    Yep. The transaxle is finished. It needed a bunch of parts…the old core was in pretty rough shape. We were only able to re-use 3rd gear. It has an original German 4.12 ring and pinion with 0.88 4th gear now. Β Being a strait axle conversion, it should get down the highway at 70mph or so.

    Diff preloaded .010”, and shimmed pinion depth to get a good contact pattern.

    Throw some axle tubes on and it’s ready for Jones whenever he is.

    Awesome!Β  Thanks for the update Franz!!!Β  It’s soo cool to see the insides of the trans and a post from a trans builder..!!Β  😎  I wish I could have gotten Painters grinding on here about 15 years ago…Β  😎  I bet you have the trans builds down now!!! 😎  and the tools to do it right.

    I’m gonna paint the steering box this morning.Β  Also round up everything I can find for the front end so you can assemble it..Β  I can’t find the main steering shaft..Β  Is there a possibility you remember where you put it? or maybe have it in your box or something?Β  😎  Silver beige? 😎

    Yes, silver beige on the steering box column, it should match the steering wheel and turn signal switch. Black knee knocker. Does Tom have a good horn button?

    Did you find Tom a nice thin-lip parcel tray? We don’t want you to waste time welding and bondo’ing that rusty one.

    The steering shaft is probably with the beam parts, or between the garage doors, or maybe behind your solvent tank…The small parts & hardware are in a paint cup under the lid of the parts washer.
