Gearbox

Now , much as it brakes my heart to even think of this ( being a Ford man at heart ) if we had to use one of those Chevy Engines which is the best gearbox to use cost and reliability wise ?
In Harvey speak that means cheap and built like a brick out house Exclamation

Hi,

I know a lot of people are going the quick change gear ratio box route,but we have had the same chevy 3 speed box in every car we have had since racing spedeworth v8.The thing is bulletproof. Some also still use zf boxes as well but I cant fault the chevy box myself.
Poss have to search ebay or the like to find one tho,but poss be worth the look.

Yours Rob2

I saw a chevy gear box in pete bloomfields work shop last year. I know its a long shot but he may still have it. I've lost his number thou but someone on here may have it for you.

I use a CF gear box and there pretty robust but they do wear out eventually. Thay are getting a tad pricey at the month aswell.

Mr Harvey Frost,

Are you building a Spedeworth V8 Stock Car? Or is this to go in a road car?

Regards Daryl Harris.
