Vince, have you looked at the "How it was done" section?
[www.britishv8.org]

There are a couple of 302 TR4's there.

Hello and welcome.

I don't know where you are, but if you decide to restore it as standard, there's an engine here [www.ebay.com]

As regards a gearbox, get an overdrive box. Highway driving is pretty miserable without overdrive.
Here are a couple of boxes, but no o/d [www.ebay.com]

Here's another [www.ebay.com]. You might ask this chap if he has an o/d box.

Computer is the way to go nowadays. Persist.

Ivor
