Don;

Here's a link to an OD teardown.

By the way the 'missing' snap-ring was an item used on BW units in Lincoln, Mercury, & Fords, else not used.

Great reference, thank you!

Within minutes of trying, I got the tail shaft off and see that everything is black inside and whatever it is on the surfaces doesn't seem to readily come off. The gear teeth themselves look okay, though. The transmission with broken gears from which I am getting the rear housing is beautiful inside so it appears I'll have to swap that bit too when I hadn't intended on it but seeing how it assembles, I would have had to anyway in order to replace the gasket between the main transmission housing and the adapter plate. Unfortunately the snap ring pliers I just got is not compatible with that type of clip so I'll have to find one that is.

After having said that and looking at the photos up lose, it looks as though the planetary will pull out without removing any clips if done in unison with the shaft beside it. I'll check tomorrow to see how that works.

Also I finally managed to get the parking brake cable sheath clamps removed from the parts car. The main difficulty - once I got it high enough so that I could get underneath - was that the bolt heads were so thin that I had difficulty keeping a socket on them but in the end I found the proper combination of socket and box wrench that worked and it also wasn't rusted together as I expected.

So, with this in-hand, I started to hang the cable into place by first putting it through the equalizer and loosely fitting it to one of the backing plates which I was pleased to discover had the attaching screws. However, when I went to attach the second side I discovered that the cable was about a foot and a half too short! Very disappointing as I've had this NOS cable for years and it was marked with the proper part number.

EDIT: It's possible I jumped the gun again on the cable as it may be okay after all. While the parking brake equalizer is the same across the models, the hook-bolt attaching isn't so I need to find the proper one before determining that the cable is too short.

Here are the overdrive parts side by side and also I started a jack pumpectomy but didn't really have the energy for it. It was too late in the day and I was exhausted.

Not much work today as the first half was going into town to fetch the flywheel but the rest of the clutch is still out for rebuild. It got up to 113 degrees today and even the shop was a bit uncomfortable so I was out there only long enough to assemble a small workbench that I picked up in town for the ultrasonic cleaner and to clear out the area where one car goes inside and drive it in. As I’m leaving tomorrow, the shop is now all closed up for the next time!
