Re: Difficulty shifting a 39 Trans

Lots of questions and little background given in your post. Which tower did you attempt to use? Which shift forks are in that tower? Which shifter lever are you using? Are you 100% sure you have the...

Re: timng gear from a camshaft

I assume that your request was for the timing gear on the camshaft. For 1935-38 cams that gear was pressed onto the camshaft. Those were fiber gears with a steel center bore. There’s a small notch on...

Re: Tranny info and test?

Ahh......the hopes and dreams of the transmission novice. Stop and think about just this for a moment. To install or remove the early Ford transmission is quite a project, with the torque tube...

Shifter tower blues

We go through this with every transmission shifter housing and every core shifter housing that comes through our shop. Each one is oven baked and media blasted to clean away all the grease, oil,...

Re: 35 transmission

Look through the identification details from our website. You should be able to confirm what you have there. Remember that anyone coming have swapped gears, cases, or shifter towers on this...

Re: Who's removed the governor on a BW overdrive?

We have a limited supply of NOS overdrive governors.....all without the driving gear (which can be swapped over if your existing gear is in good condition).

Re: The Defiant One.....at the transmission shop

Well I highly doubt it. Every gear and shaft was severely rusted and pitted. Nothing would move. We’d sprayed it thoroughly with PB Blaster but nothing budged after several days. We still thought...

Re: Need help Identifying Make of Overdrive

It’s definitely a Borg Warner made R-10 overdrive unit......modified to fit into an early Ford closed driveline. There was a man in the Columbus, Ohio area who made these for model A’s and early V8’s...

The Defiant One.....at the transmission shop

We had one of the most rusted stubborn transmissions ever to grace our shop. This toploader was so dry and stuck that nothing would move or rotate. Many blows with a punch and the BFH would not budge...

Re: '39 LZ transmission case- Any better?

Tim, the 38-39 LZ cases are no stronger than the regular Ford cases. The main advantage to them is their shorter throws on the shift movement, plus the location of the shifter lever positions it...

Re: Name that bellhousing

I’m pretty sure we have one of those bell housings in our core pile at the shop. I’d have to look to see if it has the inspection cover with it. If you’re still hunting this up let me know and I’ll...

Re: need my transmission rebuilt

There was a transmission repair booklet by Max Navarro .......I am not him. Not sure if you had me confused with him or simply misspelled my name. So, thanks I think. :)

Re: need my transmission rebuilt

This is a good time to talk about the transmission rebuild business. I’ve had this discussion in bits and pieces with other car owners over the years, but it bears a complete talk. I wrote my repair...

Re: Vacuum Line Messed up

Once the special nut has been tightened down, it clamps itself around the tubing. It’ll rotate (to be able to tighten or loosen) but won’t pull off the tubing. We stock the nut (p/n 351112-S). You...

Re: 1939 Ford Transmission DON'T......

We’ve seen worse.....much worse. I wouldn’t lose a lot of sleep over the small flaw in your cluster gear. Maybe dress the edges of it to reduce the chances of it breaking away.

Re: BB clutch

We have the BB type pressure plates in stock. You would use the regular 9” clutch disc with it.

Re: Newer Overdrive in a 50 Ford?

Ford changed the input shaft from 10 splines to 23 splines in 1958 so the clutch disc would need to be changed. The 1959 overdrive transmission is almost certainly the T-86 top loader trans which...

Re: Leaking transmission 47 monarch

The retaining pins on the two shifter levers were swedged in by Ford and are typically very difficult to remove. This job is best accomplished by putting the housing in a sturdy vice, grinding off...

Re: R10 pawl and blocker ring

The “blocker ring “ you referred to will allow the pawl to slide into one of the six slots in the balk gear when things are aligned for that to happen. The ring itself has to have a bit a tension...

The socket extractor tool should do the trick. Tap it tightly onto the old bolt head before attempting to turn it. Those things work a wonder. Looks like your old bolt still has plenty of meat left...
