    early transmission vs od transmission for 3 main engine

    i just purchased an overdrive from an early mg. it does not have a shift lever. moss lists one for the od and one for the regular unit. my mg mechanic says they are interchangeable.

    anyone have any direct experience with this?

    The OD lever was straight, the non-OD lever was crooked...

    I believe so. I do know that the two are interchangeable....

    I think the distance from the pivot to the ball at the bottom is a different length. I have seen them used in early o/d boxes. Worth checking into. Maybe a call to Moss tech line is in order? Good find getting a mk 1 overdrive!
