Differences in early and later Fluid Drive transmissions

Recommended Posts

Do any of you  gents know if a 1946 Dodge Fluid Drive differs from a 1951?  My original 51 from my D24 has a broken off ear flange so I am attempting to use one I had stored from a 46. Catching reverse seems to be a real problem. I have adjusted the shifter rod in and out a dozen times. I just get forward gears.  I'm considering that the two different transmissions operated differently despite looking identical.  

               Also, thinking about taking a risk and using the original 51 trans with only the three , not four, bolts to the bell housing.

        I would really any and all ideas. Thank you!
