I'm replacing the front bearing with a sealed bearing so I don't soak my clutch with gear oil

shaft goes in just enough to carry the forward thrust washer
align the tang on the washer with the notch in the case and put the washer on the shaft

lower gear into case and push the shaft to the end of the gear,
grease the two thrust washers and slip them into place,
put your finger in the end of the shaft hole to align
and push the shaft the rest of the way in,
align the locating pin hole with the rear cover bolt hole

Excellent info. Great photos. I run a 37 La Salle in my roadster and always wondered what went into this swap. Would the same basic principles hold true for the 37? It looks very similar except it is a top shift box,
