The MGC

Gearbox, overdrive & prop shaft

One manual type either with or without attached overdrive.  Automatic was also available.  MG Motorsport do a highly recommended 5 speed  manual version.

 

Gearbox

Overdrive

The  most common problem with the overdrive is simply due to dirty filters.  Make sure you get any metal “shavings” out of the bottom of the filter.

 

 

Prop shaft

Watch for a clunking prop shaft as if the coupling fails it acts like a spike into the ground with disastrous consequences.
