Would a 25 transmission be the same as a 26 except for the brake drum being wider? My 26 broke a triple gear pin yesterday and i have a rebuilt 25 sitting here, so could i just change the drums and keep going?.
Your 26 hogs head brake shaft is in a different place than a 25.
Dave, i am going to put the 26 drum on the other transmission, will it work.
Pretty sure time driving plate for the '25 will not fit the '26 drum so that won't work.
Dang spell check. Meant to post 'the driving plate'.
But if you took the brake drum and driven/driving plate from the 26 trans as a set it should work. Worth trying.
Walt, that is exactly what i am trying to do everything is OK except the triple gear, i was going to take pictures but my batteries died.
Ive heard the 26 drum will hit the earlier pan. Can't say for sure, but I've heard it.
Use your 26 brake drum and drive plate and you will be fine. I would use the 25 sun gear on the 26 brake drum.
my 26 coupe is the car with the problem so it should be OK.Thanks for the discussion.
Rick, the clutch parts and the Hogs head are also different. Look at your Parts book.
