Re: Rebuilt '39 Transmission quiz. How many issues can you find?

Cluster gear is there, can’t get a good picture of it. Everything moves fine, just needs to be redone to make sure all is within specs and should be a good working transmission.

Re: Rebuilt '39 Transmission quiz. How many issues can you find?
