muncie rebuild

Hey guys, i last wrote about 2 months ago, asking if the avg. guy could rebuild the 4sp. muncie. Of course you guys were very encouraging. Well, I purchased a how to video from gear vendors and did a total rebuild. It went nicely & it gave me an excuse to purchase a 20 ton shop press. I would recommend anyone that is going to do it to purchase the video. Also, I cringe when i was thinking of having it rebuilt (from the lowest cost estimate)

Muncies are a piece of cake IMO to work on. During my later high school years my friends and I were constantly working on all our Muncies. We would try just about every trick that would appear in Hot Rod magazine. We got quite good at opening them up and putting them back together. Great transmission.

Circle trackers remove first and second gear for lower rotating weight. Although I've done my fair share, I let a buddy do all mine manual trans stuff. I t takes him about 45 min. to complete. Some rules even state you must remain first gear. In this case he will slide on a dummy gear so if tech opens the case they see a gear and all is happy. What they don't know is the gear float on the shaft. Add's total weight but not rotating weight. Same with reverse gear.
