Ok, I get it, the young man likes to shift. (I do too). Nothin wrong with that. I allways used to have 4 or 5 speeds. (they didn't have 6 yet)

nash transes are long gone and so is the owner and they where junk back when he supplied them to GM . look into a liberty TKO with the face gearing . its like the dog /face gearing they use in racing motorcycles , not a clutchless , but more of a oversized synchro .

I think it's a pretty safe bet he won't be looking at any trans changes for a good long time. There's nothing out there in his budget for now.

the sheetmetal was the weak link . Gary I think you can make a good one for him , just make it out of moly , triangulate it and stress relieve the weld joints .
