Thanks for the info. I have a few questions on the transmission. Its a 3 speed, on the floor, not syncromesh. First, I noticed that unless I'm starting from a dead stop going uphill, there is no reason to use 1st gear. I start in 2nd and she just moves right out. No riding the clutch, no bucking, no engine rattles, nothing. And the gearing for 1st gear is awfully low (or high??) so in 1st, as soon as the car is moving, its time to shift. So, I start it in 2nd. Any comments? Second, when starting from a dead stop, the gears will gring every OTHER time I put it in first. Not a bad grind but in's noticable. Also, if it grinds going into first, I get a grind going into second. Again, not bad but you can hear it. But, this only happens every OTHER time. If it grinds once, then the next time I go to put it in first, no problems. Or second. But sure enough, the time after that I get the grinding. So, I ran down my checklist. The clutch is new and installed properly. No chatter, slipping or grabbing. I checked the clutch pedal and that looks fine also. The linkage is hooked up correctly and according to the owners manual, I should have 1 inch of play when depressing the clutch before I feel resistance. Sure enough, that's exactly what I have. Third, problem with the transmission? Nope, when I had the engine rebuilt, I checked the transmission and it was fine. So I checked the transmission fluid level. Its fine. Which leaves me with option 5: hey, the car's over 80 years old-its allowed to be a bit cranky once in a while! Any comments/thoughts? Thanks again.
