Hello , my 1941 Oldsmobile serie 68 drops out of second gear downhills.

Any idea what to do?

I would check the shifting linkage for excessive wear/looseness first.

Not familiar with the '41, but have had that problem surface when the synchronizer goes bad.

Thanks to you both , 

 

I will have a chech at  the linkage , and also look at the 2 synchronizer , I changed the 2 main bearing some 5 years ago, that also helped for a while.

 

Thanks.
