilt and eventually use it to replace the non overdrive unit currently fitted in the TR250.
I'm looking to have the rebuild done by a local company since I'd like to be able to deliver it personally rather than risk using a courier.
I've been asked the same questions -availability of spare parts for both the gearbox and overdrive.
I'm not sure about the gearbox but it sticks in my mind that there is a company that rebuilds overdrives, or am I having a senior moment?
Ideally I'd like to have the same company rebuild both and source the parts themselves.
Any recommendations please for both parts suppliers and also rebuilders?
