Oops! I thought I covered all the possibilities in my summary, but
prefix 726 is for a 8.75:1 compression engine for a 4-speed/OD MkIa 3 litre.
The other MkIa's that I left out were:
725 for 8.75:1 4-spd without OD
727 for 7.5:1 without OD and,
728 for 7.5:1 with OD
A 8.75:1 engine and the 4-speed/OD should be a nice combination -- I'm
intending to replace the 8.0:1 engine and automatic gearbox in my MkII
with the same setup.
