Destroyed it real good like…,

Couldn’t have happened on a better weekend!! Done for the 2021 season.

M22 trans just couldn’t take any more abuse…
That’s how it goes some weekends. Build it , race it, break it, repeat haha.
Although this time, I need a new case as well. But… hell ya, I love the smell of drag racing fuel and pulling the shrapnel out afterwards.


Good time for the M23 upgrade..
My ADD is getting worse with age.. ( Automotive deficit disorder )

I ordered up stuff to upgrade to the 32 spline output, along with a new case, idler, counter gear, etc and more patience!!

I had a non syncro 3 speed in my ‘64 Super Sport and was racing a Mustang off the toll booth west of Chicago and when i banged 2nd gear, I stripped all the teeth off all the gears and rode all they way home (40 miles) in high gear ( direct drive). that first/reverse sliding gear did not stop when second was going in.

You will have a better tranniy when you get ‘er done!

cheers, Jim

Been there done that with my ‘64 Impala convertible. 3rd gear broke. It was a close-ratio Muncie, and I considered turning it into a wide-ratio (if that would even have been possible, I’m not sure). That 2.20:1 first gear made it a dog off the line, even with a 3.93 rear gear. I was already into it for the cluster and 3rd gear and a rebuild kit. I’ve been out of hot rods for awhile, so I had to look up the M23. That is a nice unit!

Oh Jim, You bad bugger!!! Racing coming off a toll booth outside Chicago, you don’t hear that too often anymore haha. Could you imagine getting caught doing that in 2021. Well, maybe its guys like us that changed the laws about street racing haha.

I’m sure the new tranny will be much better for sure…
I called up my buddy from Auto Gear. We get talking, then he had the bright idea to upgrade me to the M23 since I was buying all the components that make it different from the 22W. I also get to test some fancy new bronze synchro rings. Basically, with the iron mid plate, 32 spline main, and 40 spline hubs. I’ll have a 1st gen M23, their improved version of the M22. Hopefully, it will stay together longer than the M22’s of my past…

Hey, and Jim,
I know, you know, how I destroyed it lol, can’t fool a car guy when they see the pics haha.

Now, If I told anyone else how it happened, I would embarrass myself so bad I’d probably have to get out of racing. Although.. Maybe I should at this age lol.

But, honestly, I just love the look I get from my wife when I say… My Love…. I need to build another tranny, engine and rear end for the upcoming 2022 season. At least that way, I will get enough $$ to build this tranny and some $$ left over just in case…
Lord Tunderin’ – I just keep thinking… good thing she still loves me.

Cheers,
Gary

Steven, I think I will be getting out of the Hot Rod seen as well in a few more years. My ADD fund is beginning to dry up.
You had a decent rear gear that shouldn’t have been a dog off the line. But, yes… to hook when the tree bulbs begin to lite up, things need to work well together.
The new M23 is definitely a nice unit. We will see how it holds up in 2022..

What are you running for an engine? My Impala had the SHP 300 horse 327 with FI heads and an AFB. It was fun once the revs picked up, for sure. That convertible was mighty heavy, though. When I popped the 4-speed, I got a three-speed trans from my dad on a loan. It had a 2.61 first gear, and that was pure joy off the line! I lived in southern California (still do) and used to cruise Van Nuys Blvd. That 3 speed made for way better launches when street racing.

My air mail box is filling up…..
But…
Ok, I’m going to have a ton of steaming crap for posting this, but I’m as giddy as a
school girl!

Here goes it, A 67 Olds 442…. Kinda like.
I’m currently running a 505 CI, 4.350” bore, 4.25” stroke Olds. Noooo nose spray.. Trying to keep everything together is a challenge haha.

Its good to know people and where to get things when you want them lol,

New trans went together with a little more ” rear end ” insurance for the A$$ kickin’ I took…

The new M23 Frankenstein…

Now back to woodworking…....

Let’s call the case,

Aftershock Engineering for now..

Things may move around yet, but indicators have been placed to look out for that. No new computer chip smart rear ends have been developed yet haha..

Having said that, I used Sketchup for the design to keep this on a woodworking forum level.

Cheers,
Gary

I’ve got a 10 speed on my Schwinn. Threw a chain the other day. Peddling up a steep hill. Lots of pressure on the tranny. It finally gave out downshifting. Chain is okay but a gear tooth is twisted. Still thinking about it. Don’t think this is going to be a simple gear fix. I might have to drop the sprocket and install a new one. Pricy but you gotta do what you gotta do to keep pushing those pedals down. Anyway, I’ll put it up on the lift tomorrow and see what’s what. Wish me luck. It’s not gonna be fun.

Good Luck, but don’t feel bad Craftsman.
I have a vintage 12 speed Nishiki. Spent months trying to find a new derailleur for it.
I think I blew it out trying to shift from 3rd to 4th but went into second by mistake…..
Luckily, chain and sprocket are still good.

My 67 Cougar 390 4 speed didn’t last long. The insurance was 3 times what the car payments was ;-( I surrendered ;-))

See,,,...... your overthinkin’ things again, now look up ^^^^, Your ‘CrayOn creW” followed ya in. Your first problem is… your low testosterone levels had no place to go like..

Now,
Craftsman. You could build a wooden lift and several sized peddle blocks till ya learn how to ride that beast again.
That’s an easy fix with a new pair of glasses.
Add, some good old fashion bottom end yoga to your diet and you’ll feel that testosterone move to where you need it most.

Think safety first thou…. grab 1 of your old hockey cards ( Yes. McDonalds/chucky cheese cards will work too) and a new plastic clothes pin. So, to let others know your comin’ gassed with low testosterone levels like.

Then add some new and improved elastic bands. ( you know the kind that comes around broccoli / but it sounds like your a lollipop guy soooo, maybe a neighbor could help with that )
Just eat the broccoli before attempting to put the elastic band around your pant leg bottom.
Ahhh, I’m all mixed up now… just google Easy Rider

Well, after using my Sketchup..
It Sounds like you need a 16 speed and longer legs first like.

I wish you luck as requested…
