Ok there's Ben a little progress l have cut the last 2 pieces

Then I put the cover on for mockup

Hopefully next week l will get down to my welder and start assembling the top.
My plan is to weld the corners in red.
Then weld the shift rails in blue.
Then I will take off the cover and weld the inside corners.
Then I will weld the inside shift rails in green.

Before I can do this I nead to get some fibreglass welding tape so there will be no spater on the shift rails.

Then I ground the inside .


Were the big ground spot is low range gear is. Next step is too mark out for indents. Then over drill the top of the shift rails and plug weld. Reground. And redrill for the indent springs. After this I will finish welding the shif rail box.

Ok I started to work on shift interlocks in the first pic is the three pices and a templet

In the next two pic is showing the templet being used to locate centers of the interlocks on the shaft


The next pic shows the pices assembled

After testing noticed that the one shift fork needed a spacer

Hopfuly next week I will get a chanse to finish welding the shift rail frame.

In the next pic I have driled plug welded and redrilled for indents.



Next step is to setup testing the springs on the indents. To figure how thick plate will be.

Update plug welded the top of the spring indents and welded one of the shift rail guide end. Drilled and taped the rear shift fork. Then with the allen set screw marked the new shift rail holddown spots. Then driled and burred the spots. After this ground the interlocks for hits.

any updates on this setup? Been looking into this. I think some things are made difficult by over thinking the situation . Your setup seems real simple and effective.

Seems like a lot of work. When i was driver drop I just flipped my case and doubled the o rings on the stock setup, plugged the vent off the tailhousing and drilled a new one and ran it. It didnt leak at all.
