Re: urgent gearbox on clevo help

With a single rail, its only a matter of time..........they're not a strong box. The toploader is what you should be chasing. Few more $$ but well worth it.

The toploader is quite different to look at actually. Access plate on top, no shifter mount on extension housing.........and no external "single rail"......3 long external shifter linkages.

4th is a direct drive 1:1 so this overdrive you are talking about? Hmmm.

Put the gearbox in 4th gear. Mark the input and output shaft in the same spot with a white paint pen etc. Rotate the input shaft a few times. Compare the amount of rotation on the output shaft. Same or more? That will answer your question about overdrive.

Do you want a change because of the overdrive luxury or manual thing.

Mate, Go to www.davidkeetoploaders.com and look at the bit on "toploader imposters" ( http://www.davidkeetoploaders.com/imposters.htm )
If it looks like a toploader, has an overdrive and a 1:1 3rd, then I'd be staying well away from it.....
