Oh....I was hoping you were going to rebuild some of it yourself. The trans looks simple in my book. Still cool to see pics though.

What kind of Krylon are you using?

That looks like a freakin blast! Keep us updated in detail.

Krylon??? I have some leftover house paint that I was gonna use. I might splurge for a new brush though.

Bryan, I'm not the most mechanically inclined person around. And the tranny ended up being relatively inexpensive. Once the shop got it all cleaned they said the innards were in pretty good shape, and recommended not replacing anything besides the seal.

You are lucky. I think my syncronizers (sp?) are worn. If I ever pull it, it will get them new as well as the bushings and seals. The bushings and seals are not that expensive. No clue on the syncronizers. They used the same trans (as mine) until the early 60s so parts should be available.

I have never been inside a manual trans.....

I am semi-mechanically inclined. More to the point...I can't afford to pay someone else, so I started learning and buying tools at age 14. LOL

Yeah, but the parts you've got there, are still worth something!

You can do it. Alot easier than an automatic. I had a 47 Mercury sedan that I broke the first and reverse cluster in it. I rebuilt it myself with no problems at all. I have also done a few truck 4 speeds.
