I'm in need of a 3 speed tranny with a 1.68 2nd gear ratio (no lines on shaft). I have one with 3 lines on the shaft. Anyone wanna trade?

When I tore it down there was no #1 piston left, I think I dropped a valve and caused the problem. Thats the same piston I replaced a few weeks before. I've got it built better now with a good set of double humps on it. Turned it 6700 friday night and didnt have any problems. I'm just trying to get a higher ratio now.

Where ya located, Scoot? I have several 1.68 Saginaws. Is a 3-liner the 1.89 ratio? I'm in S.E. Mizzou.

Tilley, I believe it is, let me do some checking after I get off work tonight to make sure what transmission it is. I'm in Harrison by the way.

Tilley, It looks to be a saginaw 3 speed with the 3 rings. Which would make it the 1.89, Are you interested in trading or selling?

Not to put a damper on your trade, but you may want to count the revolutions in second to be sure of your ratio. Most of these transmissions are pretty old and the input shaft might have been changed. High gear is one to one on all of them, and the main drive will interchange. Just to let you know, because I have seen this happen.

How far from Harrisburg are you? The tranny is in excellent shape. The length and output splines are the same as all the other Saginaw 3 & 4 speeds that I have. I can't get to the shop to check it till Friday, but I don't know of any other lengths or output splines(unless you're refering to the old "shorty" Saginaws, and they only came In a 1.75 and a 1.61 ratio). By the way, I'm located in SE Missouri, close to the Bootheel. Ever hear of Malden Speedway, or about the new track opening early August in Poplar Bluff?
