Re: Rebuilt '39 Transmission quiz. How many issues can you find?

Cluster gear is there, can’t get a good picture of it. Everything moves fine, just needs to be redone to make sure all is within specs and should be a good working transmission.

Re: Rebuilt '39 Transmission quiz. How many issues can you find?

Looking from the pics on the Van Pelt book it's upside down, help me out if that's incorrect. Walked by it a dozen times before I realized that's not a 1937-41 rear mount.

Re: Rebuilt '39 Transmission quiz. How many issues can you find?

No, it's the double detent style but no 3'" fork in the gear box. 1937 and 1938 style I think.

And he used the later plate I sent him as a help. Those turned out perfect and it was great that you made more for other’s to use on their projects. And remember not just “Gary” but GaryU.
