I'm happy to hold onto it Ralph if it can get to me? SN7 area of Oxfordshire for those that don't know.

I'm based just off the A303 north of Yeovil if someone can get it near to me, I'm working alot at Royal Cornwall Hospital at the moment so I don't mind having a little trip for the last few miles to Camborne.

If it can get to me by Thursday night next week I can get it down as far as Tarrant Hinton? (Great Dorset Steam Fair)

Yes I could do that if I could meet you in Shaftsbury?

Haha. I can get it from Neils to Launceston but not for about four weeks now.

I can get it down to M25 (A1M) junction quite easily if someone is passing at a convenient point if that helps... 

(I work in Welwyn Garden City)

I will be in Leicestershire on Monday/Tuesday this week. Can anyone get it to Dave (Vulcan Bomber) so I can collect it?

There is no mad rush to get it here, I've lived without the OD for almost 12 months now so another 3 or 4 weeks won't matter, that would be great Rich if neil can get it to you, I can collect from you when your down in cornwall next, or if some one can get it to VB & monkie can collect that would work, but seems a bit mad to send it up country a bit so it can come South & then west.

to all cheers for the offers guys, much appreciated.

I didn't want any specific address, but only the destination was quoted (nice to know roughly where the collection was from!!)  I travel a lot over the country showing my dogs and live in the West Country, so I may have been able to help. As it is, it is sorted - a great bunch of folks on here!

Is there a plan sorted? Am I meeting Landroversforever near the Steam Fair or standing down?

can't get it from Neil to Leicester, so I think stand down guys, cheers for the offers of help, I waiting on a reply from Rich (reb78), so a few more weeks waiting won't hurt.

Okay, I will let you know if I have to towards Hertfordshire with work incase reb78 isn't able to get it to you for a while, or if he wants to drop it off with me on his travels past Yeovil. I'm finding myself coming down to the hospital in Truro quite a bit recently for work.

Travelling from the Wirral to Ashburton early September if that is of any use?

More likely to be A roads than M5 till past Hereford depending on time of day.

As above, if it can get to Oxfordshire I can meet you when you come up to your mum's Ralph?

Do you need any gaskets for it Ralph -  I *think" I may have some from when I had one fitted? If you do I'll have a hunt (may be mistaken but I'll look) and can post them on to you if I come across them.

Oh yes please, I'll need the adpator plate to transfer box & OD to adaptor plate at the very minimum.

Hi Ralph - found one - the big one. Also in the bag were two shaft seals - are these seals standard LR bits (I think they might be) or something specific for the overdrive? If you want the big one (and the wee ones are GKN-specific bits) dm me a postal address and I'lll put in post this week.
