Re: 88-A Platform Style-d3, Cross Member #5, V-Bracket

I just made my own using an eye bolt I got from McMaster-Carr. Welded the stop on it and turned it down, rusted it and it was good to go!

Re: Power Take Off

Its a 4 speed with Warford - some additional info is on the thread " Truck Progress Photos" which incidentally is long overdue for an update! Sorry, not sure how to put a link in here.

Re: Power Take Off

Mine is connected via a driveshaft to a winch on the front of my truck.

Re: Finding reverse gear and floppy gear shift

Just an update to my lack of reverse problem. Finally got some time back on the truck and took the top off the transmission. Everything was good in the gearbox so attention turned to the shift tower. Discovered that the reverse slider shaft would jam up and refuse to budge. Thought it may have been ...

Re: Wanted: Early '28 AA wheel lug nuts

Hi Brian, I just found a RH one of these when looking for somethings else! If you are still looking, it is yours for cost of postage.

Wanted - wheel lock ring

Hi, I am looking for a lock ring for a '29 spoked wheel although I think the rings were the same for all types? This is for my spare wheel but would like one in reasonable condition!

Let me know price including shipping to 85704.

Thanks

Re: Finding reverse gear and floppy gear shift

Come to think of it, I just had it idling for a few minutes when I tried it. I'll give it another shot before I pull the top off!

Thanks

Re: Finding reverse gear and floppy gear shift

Thanks Kim, yes I've come to the conclusion I'll have to take the top off it and look inside. If I had a dollar for every time I've taken the floorboards off I'd be rich! It'll have to wait a couple of weeks but I'll let you know what I find.

Re: Finding reverse gear and floppy gear shift

Hi Kim, I am pretty sure it did as it shifted into all gears on the bench. Not sure what you could get wrong assembling it anyway, as the parts can really only go in one way.

Re: Finding reverse gear and floppy gear shift

I machined up some pins and fitted them this morning and they have made a huge difference. All the gear positions are a lot easier to find and the lever movement is a lot more positive. Except that I still cannot get it to mesh in reverse. I am pretty sure I have the latch engaging OK and the gear i...

Re: Finding reverse gear and floppy gear shift

Thanks Bob - didn't even think of looking on YouTube , those videos are a big help. Someone must have modified my tower and replaced the pins with screws. I'll bore out and ream the holes oversize and make some new pins and see how that works. Would you know how long the drivers side pin should be -...

Finding reverse gear and floppy gear shift

Hi all, As described in my photo thread, I couldn't find reverse gear on my test drives. I now have the latch rod adjustment correct as per the service bulletins (it was only 1/16" off), and although it seems to be shifting the gear , I cannot get it to engage, I just get noise of gears grinding aga...

Re: SHIFT TOWER SEALS

Yes, I think it was - they were only marginally bigger bore ID than the shafts OD.
