Re: Universal 5424 transmission
Looks like I have to replace the transmission on my O'Day 34 with the Universal 5424 and and Hurth 50 trannie. From what I have researched it appears the ZF 6 or 10 are the natural replacements, but I've been told that would involve moving the engine to accommodate the slightly longer ZFs. Are there alternatives that would not involve moving the engine? Has anyone had any experience with this?
There's a Hurth HBW50 on Ebay, rebuilt, for $1295.
