Re: Replacement driveshaft

I haven't took it out of O.D. since I installed it, from what I've read some say theirs lugs or lacks power, mine pulls good so I'm ok. I'm not totally satisfied with the mount I made so I'm planning...

Re: Replacement driveshaft

I got the overdrive transmission installed today, everything went well. I had to make clearance for the solenoid but not much, I also had to weld a extension on the mount. My trans is a 51 which uses...

Re: Replacement driveshaft

Thanks, I remember you posted that earlier. These came along before my time, my first transmission repair was a Muncie four speed, I broke several in my younger years.

Re: Replacement driveshaft

The 53 trans is 1.5" longer than the 50, I didn't want to cut my driveshaft in case I wanted to go back to the stock unit. From what I've learned here and from the local flat head era guys the...

Re: Replacement driveshaft

Thanks again for all the info, here's the side cover of the one I have, my stock unit has a stand off below and to the back of the 1/reverse lever for clutch hardware mounting.

Re: Replacement driveshaft

Re: Replacement driveshaft

No go on the transmissions that my friend has, both are Mercury's. The 50 has the bell housing made to the case, the other is a 53 that's just like the one I have, the search continues.

Re: Replacement driveshaft

I think what I have is the light duty truck trans, it is a 53. It doesn't have the clutch linkage stand off on the side cover like my transmission does. A friend picked up a couple of flatheads...

Re: Replacement driveshaft

Here's one last picture of the tail shaft housing with I.d. numbers, I'm searching the web for info. If some knows what I have please post it. I had to save the image then rotate it before posting it.

Re: Replacement driveshaft

Through a little searching I found this is not a truck transmission, this has the slip yoke tail shaft. What I've read the truck tail shaft had a yoke mounted on the output. I'll hit the salvage...

Re: Replacement driveshaft

Question, were truck transmissions longer? A friend picked it up in a lot of parts, was marked with a paint pen 53 Ford, didn't say car or truck. Franks post has me wondering,

Re: Replacement driveshaft

The overdrive transmission is a inch and a half longer than the standard trans, I've had driveshafts cut before but I want to keep the original in case I ever need to go back to the stock set up. The...
