I've got a '50 chevy 3100 with a three speed tranny - column shift.  I've 
pulled the transmission to replace the rear engine seal, etc.  Wondering if 
are seals on these old transmissions that I need to replace before putting it 
back into the truck?  The transmission shifted fine and did not leak prior to 
dropping it.  Also, there is a cork gasket that fits between the rear of the 
tranny and the universal joint torque tube.  I can't find that gasket but I 
know I can easily make one.  The one that I'm questioning is the rubber o-ring 
looking gasket that sits inside the tube up against the cover of the u-joint.  
Any suggestions on were to get one of those?  Thanks a mil.
