Saw your post on Valve Covers. I have a set for over 10 years. Missing 2 fake bolts on top. If your interested in them, I could send them. Free of course, as long as you dont turn around and sell them. Can get a couple pics of them if needed.
Also, are you close to Gresham or? Got a friend from there I was stationed with in the A.F.
Let me know
Jpar, it will be april before i can get back to this tranny. I am pretty sure i have a handle on it now. I found brass washers .059 thick, plus an extra gasket in the tailshaft ought to do it. Or i can make a thicker gasket. The main thing i learned is to get a good core that you know worked, and be sure and measure everything on disassembly, and definately record the sequence of EVERY part as you disassemble it.
