AM80 High Ration Crown wheel and pinion

Mike Tebbett is investigating getting a new high ratio crown wheel and pinion made by Guest Gears for my AM80, just like the batch organised many years ago by Peter Nunn.

The ratio will be 12/48 or 4.1 and I think they will surely also suit the AM2?   I shall order one set for my car but of course, if we can get a few more made then the price is significantly reduced.

e.g. for two sets £1175.00 or for three sets, it is £900.00. Plus VAT and carriage. Let me know if you are interested. 


Clos(er) ratio gearbox

Peter Nunn tells me that many years ago he organised the manufacture of nine sets of close-ratio gears for the AM2 and AM80 gearbox. Does anyone still have an unused set still on the garage shelf?
