The winter project plan this year was to pull the column shift 3 speed and replace with a ‘39 style gearbox. Despite the transmission being rebuilt 7 years ago (prior to me owning the car), it’s absolutely shot. 1st/reverse missing teeth, cluster gear chipped, and there’s about 3/8 of an inch of endplay in the main shaft and cluster. Last week I had noticed when I had rolled the torque tube/rear from the vehicle that the driveshaft was stuck in the universal joint. Are these driveshafts meant to be secured at the rear or is it normal to have this happen? I removed the shaft from the universal, slid it back into the rear and all seemed ok but I wanted to be sure before I put all this back together. Also: -What are you guys running as far as far as gear oil? I know a lot of guys are using Miller’s GL1 but a lot of people say any GL4 oil is also okay. -Anyone using Bob Drake repop universal joints? I usually stay away from this kinda stuff in such critical areas. That’s what has been in the car for the last 7 years and seems okay. Thanks!!!! Sent from my iPhone using H.A.M.B.
