I searched the forum but coult not fine a topic about my problem: On my special 40, shifting in reverse, first and second is smooth. But when comes time to shift in third, it engages making the gear on gear noise most of the time. once engaged, it goes perfect. Any Idea what could be the problem ? Thanks.

What gear oil are you using? Is it full?

 

I swtiched to Masterpro GL4 Gear Oil from O'Reilly's Auto Parts in my 1937 Transmission. With thinner oils, my 1937 transmission had some undesirable noises.
