            I'll volunteer to provide some slave labor. Since I sold you the car, it's the least I can do [B)]

                    Tom; I can just imagine what a R1 Avanti would do to a T-86, I used to quite regularly tear out syncros, cluster gears, second gears always something. And this was in my first "family car" a 4 year old '63 Daytona Wagonaire with 289, 2 brl. 3.73 axle and T-86 Overdrive. I (almost)never drove it flat out, just kind of medium hard and never missed a shift. I always thought that car was just too heavy and powerful for that trans. One of the times I had it out, I put in an Avanti clutch and I am sure that didn't help it any. As most of you know, the stronger you make one part of the power train, something else will become the "weak link"!

                    I know that those Sears Allstate Tire giveaway Avantis were all 3 speed T-86, but that had to be a mistake, the T-85's were bullet-proof and would have worked well.

                    Our friend, '61 Hawk owner and faithful helper "Doc" will probably be doing this unofficial T-86 Overdrive repair seminar in our Studebakers Northwest outdoor swapmeet space. So I'll see you all there.

                        Here is my best Gtech results, a 10.6 0-60, notice that with the bind
                        in the linkage, I spent over a second and a half just shifting![V]

                            As per the original post, yes it IS Doc that's doing this. Hopefully everyone will be there so, if nothing else, we can say hello[8D]

                                Most of you know of my search for a T86 trans. for Molly. Well, here's the plan:

                                Gord suggested rebuilding it in the parking lot at the Meet... sounded crazy, but a possibility.

                                Any suggestions (positive, of course!) would be appreciated[^] Let's make this work!
                                Just so it doesn't drag into a long evening, ensure we have ALL the necessary supplies on hand, including the obvious, like rags, varsol, and fresh, new gear oil, etc. Maybe even a couple of rattlecans of black Tremclad for that 'finishing touch'. There's nothing worse than being held up because someone has to run to the parts store for something that was easily overlooked![]
