ENV Gearboxes

Post by Big Col » Wed Sep 27, 2017 8:17 pm

I think the answer is no.
But were any pre war Daimlers, Lanchesters or BSA's fitted with the ENV four speed crash gearbox. If so do any service manuals exist that I could use for reference.
I confess (as a fully paid up member of the DLOC) that it is not for any of the club covered cars but an AC I am restoring and the information on ENV gearboxes is proving to be thin on the ground.
Colin,
I may be slow but I’m rough as well !

Not to my knowledge - but surely Brian Smith is your best bet - as he knows everything about everything about Daimers .....................

Hi, now I'm pretty sure that 4 speed manual gearbox's were an option on some models, but sofar, have never seeen or heard of one!
Perhaps, someone out there can enlighten us??
Not bad after the equivalent of about 6 Vodca's and Coke !!

What's this Forum coming to? I can't spell Daimler, and Big Al can't spell Vodka.
