Default Re: Pictures, part #s, instructions; rebuilding a 39 style trans.

I used to rebuild one of these every week many moons ago........I have one tip that might be helpful: when assembling the cluster gear with all the bearings, I used a wood dowel (of the correct diameter), but cut it just long enough to allow the cluster to be inserted into the case with everything in tact. I used wheel bearing grease to retain the bearings. Then you can insert the thrust washers and push the steel rod for the whole thing through the case without having ti worry about the bearings falling out.
