Sm420 Muncie 4 speed transmission
I could use that!
If I wasn't getting ready to leave for Vegas I would probably snag that.
I can snag it for you Fesser, let me know.
Such a good deal. Its also one of the later ones because it has the extra ribbing. Not the last year with the reverse light switch though. If that was round here it would be in my parts pile for sure.
Very nice of you to offer, but my past experience with Vegas makes me believe that I won't be coming home with any spending money.
Waiting to hear if he will ship it.
For the price its just about worth it. If I needed it I would have tried the same thing . Good Luck!
He got back to me and getting a quote from Fastenal, but he also said that 1st is a little worn. Waiting to hear what he means by worn.
I never use 1st for any reason. I guess you might want it to work, but how do you wear it out? Seriously?
It may have been originally installed on a heavy GM work truck. Or someone didn't understand that it takes a little finesse to get it into 1st gear. Kind of unusual that it be worn out, but we will see what he means, he is sending pictures of the gears. It look nice, we'll see.
I can go check it out if it helps, it's really close to me. Not sure how you wear out granny gear, I only use mine off road crawling around.
He said he would post new pictures in the CL post showing the inside and gears. He has and besides some pitting, its not horrible. I wonder if he ever even drove this tranny ?? He may be just thinking the wear is from use.
just looked at the pics. Just buy it. Its like new inside. If this thing was within 100 miles of me it would be in my basement. Its better than the one in my jeep now.
I would swap the one in my jeep with this one.
My guess is that the 2nd gear synchronizer ring is worn out. The SM420 in my 55 chevy is from a 64 chevy and those used aluminum rings instead of brass. I was lucky to find another 1st gear with a brass ring on ebay.
