    Dont want the overdrive?

    Ref: Mg Midget etc. Can someone tell me if it is straightforward to remove overdrive unit and just connect the longer prop to the back of the gearbox output shaft. Cheers, Dave

    Mainshaft will be a different length if it's anything like Spitfire / Alpine boxes.

    Dave, why are you wanting to erase the overdrive unit from the drive-train anyhow? Surely its a bonus to have it these days?

    Again, why remove the overdrive? If you are the overdrive unit replaces the tail shaft of the standard box and as Kev said the main shaft is diferent. Best to just swap the box and prop for non overdrive ones.
