    Think I'll make some of the parts flow together....
    (Little grind time on the case to kicker cover might help get rid of some Frankenstein Look)

    Some great looking parts - LOVE those Cal cases - just out of interest will there be much difference in price when its finished compared to an off the shelf Baker?

    Dang good question .... Really don't know...
    The work that the owner wants me to do is flow in the parts like what I did on my 52...



    Then do a full polish and Clear Powder Coat .....



    That work requires welding and mega grind time on my end....

    Thinking back to how many hours it took me to do mine ..... I don't want to even think about it....!!!
    Been over 20 years ago and I have slept since then.....

    Might go 93" with it... ????

    After that work goes down can start loading a few parts in it.
    Want to get the fourth gear race in it and line lapped to size, countershaft case bushings loaded and the bottom case studs so the clear powder-coat can be applied....

    A little grind time will go down on the studs that are standing a bit tall....

    The Jim's stud installation tool helps to make the studs go into the case easier....

    Game plan is to do as much assembly as possibly then take it apart for final polish and clear coat ...

    That way less chance of boggering up the final finish..

    Not one of my fave-rate jobs cause it takes so much time to do....
    .................... (Right) ..................

    Did about two hours of work on the case today....
    That was welding up the low spots and roughing in the cuts....

    .... LMFAO ....

    ... Ultra Super Fine Grit ...
    (Trying to get the long mile out of it)
    __________________________________________

    Ok .. Enough talk about my "Preferred Tool" ...

    Back to the Tranny...

    Y'all see that open hole under the ratchet top....??? ... That is for a lock on the shift fork shaft.... In the Jim's rebuild kit is a late model shaft that uses a c-clip inside the case to keep the shaft from going anywhere...... Soooooooo ..... Looks like I will be firing up the tig torch again here very soon.....!!!



    Oh Shoot..... More grind time .....

    "Great Horny Toads"

    The flow came to a stop ...!!!!

    The angle grinder that I use alot for doing this type of grinding blew a gasket..
    It uses ring and pinion gears and are super small in size, they started to be noisy, so in a box it went back to the manufacture for a tune up.... This be number 4 that it made that trip...



    Well the flow got slowed down some....

    Moving right along with it.....
    Will be loading the main & counter shafts soon...
    Then pull back apart and final shine and clear-coat will be laid on....

    And then ........ ????

    The owner has this set-up in mind of doing.....



    He will be running a Morris Snap Mag.... Think we will increase oil capacity by welding up the battery cavity and have it chrome...

    (Wonder if "TT" stands for Tavern to Tavern..??)

    Ain't done yet....

    Waiting on the Super Gloss Powder from Eastwood to show up...
    Got a few more hours to go in with setting up main & counter shafts, dialing in shift forks, taking it back apart for final polishing and laying down the clear, then put it all back together....

    Forgot to order a part .... Fourth gear seal spacer ....
    Being I'm in the mode of assembly today, hoping that will be the only part that was overlooked ..... ???

    Soon to find out.....

    Going to wait till I get the 90* back in my hands to do the finish...
    I have excellence control with the cut using it.... Hope that it will be soon....
    Once it's all dressed down to where I like it, the polish will be next in line.... Then the clear powder ....
    Final assembly is just around the corner for this tranny...
