Well I just finished putting the transmission back together and back on the engine. So far so good. It appears to work but I haven't load tested it yet. I still have to finish reassembling the FEL and body before further testing. It was a bit nerve racking getting the transmission lined up even with the guide rods but it eventually went together with minor adjustments and moving the flywheel.

Sounds about normal putting it back together, so it works (so far) with the new flat plates instead of the old cupped ones?

So far but that is only spinning one of
the wheels in the air. I still more
assembly before I can drive it.

Yes I used the new flat plates.

The one wheel spinning while its in the air is the differential is working, your tractor may have another pedal to lock the differential as needed.

I know. I jacked up one wheel to see if
the transmission was engaging at all. I
was worried about the small sealing rings
on the oil supply tube of the input shaft.
They didn't go together easy.

That's why I'm glad my 1965 MF2135 industrial is a manual shuttle with a clutch. I bought a 1971 Ford 4500 TLB with the instant reverse/torque converter deal, I swapped it out for a regular Ford 6x2 manual transmission with a clutch. For what I'm going to use it for on the farm I really don't need the instant reverse/torque converter setup. The Ford instant reverse also doesn't handle/like heat too much so I'd figure I'd kill a lot birds with one stone.

I understand that. After buying most of
parts for transmission I think I could
have converted it to manual cheaper or at
least about the same price.
