Now that you have a faster, smoother more durable engine, call Gary's Model A. They make a smooth synchronized 4-speed transmission for the Model A that installs with few modifications. 4th gear is overdrive, this gives you a higher top end and lowers engine speed for normal cruising. This will conserve fuel, lower your RPMs, preserve your engine life, all while having a quieter engine at a normal cruising speed.
