All I want for Christmas is.... 3 more gears

Bit the bullet this afternoon and spent a few hours at Markich Motors scavenging enough old scrap to convert my daily 2500 to manual overdrive.. gives me something to box on with when the Christmas spirit runs low.

Rebuilt the slave and master cylinders (they were stainless sleeved) and redrilled an early Mk1 2000 flywheel to suit my Mk1 PI crank.

Just need to build an overdrive loom and do a little fettling...

Should keep me busy for a day
