It's a 71 with a T shifter and believe it has the 44 front end, not the 30 but I'm not sure how to tell. Could it be the reason they synchronizers are bad? But since it's actually mounted inside the adapter housing, that's what many of us call it. The N40001 and Q80001 thing has me totally confused! I'm basing the front end on what I was told. As a reputable dealer with over 20 years in the business, we want to make every possible assurance that buying a Fast Lane car is the only way to invest in a vintage vehicle.

The more technical way of installing the twinstick is to remove the shift pill which you must remove the gears to do. I do mine every 25k miles. Would it be considered a transmission part or transfer case part? Those bearings are the only different parts in the kits. Closer view of the upper assembly. That would have been about Jan '72.
Mine is a 10 year old Wild Horses twin but I wouldn't trade it for anything. This will protect your transmission, and provide the packaging for the return shipment. I'm basing the front end on what I was told. With a '71 you should be good with the T style kit unless someone has done some parts swapping previously. Not all items are listed so be sure to check with us if you don't see it online. .
You will have to place wood cross braces and supports inside to handle these longer transmissions, including the overdrive types. Could be worth it I'd think. I'll ship them anywhere at your cost. This works pretty well for a single lever control. I've heard the Luk clutches are good.
Put a little light grease on the spud and drop the bearing on. Anyone know of an article that's handy? I had to leave the bell housing attached because I couldnt get the whole assembly wiggled out. This involves grinding material off the rails to allow a greater range of motion at the interlock rod contact point. Just take the four bolts that hole the transmission to it off and pull it rearward enough to clear the bearing retainer about 6 inches. Anyone know where I can get the whole assembly? Will napa or similar parts store carry it in the event what I receive is incorrect? What adverse affects could not having this plug in place cause? As Viper was saying, it can be done with a jack while the transmission and transfer case are still bolted together.
Most importantly is there a tech article on this sight or other sight that will spell out how to rebuild the thing? There's one in their catalog. They are a very common bearing. You can use front drive only in either range or rear drive only in either range. The stock shifter only uses one lever to move two shift rails. We have developed a crate design that works well for the early Ford 3 speed transmissions up through 1948. We have included information on how to identify individual transmissions, application information, model year, detailed kit and part availability by transmission type. This is what I started with, the venerable T-18.
Heath Ok, Disregard my prior post. The book is just their application guide. At the worst, you're only out a few dollars in lube and a little of your time. Seems more appropriate, but we might as well know all the possible names, to help in the search, when it comes time to order one. Here is the input shaft side of the tranny. Once you do get some kind of documentation that is.
This works for the other D20 bearings too. I have a 71 with a 302 and manual three speed transmission. The balance including return shipping cost will be assessed on completion of the work. Only for informational reasons and possible trivial pursuit games; There were three 3 spd versions. Hopefully this week I'll have time to attempt to get it all back together. Do they have a web sight? What we will offer, in all fairness, is our assistance in helping you return your vehicle to its purchased condition.
I started to pull the transmission today and I've run into a million snags so it's not quite out. Looks like the rebuild is inevitable. Sounds like a possible change-over number going from the T-shift to the J-shift models. Free to someone on this forum that will use them, not sell for profit. With the T-shift you have a couple install options depending on how you want the shifter to work.
A transmission jack is priceless in this situation! A peanut butter, tar like substance came oozing out! Even at my limited skill level If someone else spells it out and takes a picture I'm usually successful. Do they have a web sight? We normally allow about 4 weeks for a repair job, although it can take longer if a particular part must be located from outside of our parts stock. It'll have a number and manufacturer stamped on it. I'm not sure the other didn't exist simultaneously, but I hadn't heard the term until just a few years ago. This time I opted for the twin but left it all connected internally. It can do this because the tcase has two interlock rods between the shift rails that only allow the rear shift rail to engage a range high or low before the front shift rail can go into that range.
