MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - SD1 gbox ratios
|Could some lister supply me with details of the gearbox ratios in the SD1 Vitesse 5speed box? Cheers. Danny.|
|hi the ratios are first 3.320|
regards mark a h.
|Mark, call me an officious intermeddler but I would have bet money that O/D was .833.|
|Variations exist depending on gearbox number. This is stamped into the lower flat boss on the right side of the main casing.|
|Pre '82 boxes had 0.833:1 5th gear, post '82 Vitesse, VDP and V8 had 0.792:1 |
|.. assuming that the original gearbox is still fitted, which in most cases now is not the case, so you need the gearbox number to ensure that you haven't beed slipped a 30A or 34A van box.|
|And once I'm armed with the said number, then what??|
