    I think I have found a 2 speed for my MCD.

    For the last 2 years there have been rumors of a 2 speed being realeased for the MCD but due to updates and technical difficulties it just never happened. Frustrated I tried to make my own 2 speed tranny it would work for a little while then fall apart I am no engineer!! Then a friend of mine sold me a FG 3 speed tranny. I was playing around with it when I made the discovery that this tranny would fit on my MCD. The gears mesh I am going to have to make a layshaft no big deal. Here is a picture

    RE: I think I have found a 2 speed for my MCD.

    The FG clutch bell shaft is alot longer than the stock MCD clutchbell shaft and you will have to change size of the ball bearing but I think it will work for parking lot bashing I don't race offroad with my MCD.

    RE: I think I have found a 2 speed for my MCD.

    You have good eyes I am using parts from the BRCP 3 speed the clutchbell especially. The clutchbell shaft is long enough to go thru the motor mount plate on the MCD. Enough of the shaft goes thru so I can put on 2 pinions. I plan on testing it as soon as I get my layshaft made.

    Thanks Badboy2 in the past I had some problems getting the layshaft made so it would hold up. The Mcd is a heavyweight you know everything needs to be on the beefy side.

    RE: I think I have found a 2 speed for my MCD.

    So is this just going to be custom made one off, or possibly more made?

    No badboy2 If it works I would be willing to show how to modify a FG tranny so you could use it on a MCD but I am not interested in manufactoring them don't have the time.

    RE: I think I have found a 2 speed for my MCD.

    Looking good NH. Let me know if you need any help getting that thing to work. Im not much into 2 speeds but I know the workings and might be able to help out with parts if any.
    As far as waiting on people to mass produce things for our rigs, I always felt like if I have the means, I'll do it myself. Im still waiting on a conversion for the twin into a FG. Oh wait, I already have one.
