Yep, back in the late 50s I couldn't afford a Muncie 4 speed and a set of 4.56 or 4.88 gears; so I rebuilt a 3 speed with the 6 cyl gears because of a 2.94 first gear ratio instead of the close ratio 2.2. We used what we could afford and make by ourselves. That's what gave us our ingenuity that even helped us later on when we could afford better parts.
Don't know why these posts always turn into "who shot John" This will be my last or second last post before I "unsubscribe" !!!
