I don’t think you are supposed to use the overdrive in the lower gears though. It would put a lot of stress on it.

What do you mean? I use it in all gears in my manual transmission. It just makes every gear 26% taller.

The instruction sheet says you can use it in any gear, just not from a complete stop. Having seen the inside of them (and having cooked one) I'm pretty sure heat is the main problem. I don't think they are torque sensitive like the faireys and other overdrives.

Yeah, i'm not sure it would be great with an automatic. 1. Autos use a torque converter so you might be above the torque limits there. 2. OD instructions say don't use it from a dead stop. Not sure if that would make it pop or not. 3. I'm not sure how it would work to shift in and out of OD with an auto. I guess you can still pop it into neutral while driving....

Or just get bigger tires. I'm sure we can fit 38's with a little trimming. :)

Yeah I had 32s on my Arctic trip. Nice on the highway but a bit less peppy on the hills.

Ray you could do that. Lots of people have proposed it but I have never seen it done. Before starting out check the space. If it is similar to a Disco1 you need to make some small mods. Ray

I should just drop in a 5 speed manual once the auto box eventually dies. Then I can put in the overdrive and all is good.
