Haven't posted here in a while.  Am strongly considering installing Model A auxiliary trans in my '52 OC-3 as per the 2 write-ups found on this site.   Anyone know where I might find adapters & related items needed for the project?  Thanx

Hello,

Since you've got 36 views and no replies I'll take a stab at a reply to your question about where to get adapters etc. for a Model A transmission install in an OC3. I'm no expert here - I've got one HG with a model A transmission and I am in the process of setting up my second HG with a model A transmission. I am fairly familiar with the conversion process and, unless you can find a "Trasco" unit, you will need to provide adapter plate specs to a qualified fabrication shop and have them build the adapter. Obviously you will need the Model A transmission too. The adapters are easy to make but they take time and attention to detail to get them properly lined up and to get the spacings correct relative to the input shaft, throw out bearing etc. The fabrication instructions on this site are well written and should get you headed in the right direction. There are lots of options for the "U joint" assembly. It needs to be short enough to fit between the Model A transmission and the Clark transmission. You can use a Model A U-joint but I think a better approach is to have a fabrication shop build something that will allow you to remove the U-joints without moving the transmission or engine to allow clearance. The design in the write-up will work and is simple to build. As far as I know there are no "kits" commercially available for this conversion. Hopefully some other viewers will chime in here. There is a heading on this site specific to auxiliary transmissions under the HG heading. That would be a better location for this discussion.

Thanks for the reply.  I have examined the process posted by John De Marrais and subsequent update by Dick Wolcott (both are very informative articles) and as a retired machinist/machine tool rebuilder, am aware of the need for accuracy.  Was hoping for the off chance that someone might have some of the pieces for sale as I do not have access to machine tools & would have to farm it all out.
