Hello everyone,
I have also posted this on the MGB topic listing - I'm just wanting to make a complete job of rebuilding my 4 synchro overdrive gearbox and I've found the double row bearing 13H7268 at the back end of the mainshaft seems to be no longer available. Is there an alternate bearing that can be used - maybe with a small modification?
Many thanks.

Personally I don't know of one, but give Overdrive Spares who are based in Rugby a call on 01788 540666

I have been having a problem contacting them lately but you may have better luck.

Thanks for the suggestions. The bearing is not as unobtainable as folks may think. They can be bought any day of the week from SC Parts Group here in the UK for £242.24 each. Item #13687 on their web site. I should have looked under MGB gearboxes instead of MGC gearboxes. School boy error.
