Hello Bruce:  The length is correct by using the early 4 speed but I wonder
what is
done about the input shaft seal?  It is in the wrong location on the shaft.
Has Marty
got info on that by chance?

Best, Steve

shaft if the 64-65 transmission is used.  (Thanks, Marty)  Clark's sells a
new 66-69 shaft with improved material and hardening just like the longer
Kelmark shaft.  This appears to be a good approach to avoiding the hard to
get and more expensive long shaft.  Does this seem reasonable?  Bruce

alternatives.  Bruce
