Has anyone dabbled in the dark art of D Type OD rebuilds.

I am stuggling to find etched lines on the planet gears.

My annulus seems to have a bush as opposed to a needle roller, one less thing to disintegrate I suppose. Does this indicate early/late OD?

The marks are not very clear, a short etched line on the carrier and a etched or a small dot on the end of the tooth,  a good dry clean and mag glass may help
if the planet assy has been replaced then I dont know if spare parts are marked for best running
there marks are there to make each pinion take the same load or one can seemingly do all the work and the other  2 take a bit of a rest.

you are sure its a D type  solenoid O/s  not J type solenoid N/s  as J types planet gears are not marked

Deffo D type... just trying to remove the pump. Manual says Churchill tool one assumes someone has managed it by other means.

I've definitely done that - the one I rebuilt from Toby's original box (to go on my brother's Mk2) had a broken pump, which I successfully replaced. I don't recall what (if any) complex tool or method I needed.

Theres a screw from the front face? That locks it in place, need to make up a threaded drag to pull the assy out
you can fit a higher capacity pump      done that

I am trying to remove item 24 here http://www.canleyclassics.com/triumph-spitfire-mkiii-d-type-overdrive-internals as it appears that needs to come off then i can screw in a bolt and use a nut to pull it out.

However the bit i am trying to get out requires a churchill tool. Manual says;

Unscrew the non return valve body using tool L.213....

Then it goes on to explain screwing in the thread to remove the pump body. The non return valve body looks like it is a circle with flatted off sides. Only snag is I cant find anything to fit over this and get the torque on to it to remove it.

Any thoughts?

Don't remember how i took that part out, think i may have left it in actually. I did have to change the plunger as that was square.

After much trying to fabricate a tool i gave up. AS the whole unit is a press in fit I did this... Undid screw on front face... bashed plunger down, eventually the 40/50 year old stickyness gave up and it slid down and out. The plunger was broken anyway so not worries at all it needs to be replaced.

Next is trying to remove the speedo drive from the rear, thats stuck to Think this is the joy of disassembling a 40/50 year old overdrive.

Square? Pah! The one I took out had broken in half.
