The first one is right. They say it works fine but you have to collect it. From France presumably. It has an 1800S top so you'd have to get a 120 top drilled and tapped for one of the switches.

I'll have an M41+OD and the short propshaft up for sale in a few weeks, currently in the car behind a pallet of quarry tiles which I need to get sold first, so I can move the car and put in my J-type OD 'box.
Although it all works, the linings of the overdrive may need renewing, as I recall reversing up a very steep drive it would slip a bit!

Unfortunately a worn or damaged o/d slips going backwards when disengaged. I suspect that you knew that!

Not sure I actually did. I know you shouldn't use reverse when OD is still engaged.

The inhibitor switch would take care of that.

@Jackie1967, let me know if interested in the Overdrive 'box, It'll go on ebay otherwise, sometime next week I expect.
