Spent the last couple of days putting the tranny back together; I still need to shim the front input bearing retainer by .047" after replacing the retainer itself and measuring the endplay. Will order the shim today.


I figured while it's somewhat together, I may as well start the cleaning process. However, it was raining most of the last few days so instead of bead blasting it, I took a wire wheel to it just to remove the crusty stuff; well 2 hours later, here's what it looks like:

BEFORE:


AFTER:


It's about ready for the beadblasting now. But still too much rain... :(

The tranny will get the bead blast and then paint.
Ive accumulated some gaskets and will begin the motor "paint" first, before assembling the motor to the "long block stage".
