Luke, your enthusiasm is totally addictive!!! (Now I won't sleep tonight thinking about clearance specs, roller vs flat...........) </div></div>

Not sure about enthusiasm, I just live the nightmare, haha... 12 months into my engine build, and a few more to go... when I started, I figured worst case it would have been dyno'd in 2015. Not so much. (EDIT: should add that BTR isn't doing mine, I went more local so I could drop in from time to time) looking forward to that torque curve!!!

Dean is a great guy. Goes above and beyond every time.
Very helpful and I have now bought parts a few times of good quality:-)

We have talked several times, he is like a celebrity to me!! (The PSMCDR guys are salt of the earth, with a few salty dogs in the mix:-)

I talked to them before I changed out my ignition and installed my rebuilt original qjet for timing and tuning advice. Great guys and very friendly.

A little back and forth between Nick and I:-)

Me: Did &quot;we&quot; get the Italian gears?

If so, how much?

Nick:

&quot;I actually did. I found a new set of Italian made gears for $XXX including shipping. It was a close out New Year’s special, last set he had. I also scored the tail housing and a pair of Torque lock sliders. I emailed a shop in Wisconsin who may have the bolt on type shifter shafts. I am still looking for the bolt type reverse shaft.

I took all of the drive gears off the main shaft today. There are supposed to be 4 “tension” springs on the 2 slider hubs that keep the 3 “keys” in place and push the synchros forward on each shift. As you know the synchros “speed” up the next gear to be shifted which makes it smooth and reduces the possibility of grinding the gears. Well, your trans had no tension springs at all. I was going to replace them with the heavy duty type anyway but this is very odd. No worries, all will be taken care of as I have several sets of those springs. Pictures will be coming tomorrow. Had to go to the dentist this afternoon.

Nick &quot;

Me:
Wow, you are on fire!!

I took the springs before sending it to you as a test:-) (kidding)

An inexperienced guy could &quot;rebuild&quot; that POS Trans putting every single part back as it came apart and waste all the time and money just like that, missing parts, welded chunks, Frankenstein would be proud:-)

Dentist give you a good drilling and filling?

I visited Sam after work, what fun!!

We checked out a few W-Machines, especially his 69 W-30 it has boxed lowers sway bar and trailing arms:-)

I picked up a set of 14 X 6 steel wheels and three dinged up 67-69 dog dish caps:-)

We looked especially at fuel pumps and alternators, he has all the part numbers memorized:-)

Thanks Sam!!

More transmission info:-)

&quot;LOL, the dentist did a good painless cleaning. I agree with you regarding putting something back together as it came apart with pieces missing. The most common deletion is a cluster shim. I have found them many times stuck to the bottom magnet. They are tricky to get in place and a real pain if you use too much grease on the cluster bearings. The transmissions where I found the shims on the case bottom require a main case change as the cluster, without a .146 shim on one end, walks and grinds away the case. Not pretty.

Spent a little time in the garage last night, heater works:-) bins are preped for small parts:-) but....

I am already hurting for space and the single bare bulb is wholly inadequate:-(

Step by step:-)

I have to make shelves high on one side of the garage for totes and parts like driveshaft for example otherwise I am not going to accomplish anything:-(

Time to do a few chores around the house, then take off my apron and measure up for shelves to see what lumber is needed:-)

I also hope to take the exhaust to the igloo (again to make room to move.)

Ryan

The one thing I did get done was mop up the oil that spilled out of the M22, (rookie here stored it for a few days with the tail down) the oil pooled around all kinds of wheeled carts, etc, took an hour to soak it up:-(

Learning every single day:-)
