I am currently using the standard 1800 MGB rear axle which I believe has
a crown wheel and pinion ratio of 3.9:1.  Unfortunately this does not
match the installed Rover V8 engine and gearbox which is best suited to
a much higher ratio, say 3.07:1.  Does any know where I can obtain the
original spec MG V8 rear axle crown wheel and pinion for a reasonable
cost (500+ seems a bit steep) . Are there any alternative rear axles
MGC, etc that can be used with modification if I want to retain the MG 4
stud wheels.
