  1. Anyone know what transmission fluid to use in a 1939 Plymouth 3 speed O/D? the builder said he uses AMSOIL 40W DIESEL TRANS FLUID but I cant find this type of fluid.
  2. Trans builder said AMSOIL 40W DIESEL SYNTHETIC TRANSMISSION FLUID BUT I CANT SEEM TO SOURCE IT ANYWHERE????
  3. NEED A LITTLE HELP: WHAT TRANSMISSION FLUID SHOULD I USE, I PREFER HIGH END OIL LIKE LUCAS. . CAN i USE? Lucas heavy duty high performance SAE 80W-90 GEAR OIL for the trans.
  4. NEED HELP. DO THE FORKS OF THE SHIFT LINKS GO IN THE ROUND SLOTTED AREA? I believe the driver side "Reverse & 1st" has a "C" style mount into the slide area where my finger is pointing and the passenger side link "2nd & 3rd" go in the slot where my finger is pointing. anyone have info on this. hope you understand my quarantined drinking typing. 1st pic is rear 2nd picture is forward toward engine.
  5. got the engine in the car, my issue is once I got the transmission shifter in the car, I was not able to switch gears. come to find out the links that George Asche gave me were incorrect for my 1933 Dodge stick shift I have contacted the Asche family and they said they will send me other links that may work. problem is the links I have have one linke that is low and the other link stands up a couple inches which does not allow my shifter to move the left side link that controls reverse and 1st gear. If the new link's they send me do not work, I am afraid my only other option is to switch out the OD trans for the stock 3spd. after all this work, I may end up going back to the standard 3spd again and just sell the OD 39 trans. well see.
  6. your insight is always welcome so that I know what to look for in all areas. now I am fussing with the clutch linkage. cant remember how it went on and took shitty pics.
  7. well it has to be greased the 1st time at least so I will keep searching for the correct needle / fitting to grease properly.
  8. bro, this sucks. Spinney Hill used to constantly follow my build and posts and give me great info. as a young 37yr old, I didnt and still dont know much about old cars as I used to know. he would always share great info. RIP Spinney Hill, damn man. Rest In Peace
  9. what is a Needle Point Adapter? my grease fitting for my 1933 Dodge Throw out bearing needs grease and I can t find the gun to work with cone fitting. who knows what goes with this?
  10. LETS SUPPOSE: I do not want to take out the nipple due to possibly ruining the nipple, is there another hose or attachment that will work with it?
  11. IS THERE A SPECIAL GREASE GUN THAT ALLOWS YOU TO GREASE THE THROW OUT BEARING?
  12. the same way my front motor mount and rear bell housing mounts were from the start is how they are going to be when I put the engine back in. the lower cross member that goes under the tranny is the only concern but is easily fabricated. my engine and bell housing will mount to with front arms resting on frame and rear ball housing resting on the shifter cross member.
  13. from my understanding of it so far, the bell housing mounts to the cross member where the shifter and food peddles are mounted. the transmission has a rear lower cross member mount that the transmission sits on. if for some reason it is different and does not sit under the trans correctly, I may have to do some modifications. right now, my next move is to get the engine in the car and jack up the transmission to find out what has to be done to make it work. but I am praying it works smoothly.
