JD Clas­sics five-speed gear­box £POA

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - jd­clas­sics.co.uk

This new five-speed syn­chro­mesh gear­box for clas­sic Jaguar mod­els works as a re­place­ment to the four­speed Moss gear­box and has al­ready been fit­ted to JD Clas­sics’ cus­tomer XKs and Mk2s. The gear­box is lighter and pro­vides bet­ter per­for­mance than the orig­i­nal.

It has syn­chro­mesh on all ra­tios, he­li­cal cut gears and a re­in­forced alu­minium cast cas­ing, and is ca­pa­ble of han­dling up to 400bhp and 350lb ft of torque. It’s the same size as Jaguar’s all-syn­chro­mesh 4.2-litre four-speed gear­box and func­tions as a re­place­ment in a va­ri­ety of Jaguar mod­els, in­clud­ing those without syn­chro­mesh, like the C-type, E-type 3.8 S1 and XK.
