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

It doesn't get real fun till you get into the 4-speed overdrives and the 5-speed overdrives. All the old Ford ones are pretty similar until the T86 top loaders came out. The 4-speeds just added another gear to a 3-speed design in the early ones. The T-10 was a lot like the older T85 except you could get a T-85 with an R11 overdrive. Those were the precursor to the T-10 and could take a lot of torque. The T85 R11N can take a 390 in front and work pretty well.
