Re: AA transmission in an A

Bob C

When you used the A-7085-B did you have any problems with the rear end being too far back? I have a A-7085-B and unable to locate a A-7085-E.

Thanks

Re: AA transmission in an A

I have these same parts and the entire unit is still 1" longer than the
original. Did you force the rear end and drive shaft to the rear to get the set up in?
