1946 Chevy pu 3/4 TON

Recommended Posts

I HAVE A 1946 Chevy 3/4 pu  with a 4 speed tranny in  it

WILL THIS TRANY BE A SYNCHRONISED TRANNY OR how can  I tell for sure ?

 Tranny is still in the truck and the motor is stuck.

If the trany is a SYNCHRONISED I would get it out and put it my 1939  Chevy  pu.

With old age and heart troubles I think I would like the SYNCHRONISED tranny better and my grandson has no idea how to double clutch!

The four speed is a "crash box", with no synchromesh  and straight cut gears.Only the three speed was synchronized. I used to have a one ton pickup the same year. It was a well balanced truck (literally) seen here on a teeter totter.

I don't have the answer to that.I think 1938-47 will interchange,but '48 on is different.Hopefully someone else on here can clarify that or try the Stovebolt forum.
