Volvo B58 with a SCG Transmission

Post by mikeb58 »

Hi everyone,
I have a b58 Volvo with a self changing gears transmission which has started leaking quite badly somewhere between the clutch area. would anyone happen to know of a place in south east Queensland that can repair them or would anyone have a schematic or any info at all haha.
Alternatively i may change the transmission to a manual setup would anyone happen to know of any bolt in transmissions I could purchase as a substitute ?

Could be a leaking seal in the flywheel. I would suggest talking to an automatic transmission specialist

It would be the Wilson/SCG Epicyclic with CAV Mono-Control.

Same arrangement fitted to AEC Swifts and some Hinos.
