Default Re: 47 pickup second gear pops out

My fix begins with rebushing 2nd gear and fitting the new bushing to the output shaft.
It does require a nice lathe and a top quality bronze bushing. I go for .0015 clearance and run the rebushed 2nd gear in at 1200 rpm. After that little exercise I do what I have to do to get .006 linear clearance between 2nd gear and it's thrust plates. On the later gear sets there is only the front thrust plate so that makes it just that much more fun. Gotta install new syncros........but be real cautious most available
are off spec....only reliable source is VanPelt or NOS Ford at swap meets....everybody
remember swap meets ?
