I went out yesterday to get a window switch for my Transit Van, I wasn't sure the problem was the switch so went to a friends place to try his one.. when I got there the switch was the wrong one... Never mind...about thatImage I came home with a Chrysler 4 speed A833 Gearbox, clutch, bellhousing, shifter and propshaft Image.. the box is the Alloy casing one with the overdrive 4th GearImage... it has the Hemi Alloy Bellhousing and is actually the one from Bob Clevenger's SP Pirate JennyImage.. What a brilliant outing.. So glad my window switch packed up!!Image
It's so light I lifted the complete lot out of the van on my ownImage, I have a few of these gearboxs but really wanted the one with overdrive 4th gear and the alloy case is a good bonus.. the last thing you need is anymore weight in an Interceptor.. the other A833 boxs I have are cast-iron and extremely heavy, I have just rebuilt one of them that I got from Duncan a while back and have the complete conversion with clutch pedal and shifter on my bench ready to go into my Mk2 but couldn't bring myself to take it off the road as yet.. but now this is the box that will be taking it's place.. Right .. out to the Barn!!Image

So, Grant, you will of course get rid of the other old gearboxes now, no point in having them cluttering up the place is there? :roll: :wink: One in, one out, just like your Mk2 steering wheels...

How did Pirate Jenny's box end upon this side of the Pond? Do you know who owns her now? And is Bob still with us? I notice his website is defunct.
