Got my adapters yesterday!

Started assembling last night - waiting on new bearings before I get too far.

Unfortunately, it appears the hole for the shift rail is too small. I'm trying to figure out what to do - I'm not sure the vendor believes me. Both ends fit the same as does the other shift rail. It goes in freely a little over an inch, then it gets really tight.

I tapped it in with a mallet thinking that it may just be a burr at the detent hole, but no-go - it is TIGHT!

Taking pin gauges home tonight to measure and try to figure out what is going on, also ordered a cheap 14mm reamer to use as a last resort.

You could try tossing the shift rail in the freezer for a few hours, but that may not help if it’s still super tight once it comes back to room temp.

That is all the farther it goes. Not far enough to get the detents to the detent hole.

Tried that, no go.

Pin gauges revealed that there is a 0.001 step inside the hole right where my shift rail is stopping.

My shiny new $11 14mm ream is coming tomorrow and should fix me right up! Thank you Amazon Prime....

After working on some honey do projects around the house to make up for ordering dual cases, I'm finally getting back on to the truck.

The rest of the tranny/transfer parts should be here tomorrow! Should be some progress there soon.

I sand blasted and painted my header today with Eastwood high temp paint.

It's a factory header from a later model. Mine was cast and prone to cracking.

Wow, OEM headers?!
Toyotas mid model run solution to the cracking manifold?

I believe it is a W59.

It is all from my truck - with the adapters between the tranny and tcase. It hasn't moved in like 5 months!

So obviously I didn't make Coal Mine.....

I started back on the project about 2 weeks too late.

The tranny is in -

The driveshafts are at Hartman's in Reading to be shortened/lengthened. Should be ready on Tuesday. Hopefully the heat wave is gone by then!
