Borg-Warner (Rancho) Overdrives
Besides the popular Warn overdrive, there is another type you might find on an old Jeep. The Borg-Warner overdrive is different than the Warn overdrive. It was originally designed for two wheel drive applications. An adapter kit was once available to mount one behind the Dana 18 transfer case. The rear driveshaft had to be shortened. Overdrive was only useable in 2WD. The Borg-Warner unit was a forerunner of the Warn overdrive. Once the Warn unit was introduced in the early 1960′s, sales dropped off considerably because of the complex installation.
All Overdrives use 80-90w weight oil. Do NOT use synthetic oil.
