29 four speed

Post by s147881 » January 16th, 2019, 5:54 pm

I have a 1929 four speed transmission that has a universal joint mounted to the back that the intermediate shaft goes into. Is this the original setup? My 30 has a gear on the back that goes into the intermediate shaft.

It could have been connected to a Warford in which case it would have a U Joint.

If the u-joint looks like the one in the picture the transmission came out of a 1930-31 truck with a service replacement coupling shaft.
Can you post a picture of what you have?

Interesting, I don't think I have ever seen a bearing retainer like that. The u-joint is the one in the picture above
for the service replacement coupling shaft.
