    Default Saturn overdrive

    I have to laugh at myself sometimes, but this takes the cake. I have a Saturn overdrive unit that I bought a couple of years ago. My problem is that I can't remember if it is a new one or rebuilt, anf I just can't tell by looking.

    Anybody know a way to figure it out?

    I'm sure you would

    Actually I'm getting ready to sell it and don't want to make a mistake on the description.

    It's a 6 spline 29 tooth. Since I am only keeping my 70 and getting rid of all the others. I can't use it.

    You can usually tell by popin the bowel gear out and seeing if any lub has made it's way into the needle bearings between the spline section and outer bowel. Most new ones (or a recent rebuild) will have some fine grease or petro jelly in them instead of gear lube.

    DJ - mail me. I have one I may be selling for a T-14.

    Actually, the 6-spline 29-tooth may work just fine.

    I haven't bought my adapter yet to mate my SM420 to the D18.
