I have a CF camper with the 2.3 petrol engine and overdrive gearbox the whole camper is yours for £1000 call/text me 07860212408
I think I have read somewhere that it is possible to fit a 5 speed box on
the petrol 2.3lt Bedford CF...

Anyone have any experience of this conversion ?

The 5 speed boxes are crawler first, not overdrive top.
Is this what you want?

Even if you can find a high ratio axle, the 4 speed first gear is low
enough unless you're at max. gross weight.
ISTR there was an overdrive option, but where you'ld get one now...
