Today was a battle. Learned a lot on my first time reassembling a Saginaw 4.speed. but I got it together and the gears dont work properly. Gonna haveto unbolt the tailshaft assembly and see what's wrong. Gotta rest my back first :)

Ok, got it! Looks like the 4th gear synchro got jammed the 1st time I put it together.Took it apart and finally got it together correct. Funny story: as I was testing the gears, I kinda freaked out a little when neutral was turning the tailshaft, until I actually grabbed the tailshaft and it was just turning due to the new bearings and such. It's good now.

 Well done!  Isn't it great when you can do stuff like that yourself?  Very satisfying.

Pat, AMEN! And I agree with you, if I decide to do more of these rebuilds, I'm buying a press.

Tomorrow is the big test drive day! Got the car all back together, but I left it up on the jackstands so that I can run it thru all the gears first in the air and get the car hot and make sure there's no surprises. My shifter feels a lot better going thru the gears "dry" so I'm very excited. Will update tomorrow :)

Test drive success with just a few "*hiccups". Clutch is smooth on engagement, no more shudder, and shifter rebuild eliminated the shifter  going to 3rd while trans still in 2nd problem.  Had a scare when the cluch pedal xlclicked and went down some, so I was able to park it at pep Boys lot and reach under and tighten up the clutch pedal adjustment.  Then,st Lowe's, I was parking and left it in first while trying to remove key- that's a no-no withinterlock on this car- must be in a reverse to remove key.  So I wedged the shifter over to get reverse while trans was still in 1st (totally my error).  And ironically my nice tight rebuilt Shifter made it much harder to do.  I managed to burn my wrist on the exhaust monkeying with the shifter rods underneath (dummy).  But I was then able to use the Jack to raise the car some so I could work (it's a sicsor Jack that works on the frame NOT the factory bumper jack).  Very glad I had the forethought to keep a roadside kit in the trunk with tools and a t bar and spare tire:).  Don't forget to keep that stuff in your trunk you guys when you're cruisin in the 2 door posts!  A few photos xfrom the trip:
