    Jamie, did you get the paperwork I sent?

    I think a T-5 is in line for Betty in the future. At the moment, I have a 58 Commander that belongs to a certain 16 year old that needs the gas tank cleaned out. If I don't get it done soon, my son may turn into an alien and disintegrate me with his Aludium 236 explosive space modulator.

    "If you aren't a stickler for originality, and you don't mind a floor shift, the T-5 swap is getting popular, and there are conversion kits available. The T-5's are available at junk yards at very reasonable prices now, too."

    I think Betty got scared sleeping in the darkness of your garage. When I went to leave work last night, I noticed that I has no low beam headlights. She must have blown them trying to figure out where she was. I know I made some folks mad driving home with only high beams.

    My Lark sounds so sweet at highway speeds with barely any mufflers and two and a quarter inch pipes, I have to drive it hard. Someone once told me that the engine in my Lark does not run like a 259. I tend to agree. It seems quite a bit stronger. Maybe it's time for a Doug Nash 5 speed.

    Jamie, you're just way too rough on Studebaker transmissions!

    BTW, look for your mug shot in the December Turning Wheels.

    Studebakers Northwest specializes in rebuilds like Bob had done. SNW brought the hard to find parts from WA to South Bend. Our Transmission guru " Doc" G , WA state, along with Gord R, Alberta, and intersted parties did the rebuild on that T 86 in our swap meet stall at the South Bend meet a few years back.

    The T-90 is a T-86 but with a straight cut first gear. This is what I used on my T-90...it has nothing on the overdrive, but is pretty good overall along with the Stude shop manual.

    We have a good batch of inspected USED parts and NOS parts to make them like new. Inspected/overhauled units are also available.

    Mine was fixed at the '07 SB Meet by some great folks who took mercy on a clueless stranger. Check this thread:

    http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...t-SB-Wednesday!

    Actually, an old-school transmission shop should be able to do it if you have one. Alternatively, it would not be the end of the world to ship it to one of our Stude shops to get rebuilt. Might be worth it just to know it was done right.

    OK, so when this is what the OD looks like inside, what is done to fix it? I think I am in that exact situation myself.

    Mike, I pm'd you before seeing this, so please keep that in mind after putting out your efforts for me.

    And how do I find someone that can do this work for me? After being a member of the local SDC for a few years, I don't think any of them can do this kind of work, and I have asked.

    LOL! In the first picture I was trying to show a close-up of the twisted splines. I'm still to this day trying to get decent at taking pictures

    As you noted, the rest of the trans. will continue on and function just fine (of course, you wouldn't want to do that).
