It indeed says that -- all synch hubs are identical. I note a 1985 date on that manual -- I wonder if earlier models might have had a difference? I can say that I am pretty sure that on my 74 trans, original to the car, the 5th gear tripod (synch sleeve hubs as noted) was slightly longer on the ?outboard? 3 legs than the other 15 legs (Im counting a leg as the distance from the center of the hub to the outer edge of the leg). By about 10 to 15 thou if I recall. And as I said, the metrology was difficult.

Don't want to argue about it tho, and I am not taking the trans out of the car to prove myself right or wrong. Its not that important to me! Rock on!

PS after more than a year and maybe 4 K miles, that trans is silky smooth and crisp all at the same time! What a difference a quality job on the gearbox makes. I HOPE I can repeat that outcome with this spider trans.

May I comment,
That gear box IS SILKY SMOOTH!, that "Goats" is mentioning.

No reason to pull that one to prove anything.

Orientation of speedo drive?

Hello people, I removed my speedo drive without noticing the oil hole, and whether the oil hole should be 'up' or down on installation, acting as a fill hole or drain hole....
Which is correct, please?

Have some pics posted on page 1; not sure if that will help.

Thank you, Bulletpruf, but not really, unless you remember which way up the hole you can see in your photo in post 6 goes...

If you didn't take note at the time yourself, then I suppose you need the same answer as I do!

There seems to be no other indicator on the drive unit or the housing as to which is the correct orientation.

EDIT: there is an oil galley I hadn't spotted at the 11 o'clock position which aligns with the hole. Answer, therefore, is 'up'.

Sorry, I really don't recall. Hopefully someone will chime in.

Early vs. Late Transmission?

All -

Can someone please educate me on how to tell the difference between an early and a late transmission? I have two -- the one that's the focus of this thread, which came out of my 1972 GT Junior 1300 (assume it's original, but not positive) and one that came with a 1972 or 1973 2L engine that I bought.

There are small differences between the two, including bearings, and now that I'm about to order bearings, I need to make sure I'm ordering the right ones.

Thanks!

Scott

Now that I have the pictures posted, I need to go back and upload details. May take a while, but I will get to it.
