Pack,The only thing I know about them is what my father told me.I have a 54 f-100.My father had a 54 ford car overdrive that he gave me that I was and still might put in my 54.When he gave it to me I told him I would just probably keep it in overdrive all the time because of the 3.92 in the truck rear end.He told me, no you want.He said the carrier that holds the planetary gears were weak and where known to break.
Like you said they put these in everything.It sounds like maybe yours is built up some.This is all I know which isn,t much.I want to know more too.Does someone out there agree or disagree with my fathers opinion?
Some of you flathead guys ,Help us out!!!!!!! And Pack I would like to see some pictures of what you are doing too.Thanks,Carl
