Thanks, I think this trans might be o.k. We took it apart and one of the countershaft bearings was obliterated. The bearing at the other end of the same shaft was seized. The one that exploded tossed 3 of the ball bearings out the aluminum tailshaft piece and left a hole. We got new 2 new bearings and will try to clean up and weld a patch on the tailshaft to close it up. Been busy cleaning all the bits of exploded bearing out of the case. I am surprised at how good this thing looked inside considering there was no oil in it. Has brass synchros and they look great. The sandy colored stuff was melted plastic bearing cage from the exploded bearing. The guy must have quit driving this as soon as it happened.
