sotal Posted September 16, 2006 Share Posted September 16, 2006 I've just been going through the Haynes Manual trying to work out which gearbox is best for ratios etc. I currently have a Suffix D Series 3 Gearbox. My father in law has 3 or 4 boxes lying around. My problems with the Suffix D box are: a - it's noisy b- the syncro on 3rd is very bad, and 4th isn't great c - there is a huge difference between 3rd and 4th c - is the bit we're trying to sort by choosing the best box. At the moment you have to over rev it in third to get decent performace in 4th. If you don't over rev it in third then in just lulls before getting going again in 4th. This is more noticeable on hills. The vehicle is a SWB 2.25 5 Bearing Diesel with 7.50x16 wheels on it. Is there a combination of transfer box and gearbox that is best?? Any suggestions would be great Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
