I had the transmission rebuilt by David Kee in San Antonio. David is a well known top loader expert. I’ll look back and see it I captured any pics with the top off, prior to taking it to David. The only issues I was having was a leaking front seal and the speedometer gear on the tail shaft had failed.Super resto, I like it!
Did you rebuild the trans? Do you have a picture of the third and fourth speed synchronizer in position?
I did a rebuild of my trans a half a year ago but unfortunately, I did not take a picture of the position or in which way the third and fourth speed synchronizer was installed before disassembly. A lot of others but not this one! ☹
The FORD Shop Manual tells me the groove should facing forward, but my synchronizer has a groove/notch on each side. I’ve installed it the best way I know, but now shifting out from of the third to forth or second is a little sticky/notchy. Into third it’s no problem and smooth.
Before I disassemble the trans again and reverse the synchronizer, I’d like to make sure, that this would be the solution.
How looks your third and fourth speed synchronizer in position?
