: hi i have a 45 2a. someone took my orig trany out and replaced it w/ a floor 3 speed trany dated 07-14-47. i found a colum shift trany case that seems to be in good shape. i still have the shifting linkage on the colum but no linkage to the trany i know someone makes the rods but i forget who. i have no shift lever on the colum. i also need to know if it can transplant the guts from the 47 trany into the 45-46 housing. if so what will i need to do it so that it will work. if some one can send me a web link giving me some direction that would be great. also if someone can let me know where i can find the parts i am missing (shifter lever, trany linkage to steering colum, top cover w/ breather valve, and tub floor plate). i can send pics if that woul make it more clear what i do and do not have. thanks for any help.
The floor plate halves can be made out of sheet metal unless one of the jeep parts dealers happen to have a set. If you can't find any let me know and I'll send you a pattern or if I get time I'll cut a set. The shift handle is the same as the jeepsters (I think) but again maybe one of the jeep parts guys may have one. One pops up on Ebay occassionally.
I do have an extra side shifter T90 complete in the basement in case of an emergency but I may be willing to part with it or trade for it. Let us now how you make out with your search.
