From what he described it sounds like he broke the layshaft(maybe mainshaft, could be confusing them).

Doug has a iia tranny that might be an option.


Jumping it off a cliff and buying a Toyota is also an option

Changing a series gearbox is a pita.

Pendy is between Bentonville and Omaha, but he hasn't been active on the board for awhile that I've seen.

He wants an S3 box. I think he doesnt want to pull the current box apart, as it still works, and you risk it not working when pulling it apart. Plus we were trying to get something to Omaha first, this way Rob could order parts and fix it before the Air Portable gets there.

I've pretty much exhausted my list of possible tranny whisperers (did I say that?) on my call down list here in the NE and no one has a SIII box ready to go right now. I do have a SII box that he could have for a while but it has a chipped 1st gear and of course he'd have to re-route the clutch slave. Probably not the best option.

The problem he's having sounds very much like the main shaft just loosened up on him and the distance piece between 2 and 3 has worn it's self down which is making 2 and 3 iffy at best. He should be ok limping it home on that box if he avoids using those two gears. "Should"

This truck probably hasn't seen this much highway usage since... ever. The poor thing is obviously trying to burn through the arthritis pains and good ole' Brandon isn't taking no for an answer. Brandon is my hero right now.

When he was at SW Rovers, they found a broken "circlip" on the drain plug. They were pretty sure it was the mainshaft spring ring, RTC1957. With this gone, 2nd and 3rd have axial float on the mainshaft making engaging them difficult.

FWIW, SIII bellhousing will fit on a post-suffix something or other IIa box and vice versa. As long as it has the large layshaft front bearing. So the slave cylinder issue shouldn't be a factor if you find a good later IIa box

I hope you didn't think my post was a slight toward you or the truck. Believe me, I've had these sorts of issues with my own lightweight at one time or another. These are old cranky bastards and putting them on the highway for extended periods with someone who drives with as much gusto as Brandon is surely going to find the low hanging fruit sooner or later.

I'm just trying to help out with whatever little pieces of info I can. I may not have much but at least I have a tranny call down list. Did I just say that again?

Not at all. Just trying to help out by clarifying what is the problem as far as we know. If there is someone friendly on his route, that is not scared of gearbox internals and does not charge for their work.... they could fix it up. Probably just need this $2 part and a bunch of labour. Brandon is not scared of fixing things.

Especially, as it seems, finding good known Series gearboxes lying around loose is not a simple task these days.

I'm sure he is fine though. The engine pulls like a train down low. You can happily run in fourth at 25 mph. With the overdrive, he really still has 4 gears...

with an OD that nut requires 100ft lbs so it is best to use the tool. Don't think there is a factory spec for the mainshaft nut when used without an od. Just "tight"
