Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: Muncie transmission
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Neil Dorey on Monday, May 05, 2014 - 10:52 pm:

I just got a really nice Muncie, looks great inside, but someone cut the stick off and it must have been exposed to the weather as the stick mount and the ball are badly rusted and pitted. I thought I would just weld a new stick on, maybe JB weld on the ball and reshape it to a smooth ball again. But thought I might try here and see if anybody has one. There was a post on here(I think) by Tom Tuominen who had a broken Muncie case. Is he still here and or does anybody know him? I would like to contact him to see if he has the stick and if he would be interested in selling it.
Any help much appreciated.
Neil

Neil, I'm just across the border in Ferndale and have a couple Muncies that are available. Send me a PM Steve

You can go to a craft shop and get a round wooden ball. drill and tap a proper hole and then screw a bolt in the hole. Shake up a can of black paint and dip the ball in the paint. Hang it up-side -down and let it dry for a while. Then turn it right-side-up and put in in the jaws of your vise. Keep alternating this to keep the paint from forming a hump at the top of the ball.

After about a week or so screw the ball on the shifter stick. Se mine on #22 below. It cost me 50 cents.

I think he was referring to the metal ball below the shift lever, not the top Frank. Don't think wood would hold up in his situation ;)

Neil. When I had my failure, I purchased a Muncie from John Danuser. I just swapped out the internals. I don't remember if there was a shift lever on the one that John sold me. When I get home tonight, I will look.

Neil,
While you're at it, if you don't already have them you should be looking for the Muncie U-Joint you'll need for the front of it and the coupler you'll need for the rear of it.

Thanks for all your replies, looks like Steve may have what I need. Going to see him next Weds.
he is sure he has a stick and he might have the coupler and a U-Joint. Here is a shot of my old stick, pitted pretty bad locating pin almost gone.

I also have a question about the oil to use for these, they have bronze bushings and ball bearings.
Anybody know what oil these are suppose to run, or what oil those who a running one of these are using.

Neil,
Don't throw those parts away. Someday they may be used as a pattern, or even repaired.

I will keep it, along with other pieces I have collected over the years. Its funny how things like that come in handy, once seen a rusted truck hood turn into a fender skirt for a custom Merc.

Neil, I found the shift lever with the ball. Sent me a PM with your address and the lever is yours if you still want it.
