I think Bastuk, or at least a German specialist, makes a TR style casing for the a type OD. Or they used to......in which case you could get a non-TR type overdrive and put the correct case on it

 

I think a TR overdrive unit will be very very tricky to find at a reasonable price. As you have discovered so far. 

 

Have you got all teh other parts to convert the car to overdrive (mainshaft etc)

Hi clive,

 

iám own my TR6 since 1983 , its an RHD car ... she´s marvellous :)

 

so let´s go ...

i know this company well,

Out of respect, here in the forum, I would like to say nothing to this person.

 

yes, i do have a CD numbered Gearbox with the right mainshaft, and a mounted A-Type adapterplate to the gearbox ...

as i described i need an A-Type OD for a Triumph TR6,plus the oilpump exenter sleeve and springs as well.

 

may ,perhaps you will find one for me ;)

 

many thanks in advanced ttc , tom

and a happy TR New Year ...

I think the TR register is a better bet to try.

 

And all I remember is a chap converting a couple ofgearboxes to TR specification about 20 years ago. Though I did notice that the saloon and TR flanges are differently drilled! (he had been selling these, buying A type saloon boxes and TR non od boxes, when they were all about £50)

Hi cilve,

 

maybe you right , yes you are, but the TR register is pretty big, tough.

i personaly think , here ín yours forumworld ...its more harmonic :)

 

by the way , what´s your fancy car? a saloon 2500tc , i like this so much....

my second is a db9 :ph34r:

 

cheers tom

Very happy with my spitfire "hybrid"  (75% Triumph, 15% ford 5% subaru and a few other bits and pieces!)

But I also have a toledo with TR7 engine, which is a nice little car.

 

If I had my choice, I would add a mk1 PI, probably. Could be tempted by a TR5,..... but happy with mine!

Hi clive,

 

 

yes, my TR6 is not 100% british anymore, she got a massflowmetre form bmw , ecu form trijekt , injektors for bosch, i guess, modified intakes and some selfmade modified things around

well, a TR5 is a lovely thing,got more curves, as the TR6 :rolleyes:

 

cheers ttc tom
