    This transmission is used in a vehicle that pushes around aircraft and is paired with an old flat head 6. On the side of the housing where 727 is normally stamped it says 844-5. On the rail above the pan on the drivers side the only numbers I can see are 2659 787L. From the face of the housing to the end of the tail shaft it only measures 28” so I know it’s not from a car. I’ve tried looking up the numbers above the pan but I’ve come up empty handed.

    It’s being rebuilt to go back into the tug. They just want to be sure they get the correct parts.

      Isn't that the rare "A" series van tail setup with the "hang from above" mount?

      Lot of stuff in there will interchange if you can figure a "year range"

        That looks like a couple of motorhome transmissions I have. Tail housings have the same upper castings.

        Numbers are worthless; who knows what somebody might have replaced in there. Might not even have the correct replacement parts in there. It's a 727; that's the only info available until you tear it apart.

        The 10,000 day calendar date on that case is 3227 which is May 29, 1970.

        When you take it apart look at the bushing inside the front clutch drum. Narrow is 62-70, wide is 71 and up.

        it has a 3 prong neutral safety/reverse lamp switch.

        Yes that looks like an A100 tailhousing.

        It's not. The A van tail shaft has an eyelet for a bushing.

          That’s right, I got it confused with the 62 Chrysler I was just working on.

          ^^When I was at Miramar, and I was a RADAR tech for operations, so didn't "hang out" in the squadrons, they had some tow pigs that were Ford powered AND HAD CHROMED MUSTANG STYLE FLOOR SHIFTERS (automatic). I was told by a friend in one of the squadrons that "one of the guys" got disciplined for abusing or breaking one "hot rodding" it. So, whaddaya 'spect, anyway?? LOLOL

          On another note, the road along "hanger row" had a bunch of diagonal parking where the officers parked, and you'd see, along with "regular" cars, 'Vetts, Porsches, Mercedes, BMW's, etc etc One day I went through there and came across some SAD faces. Several sailors had been towing a big APU of some sort, these were a tall square trailer with typical pintle hitch. The thing had come loose and the large heavy APU hand "mowed down" the rear ends of about 3 of those cars, just clipping the rears and going onto the next.
