    It's a long shot, but I am looking for a 29 tooth overdrive unit. 10 spline for use with a T14 is preferred, but I can make use of a 6 spline version if it is in good condition.

    I am aware of the risks of buying used, but the cost of new or rebuilt is out of the question for me at this time so it's worth a try.

    Thanks,
    Michael

    I probably still have a 10 spine hub I would swap for a 6 spline one if you can't find the 10 spline version.

    Bump again. Big trip coming up... will probably be over 4000 miles round trip (Raleigh NC to CO) so an overdrive would be really useful!

    As you probably already know....Although not a budget used one, but not as expensive as a new Saturn unit from AA, Herm has some rebuilt, non-specified units that kind of split the price difference between new Saturn and used....

    Right now there are no overdrives available. Herm cannot get bearings for the planetary. He also supplies AA for the Saturn so no joy there either.

    Wow. Is this a covid supply chain disruption issue?

    Yes in a nutshell. India is pretty much shut down completely right now. Many things go through that country in all or part of the manufacturing process.

    Just a guy that works two full time jobs and doesn't have a lot of time to answer knuckle pudding and flat towing questions. :D
