MGA with T9 gearbox on a tow dolly


Freshman Member
I've seen all the posts here and elsewhere advising on towing an MG on a tow dolly. My question is why do most advise putting the front wheels in the dolly and disconnecting the driveshaft? Why not tow it backwards and tie off the steering wheel? I assume there is a wear issue in the gearbox if the driveshaft is not disconnected. I have the T9 gearbox. Would the driveshaft still need to be disconnected? Assume 1000+ miles for the tow.

Go slow. Our cars were designed to go fast frontwards. Wind damage should be interesting.
