Welcome to our resource for MG Car Information.
Triumph Spitfire - Transmission conversion
I am a regular subscriber to the MG site (I know, I know), but a friend with a Spitfire asked me a question that I think deserves an answer from the true experts...... The folks that own and operate Spitfires.
He (my friend) was told that he could use an overdrive transmission from a Volvo to convert his Spit to an O'Drive Spit.
The question is this: Has anyone ever done this? If so, what model Volvo was used and how much modification to the car is involved?
Thanks in advadce.
|Hi, not sure about the volvo swap, but he should check out the weber carb web site, you can get a complete 5speed ford tranny with driveshaft that would work great. Tom|
