I bought this overdrive over a year ago. I guess I fell into the right place at the right time. The guy that had it was in need of some money and sold it to me very cheap considering its condition. He had been through 10 or more overdrives, replacing all seals and bearings as needed. He never opened this one up because of how tight the gears and bearings felt. I replaced all the seals and was amazed that everything was in practically "new" condition.
With information from the man i bought this from and from my own research I determined these would have been a bright silver when new. This was just a random silver we had in the cabinet at the body shop. I bought stainless bolts then polished the heads myself to give it a little more detail.
Now if I could only get in "gear" and get the tractor done!

Hi there 49 h John Grott here what are you going to put the overdrive in a f- model farmall. Back when i was a kid , my dad picked up a f-30 farmall from the nieghbor motor was siezed . Dad pick up a 4cyl. continental diesel some where . He pulled the old motor out of the f-30 and got some heavy walled i believe it was 3 x 6 in. box tubing and remade a new fraim . HE had to drop the motor 6 in. to get the crank and transm. to line up . iIt took about a steddy week of enginering things but she fired up and we were able to pull 4 - 16s with it . It also had one of those overdrives in it , we would get the tractor rolling in 4th gear and when it got to wide open rolling you put the tractor trans. in neutral and shiffted the od . into gear and reengaged the clutch and hang on . :lol: :lol: Boy that thing would fly , don't now the mph . but i wouldn't be scared to say around 40 mph . :lol: :lol:

Awesome story John. Is that tractor still around?
This will go in an F-14. Unlike the overdrive you had in the F-30 which basically gave you only one 'overdrive' gear, this gives you dual range in all gears including reverse. I believe the gear ratio is around 2.3:1 so it will over double the speed in every gear.

"From time to time, we have been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government for, by, and of the people. But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price."
