Subject: Overdrive

I would like to go at a reasonable highway speed and wonder if anyone knows
of an aftermarket overdrive that will work with a 46 1/2 ton 3-speed.
Columbia's are getting hard to find and expensive.

Subject: Re: Overdrive

I talked to Gear Vendors about an overdrive for the original flatty through
torque tube. They have a setup that fits inside the torque tube, a hydraulic
overdrive, that costs $2900. You have to cut the drive shaft (of course). If
you want to stay looking real original this could be a way to go. But for that
kind of money, one could add a modern 4 speed and 3:1 rear rend. If I change
any of the hubs on my '37 it is hard to keep it looking stock because of the
wide bolt pattern.

I wonder if the gearing out of a car would be higher?

Read Tom Teixeira's pages on how he gets highway speeds.
