Long shot here

With the current craze for nostalgia most people think of Chevys and Hemis, but in Blighty it was Jags and other small engines.

Can anyone help with info on home built overdrive transmission.........best type to use.....best clutch to use etc etc.....to be used behind Ford crossflow/pre crossflow.....I know quite a few were built back in the day by various racers, so any info would be appreciated.

Cheers
Johnny Hall

Hi Jon, I used to have a box that was made by John Whitmore, it used a jag overdrive unit, so 2 speed, no reverse and a 3mm thick clutch can, had a Ford Thames van clutch modified so it was similar to a Hayes slider clutch, russ carpenter knows loads about these! It came with an old r. e. d I bought called express delivery which Martin babb and Stephen Collins owned at various times. The spirit car runs a modified bw35 so maybe Maurice takoor could help! Cheers wayne
