  1. Hi all, Quick introduction, I'm Russell Banyard long-term TSSC member (28 years), current writer of the Suffolk Area monthly reports and this is my first topic creation on the TSSC board. My current project is a MK3 GT6 that I've just returned to the road after 18months of gradual progress. The previous owner said the overdrive was sticking in and sure enough he was correct. Unfortunately it's not an electrical problem, that all seems to be working well. It's defininately mechanical, as once stuck it can only be freed by a sharp tap on the overdrive casing with a hide mallet. Driving it about on Saturday with the tunnel off and repeated overdrive 'in/out/tap when stuck', seems to have improved matters. But when the overdrive has been in for longer than a minute or so, it won't release. So my question is this, can you remove the D-Type overdrive from a GT6 without taking the gearbox out of the car? Having pulled my spare gearbox apart this evening on the bench, it looks like there might be enough room with the prop out of the way, but before I start, am I on a hiding to nothing? Also, is there anything else I can try before pulling the box. I've checked the actuating lever, cleaned the filter and put new EP80/90 in the box. Any help appreciated, thanks, Russell.
