Re: Shoebox Overdrive Governors

Except for the early Lincoln overdrives (1940-48) all of the Ford based Borg Warner OD governors used the single terminal governor unit. I don’t know exactly what year the change occurred but they...

Re: I'm a turncoat...

The Hornet is absolutely beautiful! I own one of its later descendants (OT 73 hatchback). Your new set of wheels is just stunning.

Re: Speedo drive gear

Do you have the B-17290 thrust washer fitted in there between the roller bearing and the speedo gear?

Re: 49 wagon clutch size

They would have had the regular 9.5” clutch but 10” was optional. In either case, both had the 1” x 10 spline hub in the disc. They never came with an 11” clutch……that would have been overkill, and...

Re: 49 trans.

There’s no difference and they are totally interchangeable. The 49-50 convertibles used a special adapter for the solenoid to allow it to clear the frame but even the basic overdrive transmission is...

Re: 1933 transmission tower plunger

The plungers are hollow and their tips will wear…..sometimes all the way through. Your comment above makes me ask, what problem are you chasing that you’re hoping this question would help you resolve?

Re: 1933 transmission tower plunger

All 32-38 shifter housings used the single spring/two plungers detent system, and they’re located between the two shifter rails. The plug in the side of the housing is merely to provide an access...

Re: 1950 Ford Overdrive problem

I had one several years ago like that….. I had to take an abrasive cutoff wheel to it and cut it apart. That old Borg Warner steel is/was damn hard stuff.

Re: 1950 Ford Overdrive problem

I assume you were able to remove the outer housing by itself, with the output shaft and ring gear remaining in place at the back of the transmission. If so, normally you can simply pull it off with...

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...

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...

Re: 1933 Ford gearbox

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: 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: 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...
