Re: Anything for a cluster gear

Usable transmission? Define that. A good used case, shifter tower with the forks you want, and all gears in good condition? I’d say more like 1 in 10 odds. Of course, we’re happy to end up with...

Anything for a cluster gear

We’re currently out of the reproduction cluster gears. I had an urgent need for a good used original 28 tooth cluster gear, so today I attacked our pile of core transmissions to try to strike gold....

Re: R-10 OD Governor?

Thank you for updating the thread on the solution. This is generally one of my first pieces of advice for non-functioning overdrive issues. It’s pretty easy to do, yet people tend to focus on one of...

The clutch release arm changed between 32 and 33, but the arm could be swapped over from one to the other.

Re: mailing water pumps for rebuilding

Yeah, styrofoam peanuts are mostly only good for shipping more foam peanuts. They always allow heavy pieces to shift around in the carton. Plus they’re a mess to deal with upon opening up the...

Re: Cluster gear 022A-7113A vs 21C-7113

The 21C cluster was a short lived experiment by Ford to try out a different gear as far as metallurgy and heat treating processes. I have the factory print somewhere. I don’t know if the experiment...

Re: Borg Warner overdrive cable throw position

The lockout lever on the side of the OD housing MUST rest against the stop on the tail housing. Set it there and then slide the inner cable into the locking hardware before tightening it up. As...

Re: mailing water pumps for rebuilding

The Mercury pumps are physically pretty big and would be a tight squeeze in the USPS Medium Flat Rate carton. There’s no good room for protective padding. At the very least, try the Large flat rate...

Re: 8BA crank in 59AB?

The 59 type blocks would ordinarily already have the correct upper and lower rear seal retainers that are needed to fit the rope seals at the rear of the motor. If they are damaged or missing we now...

Re: 16/27 cluster

Yeah.... the “rule of 44” has plenty of exceptions. In your case, you have a transmission gearset from 1951-52 (open drive 3 speed pickup truck transmission). That gear tooth combination continued on...

If you need parts for this transmission we should be able to help you. Since you’re not sure if it’s a 1957 specifically, get us a little more information. Tooth count on the cluster gear, spline...

Re: Trans issue?

The two synchro rings are identical. The one on the second gear side gets the most wear. You’re using this synchro ring when you shift from 1st to 2nd......AND when you shift from 3rd back down into...

Re: R-10 OD Governor?

We still have some NOS governors if you need one. However, let me point out a couple details. First, the governor is not voltage sensitive.....in other words there is no 6 or 12 volt governor. It’s a...

Re: Flywheel ID

Pick a pair of pressure plate bolt holes and measure the distance between them (center to center). If the flywheel was drilled for the 9.5” diameter pressure plate the holes will be exactly 3.00”...

Re: 56 f100, 292, 3speed o/d rear trans mount

The transmission in your picture is the heavy duty T-85 type. They weren’t offered for the pickup trucks until the 1960’s. His 1956 F-100 would have the Ford design transmission with the optional...

Re: Best graphite thickness

BEST head gaskets compress down to about .050 to.053”. Slightly more with the copper clad type (ie perhaps another 2 or 3 thou).

Don’t forget while you’re working in this area to replace the oil pump idler cover gasket on the backside of the block. It’s not unusual for the five bolts to be a little loose too. It would leak...

Re: 1956 manual trans input shaft

Did that 272 possible come from a Ford truck? If you used the truck bell housing, which is about 1” deeper, the car transmission input shaft would probably fail to reach all the way into the clutch...
