In addition to knowing what type of overdrive, 'A' or 'J', it would be helpful
to know a bit of the o/d's history:
1. Has it ever worked properly?
2. Is it newly installed?
3. Just rebuilt by someone?

Subject: [TR] tr6 reversing woes
my last post on this had my friend experiencing a difficult time reversing his
TR6. its like the handbrake is on.
our of gear it rolls forward and backward very easily. but once you try and
reverse using the motor in the normal fashion it struggles.
the car has laycock overdrive. we did not think it was working.
in talking to my friend last night we found when driving the car at +/-60 mph
his revs are +/-2200.
sounds like the overdrive is stuck in the on position.
i have so little experience with overdrives.
so what could be the cause of stuck on and what are the remedies?
