    Thanks guys. We figured it to have an overdrive, but wasn't sure of its make.

    Hard to tell but I also think it is a Packard.

    Really old and rusty looking make it harder to ID

    Someone from Ohio PMed me about purchasing this trans a while back. Lost your PM. Owner wants to sell it.

    48ish Packard if I remember correctly.

    The Packard mark is the sideshift stuff with big levers dangling from the top cover.
    Now...what kind? There are two flavors, large and reallydamnlarge. Pick it up...you can tell which it is by the number of days your back hurts afterwards.

    packart, they had two versions of the Od, I don' know if yours is the heavy duty one. short , strong, has a synchro on first gear and has the through out bearing. you can use a gm 11 " clutch disc. the drive shaft is unique the last one I used I cut and welded the yoke, you need a 2 piece drive shaft probably from a 4 X 4 truck earlier top shifts can be adapted. Somewhere in the 50'sd there was a magazine article about adapting a truck top shifter, I want to put a top shifter on the one in my roadster. I adapted a hurst conversion but It doesn't work as good as I would like.

    The OD type will I think determine if small or large Packard...most BW's on normal size cars got an R10, huge or powerful cars got an R11, Those numbers are usually cast in big letters on the case.
