Hi Ken,
I highly recommend replacing the ball joint seals while you have it apart.
A gasket kit is available from the Filling Station (
www.fillingstation.com ) and others.  Just put one in a '54 last week.

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
back into the truck?  The transmission shifted fine and did not leak prior
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
looking gasket that sits inside the tube up against the cover of the
Any suggestions on were to get one of those?  Thanks a mil.
