Don thats a lot of cash unless it includes a transmission. If not you will
still need an adapter plate,short shaft,wiring and switch,

plus if quality unknown you'll want to rebuild it before you install it.




If it's with a tranny and has switch grab it fast it's a great price. If it's
only a (A) type in a box $500.00

The recent overdrive thread got me thinking again about what I want to do
with my non-OD TR4. About 3 years ago I bought an "A" OD TR6 box with the
intent of overhauling it myself. I completely disassembled it to find that
it appears to be in pretty good condition. Time was spent time on eBay
sourcing some items such as main bearings, solenoid, harness etc, but it
still needs some parts to be replaced. Then life got in the way and as my
current box is still running well my motivation was to drive it rather than
work on it (too much). This weekend, I noticed that my clutch bite point is
getting very high, so I suspect that a transmission pull is coming soon to
change the clutch.



I had OD on my TR4 and TR5 back in the day and loved it, but I am also
thinking about going the 5-speed route. I think that I have heard all the
arguments both ways and just need to make up my mind; cost is obviously a
factor. If I go the latter, then I would like to gauge interest in a
disassembled OD unit before I put it on eBay.

Hi Ian,

I'd certainly be interested in it, as I have an OD-less early TR6, but I think
the cost of shipping might be prohibitive given you're probably in the states,
and I'm in Australia. I'm pretty sure you won't have any problems selling the
overdrive, even if it is disassembled provided all the unobtanium bits are
still there...

Aye, there's the rub. To me, "disassembled" is practically synonymous with
"crucial, unobtanium part missing".

List,

Just to clarify: almost all 'A' type overdrive "wear" parts are obtainable,
new, from guys like John Esposito of Quantumechanics. Any parts no longer
manufactured are still in good supply. Again, from John in the US and others
in the UK.

There are Healey 'A' types everywhere. Unlike Triumphs, almost every Big
Healey that came to the US had overdrive, all 'A' types. Except for the
annulus and rear case, both obtainable rebuilt or new, they are, for all
practical purposes, identical to the Triumph 'A' type version. Every
recycled Healey has one.

So don't dispair. You don't have to go to a Toyota 5 speed if you don't want
to.

Ed Woods
