    Wayne, I'm curious what your overdrive looks like and what transmission/transfer its on. I just got a 60 with a Fairy installed. The aft section of the trasfer case is different than stock and the overdrive is an integral part of the transfer. It works great, but I can't find enough information about it. Let me know if you find a good source of info. Thanks.

    Don't worry Trev when I find out I will let you know.It mounts on the back of the tranny at an angle and is square shaped. It may work I just don't know yet

    man that would be nice...bolt on overdrive. on the three speed case, it is on the back, and is a pita to remove, because it requires dissassembly of just about everything. on the split case, from what i hear, it replaces the back side of the case and is intigrated into that. hope this helps you out a little.

    I do have the integrated one with my 4-speed. Anybody know anything about operating limitations? I know some overdrives such as the one that Mark's in AUS sells cannot be used in the lower gears due to torque limitations.

    Thanks. I looked for their website but couldn't find it. Are you still having clutch problems? I'm sure you have a different overdrive with that 3 spd, but I can't see how it is related to your clutch problem. Your overdrive is mounted on the rear of the transfer, right?

    I think that this was mentioned before, but Rovers Down South (www.roversdownsouth.com) carries a bunch of parts for the Land Rover Fairey overdrives. You might try contacting them about the Land Cruiser ones. The guy that owns the place is really cool. One of the guys that I wheel with buys a lot of stuff from him. He may be able to import parts also if you need them.
