Ok I got to work on dana. Made a jig for locating the shift rod guides. It made of 5/8 Dowell and a pencil.

The rectangle tubing is 1" x 1 1/2" with a .120 wall and is 11" long. Next pick is

The next pic is the beging of the shift rails tubes. The long ones will have seals put in them.

Ok the seal for the shift rods are an O ring seal. In this pic u can see a 1 brass nipple, 2 an O ring, 3 a shift rail tube.


How this works is that u tighten the nipple wich compress the O ring witch makes the seal. You can see ledge for the O ring in this pic

I like it. I would venture to guess you wouldn't want to tighten it too much so you wouldn't squish the o-ring. Would you need some kind of loctite so the brass fitting doesn't work itself out? Or did you countersink it just enough so it would seal but not bottom out?

Yes your right but before I loctite it I will have to test it for leeks and how much drag.
