Complete running 288 engine and transmission. Block is a 1948.
Transmission is set up for am electromatic clutch with the governor and sensors.
I drove the car into the garage and just pulled it out. I have no need for a 288 as I am going back to a 282.
I can sell just the engine or transmission or as a package deal.
Package deal is $850 OBO
Only know issue is the water pump needs rebuilt but I think I have an extra I can throw in
Located west of Seattle WA.

Jerry; Good for you going back to the original 282. I would suggest you find an R-9 overdrive transmission, with the none overdrive differential it will perform like a modern car on the freeway. The only part that is difficult to find is the original overdrive cable that attaches to the steering column. The kick down switch and R-9 regulator take a little cash, but are available.

Jon,
I already have the overdrive in the restored chassis and I have the correct cable and relay!

Just curious what year car the engine and trans came out of or if there is a casting date on the transmission.

The engine might be a replacement in a prewar car but switches on the side of the transmission were only used on the prewar EC. I was under the impression postwar EC was sold with an overdrive and not as a stand alone option. If it was available postwar it would seem to be an extremely rarely installed option so the governor adapter plate would have been used but not the switches.

For those who have never seen a car with the stand alone EC option was wondering if you could post a couple of photos of the side of the transmission showing a bit more detail on the switches and how they mount as well as the governor adapter plate.

Definitely available prewar but I have never read where stand alone EC is mentioned as available postwar so would like to find some documentation to that effect -- so far without success.

If it was available postwar I think most would agree that stand alone EC would have been a fairly rare option since all postwar cars with EC I can remember being mentioned on the forums seem to have the EC-OD combination. Am also fairly sure postwar EC would not have had the switches on the trans side so suspect that is a prewar made trans --- BUT, there is still the bothersome question of did the very first few 46 21st series production have the prewar EC instead of the postwar version. Someone on one of the forums a few years back thought that was the case based on a car he knew of.

Here are some pictures of the transmission
It all came out of a 42 but I do not think either of them were original to the car
