"I simply wanted to thank you for taking the time to publish the above manual. I recently ordered one and learned
a great deal about the Ford transmissions. While I have torn several transmissions apart, and had no parts
remaining after the rebuild, I was a little unsure of what I was doing. With the help of your manual I completed
another 3 speed transmission this past weekend (1949 F-1 pickup) and for the first time felt confident all would
work well as I put it together....rather than praying there was no grinding when installed."
