I think the next step is to compile a list of "box numbers", and compare what was in them, or perhaps more importantly, what CHS units will serve each. I'll jot down my numbers tomorrow. As I think I mentioned in an earlier post in this thread (I'm sure you all remember), one of my input shafts is slightly smaller than the others, or one set of gears is slightly larger than the other. I forget which. Anyway, I built up a box with the mismatch and drove it for a while, but when I got my FNM box, I took it all apart.
I like the look of the above kit. How did we miss knowing about this so long?
It bears discovering whether the above input shaft is bored hollow for the horn wire or not. If not, perhaps they'll make a batch for us?
