My apologies because I think I asked about this before but it was a few years ago. I need to get my transmission rebuilt. I am gathering the parts from Bob's. He still has to make some more pins before I get my parts. I live in VA and I'm looking for a shop. Who do you guys recommend? My post Gettin...

Once again Ashley helped me out. She pointed out that I didn't need to buy a service that I thought I needed. She also knew what I needed by my describing what I was doing. Ashley knows her stuff. Thanks again.

Re: Getting Rattles Back On The Road

Thanks John. In looking at the cylinders I can still see the cross hatch scratches on some. Then again who knows. I'm just glad that it was rebuilt at some point. You sometimes never know until you open it up. Ha!!

Need 1926 Trans band fabric

Does anyone have a set of Scandinavian bands they would like to sell? I spoke with Bob's and he said that none of the vendors have them and I should check on eBay. I looked. Lots of people selling improved car bands but they seem to be missing the brake band.

Re: Getting Rattles Back On The Road

Good Idea Scott. Want to make sure I got this right. Are you saying use the black sealant on the cover then add the gasket and put it gasket side down and add some weight. let sit for 10 min? then put grease on the side of the block, more black sealant on the gasket put it on and let it seal.

Carson, Please keep playing around with mechanical things. You have no idea how much you will learn about how to figure out things on your own. You will give yourself confidence to work on anything.

Re: Getting Rattles Back On The Road

Well I answered my own question. In looking at the bendix there is a metal ring that is supposed to be attached to the gear that runs up and down the shaft. It is attached on a part of the gear with a V detent. It broke off from there. Happy to know where parts come from when they break.

So now I can see two issues that I had known about . First the Mag Ring is the wrong year. That explains why my starter wouldn't come out.

Then I saw that one of the pins was broken on this triple gear. I hope that's the only issue..

Dallas!!! I think you hit it right on the head. Nope I did not detach the rod. That must be it. I'll hit it again tomorrow. So the pin I was talking about is meant to stay in place unless you are removing the U joint.
