Overdrive aus Canada

I like the plug 'n play way!

Delivered in a wooden box!



Inside pure mechanical stuff.





Additional an extended oil pan had been asked for.



Time to check the width of the incomming wheel.





It was the right one!
The taper bearing has to be removed and set back to the new shaft.



The new version just preloades the bearing by a chrust whasher. We call it "Tellerfeder". But it's a thick one. I like that way. That's engeneering. Just have a look at the direction, that's all!


The lever bracket is now mounted to the transmission gear housing.
That's the great!





Dafür muss natürlich der Getriebetunnel wieder herunter. Aber mit verbautem Spezialgegengalter ...



... ist auch das kein Problem.

Done!







The linkage is connected with left- and righthand threads. Easy to adjust the right position of the handle.







I bend the handle a little bit. No collusions with others anymore.



The new grommet has a glued in third one.



Also new: the filling screw needs a 28mm spanner and there is a spy screw in the middle!

Best of all: a notification reminds you about the oil! So you don't need to ask this question here. Great!


I like this oil pan!
On the uppermost right you will have the look at this small sheet of stainless steel. This bracket carries the heat shield against the exaust pipe.


But I got an email from the owner, just minutes ago:

He arrived safe and sound at home.

But

without engaging the overdrive!

There was a terrifying noise when he tried it.

Has anyone any idea what's going wrong here?

Help is needed!

I just got one as well. I might suggest it's the way it was engaged. I would contact the guys up in Canada, they'll sort it out in the AM.

Thanks Gustaf!

You're right. The way is much longer than I suspected!

Everything is ok now!

The owner is happy and I'm able to take a napp.

I had issues with mine, the shaft connecting the overdrive to the handle was too long and the lever was interfering with all the other levers. So I couldn't engage it.

A few measurements later and a pipe cutter, we are in business.

Dunno, just a thought.

Length from eye to eye should be 530mm (about 21")

I shortened it to get both of the levers in the same position.
Ok, only idiots like me will do that!

I have been running mine now for about 3 weeks, works perfectly. Had it installed by my mechanic, he's done several and did mention that they had problems with interference from the other levers. He made some adjustments and it's been fine.

You get a bit of gear noise for the first 1,000 km's or so as the gears break in. (very slight, nothing more than what you hear with a rebuilt transfer case) Once you are at about 1500km's change the oil and you should be set.

The additional gear is perfect for highway driving. (why didn't I do this when I had my 90??) Doing about 110Kmh the engine isn't working so hard. I have a 400k trip in a couple weeks, so I am looking forward to seeing what kind of fuel economy I am getting. Currently in the city I'm getting about 10L per 100KM (about 23 MPG).

Call Ray at Roamer, He's always eager to help.

Also, engaging and dis-engaging the overdrive is a much slower action than shifting the regular transmission. You have to shift slowly, from the dis-engaged point forward, it stops slightly in the middle (neutral) and pulls it's self into the engaged position. (much like learning to shift a manual) you have to "feel" your way in and out a little, and it will become obvious what the speed to shift is. If you "cram" it forward or back, you will grind.
