Re: Warford Assembly

Nick C, Thank You very much, you've solved the last riddle I had with my Warford! The thrust washer you mention will be the exact cause of my confusion when setting up the end play etc. in my transmission. The unfortunate thing for me is I now have the Warford in my truck and running and am relying ...

Have now managed to complete and install A Warford into my truck and could not be happier! can get along comfortably at 30-35 mph now which is perfect for around town here and am loving getting the hang of shifting between two transmissions. A great deal of fun! thanks for all of the helpful advice!
