Simon, I believe the U means a floor shift rather than a column shift.

It is 29D/RU/H4908
29 = 3,000cc (+/-!)
D = MkI BT7 or BN7 (per Clausager)
R= Overdrive fitted
U = Centre shift (per BMC parts manual)
The BMC manual is quite specific. See attached.
Who is wrong? Did 29D engines continue into later tricarbs which is when, as
I understand it, centre shifts appeared?
I am considering buying an engine and rebuilding it. There's a block on eBay
with that number on its plate. I think it's a MkI and that RU stands for
overdrive and that U does not stand for centre shift.
Am I right?
