[TR] TR3 Gear Ratios

Here what the Bentley's manual has:
		Gearbox Overall
Top w/OD	0.82		3.03
Fourth 	1.00 	3.70
Third 	1.325 	4.90
Second 	2.00 	7.40
First 	3.38 	12.50
Reverse 	4.28 	15.80 

I suspect that the 'Overall' number is dictated by the diff ratio, either
3.7 or 4.1 W/OD installed

Anybody out there know what the gear ratios for a TR3 were?

Considering a T5 swap (over the Toyota) and want to insure that the
performance is close (or improved).

Also - anybody want to weigh in on a rack and pinion conversion?  The kits
seem a bit overpriced, and I'm pretty handy, so I'm curious as to what
others have done.

Just sold my big healey and want to make my TR3 into a more comfortable
touring car.
