I recently acquired a really good condition ribcase tranny from Jay F
and he had no idea of it's condition.
So today after cleaning up my downed tree from Friday's mini tornado or
what ever blew through Toms River and turned it into a war zone, I
checked out the tranny.
Initially I discovered the layshaft was not there and the laygear was on
the bottom of the case.
I had a good layshaft so I pulled the tranny apart found the laygear
thrust washers in the case, also the shifter lock out balls in the case.
After 4 or 5 times R&Ring the guts, I finally had it right, or so I thought.
It shifts fine but the gears do not move. No neutral, or any gears,
nothing spins but it all did until I put it all together.
Why is it I can take these things apart but they NEVER go back together
I used 3 different manuals, Autopress, Bentley, and Haynes. It is
Now I have 13 dead transmission many with good gears and synchros with
in spec but not one of them works.
I would really like to get 1 or 2 in working order for future project
cars and or spares for current drivers.
Anybody know trannys other than Paul, I hate bugging him every time I
ruin another gearbox ;)
