Where can I get an MGBGTV8 gearbox reconditioned?
Tina Elias posted a note on the V8BB in February 2005 saying "I have recently obtained a spare original V8 overdrive gearbox which I intend to get reconditioned in advance of my own gearbox failing. Can anyone suggest a good firm to undertake the work, preferably in the south of England and ideally in the Surrey - Hampshire region?" (13.3.05)

It is worth getting a V8 gearbox and overdrive overhauled or rebuilt by a specialist to make sure it is set up correctly

Any member who has had a V8 gearbox reconditioned and feels able to recommend the specialist, please let the V8 Registrar know so details can be posted on this webpage for the benefit of fellow members.
