BRAND NEW T84 GEARBOX COMPONENTS

Post by Rod Rushton » Sat Jul 17, 2021 4:47 am

I have just taken delivery of a complete set of BRAND NEW internal componets of gearbox parts for my '44 Ford GPW Jeep. They were not cheap, but inspection shows them to be of beautifully machined quality. ( if such Jeep gearbox parts turn you on!)
An American friend of mine was fond of saying - "The price will be long forgotten, but the quality will remain" - Time will tell if he was right or not.............
i intend to fit these at the end of the season, and will report progress as I go along.

can you link us to these parts?
I'm just at the start of a full gearbox rebuild, and parts quality is my main concern, I dont want to have to do it again

I agree, with your sentiment "The price will be long forgotten, but the quality will remain"
if you try to fail and succeed, what have you done?

Hi Rod,
You should hide that email address from crawling robots like this: xxxxxxx[at]yyyyyy[dot]zzz
Otherwise the owner will soon hate you. :wink:
