Re: Muncie tt transmission

Hi DanDy, The Muncies are pretty easy to work on, near identical to an old 3 spd. The pocket, thrust & counter shaft run bronze bushings & the lower shafts are the same size as old truck 4 spd.

Re: Starting Problem

Hi Robert,
Steve & John are correct. May I put in my two cents? If you have a infrared thermometer use it so you don't end up with a nut tattoo on one or more fingers. And Google how to ( voltage drop ) test a starter circuit you will find it a more accurate method. Good luck

Re: IR Thermometer Readings on head and radiator

First I would check the IR thermometer, 354 degrees is past seizure temp.last I knew water boiled @ 212 degrees @ sea level. Go out to your modern vehicle & check it, if you are seeing 354 degrees @ the top of the radiator when @ operating temp. there is the problem. Try testing your motometer in bo...
