Ok, moved the oil discussion to here: https://www.stovebolt.com/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/topics/1438297.html#Post1438297

Going to move on and changed out the front bearing in the transmission.

Just to confirm, I have decent looking synchro's for first gear, but they aren't brass. I was told to just leave these in place since 1st is rarely used:

Also, I just noticed the chatter on these gears, is it a big deal?

If you're talking about the sawtooth pattern between the gear clutch teeth and the synchronizer, I believe that's normal. Everything else looks good to me.

Sorry, to clarify, these are the original brass synchro's and I have a spare trans that has a donor set in great shape, but those are not brass. I was told I should keep the original brass regardless.

For the 2nd synchro, I was referring to what I circled here, is this supposed to look like that?

Finally, I tore into the trans tonight and the replacement bearings for the front have the correct dimensions, but less bearings in them. Is this a problem?

Yes, that's what I thought you were referring to (what you circled). I think it' a remnant of the machining of the gear, and nothing to worry about.

I was concerned because it doesn't have a consistant pattern like a machine would leave. I'm going to check my spare...

Spare trans does not have the chatter marks:

Are you able to get the chip collected at the bottom of the transmission out to see if there are any chips trapped in it .photo from Denny Graham site.

Still cleaning, but found this in the bottom:

Also missing a key?

Haven't found it yet, feels like this is a pretty crucial part...

Think I've got a plan now. Basically, front half of the gear/shaft assembly from newer donor trans and original to the rear. Got to clean it all up, paint and reassemble. I will have some questions on the gaskets shortly...

Kid got me sidetracked with his project:
[img]https://www.stovebolt.com/ubbthread...umber/39056/filename/20220125_172402.jpg[/img]

In the meantime, starting to plan for fender reassembly. I know not everyone has the center mount under the rad, but mine is about 1-5/16" unbolted:

This is a new piece, it used to have about 5/8" of steel wedged in there. I'm assuming everything is going to align completely different now, than it did previously. I was thinking about starting with the hood alignment that"s in the tech articles first, then piecing it all together loosely until by some magic I can close and latch it. Make sense?
