Jerico Shifter Fabrication and Installation
This project got started, well, as many do... I have a new David Kee Toploader that I purchased for the Sunbeam Tiger project. As it seems I got a bug up my a$$ that I really like the straight cut gears and dog box that I have in the Mustang and decided I can just get a Jerico that will work.
As you might expect with every project I do their is no escape from the "damn, should have left well enough alone and just used the David Kee Toploder as it was a drop in.
Some of the highlights -
Different transmission length (this may work out better)
Different bearing retainer so Tilton Hydro TRB for stock Toploader that I have won't work
Different Shifter mounting location
Need to fabricate Shifter mounting plate
Need to fabricate Shift arms
...and other stuff yet to be determined!
Jerico WC4 4 Speed Gearbox
This is the Jerico WC4 transmission. I have it just test fit to the bellhousing to verify that the input shaft is the correct length as most come with GM length. It's about to be bolted to a nice transmission stand I got from Allstar. Will make it a bit easier to work on while on the bench.
