So when you are all done you will have installed a:
1954 3600 3/4 ton truck's 235 engine, bell housing, 4 speed transmission and the 2 open drive shafts with carrier bearing, into a 1950 3600 3/4 ton chassis.
I see you have swapped out the 1950 rear engine cross member for the 1954 rear engine cross member. 1954 rear engine mount change "courtesy tclederman"
When using the 1954 front drive shaft, does its carrier bearing support bracket line-up with the 1950 drive shaft carrier bearing cross member?

No big hurry with the film strip request.

I have a NOS ring gear. There is no front or back to them.

I heat the ring gear with a rose bud and flip it using a pair of welding gloves. I have done this on everything from GMC trucks to John Deere tractors.

As another data point:
Does not look like my Original or the replacement ring gear on my truck.

Factory GMC shop manual: “Make sure chamfered edge of the ring gear teeth are installed toward engine side of flywheel”.

Look at the teeth on the starter drive- - - -rhee is a definite bevel there to guide the gear into the flywheel ring teeth, so a bevel on the flywheel gear is not really necessary.

When we had my truck engine (235.5 cu-in) and transmission out, my mechanic helper (with many years of operating garages) suggested removing the ring gear and flipping it around. We heated, removed and reinstalled it. This was done 8 yrs. ago, and thousands? of starts later I’ve had no problems.
