4speed toploader rebuild
#1
hi folks,
i had to rebuild my 4 speed toploader because there were singing noises coming from the 1,2 and 3 gear. i figured it might just be the front bearing, but to be on the safe side i bought the big transmission rebuild kit. the tranny is for my little k-code but it's basically the toploader thats used in all of our mustangs.

what you need besides a little courage is a workshop manual, transmission repair book, an exploded view of the toploader and patience

Abudi,

I love how that you tackle every part of your own rebuild and document it. A man after my own heart.

Hey guys, if any of you need some advice or documentation of rebuilding a part of your car, it is probable that Abudi has rebuilt it and documented the process. Motors, clocks, dash, power steering pump, A/C compressor - check, its all here!

thanks guys for the positive feedback. i test drove my little k-code yesterday and everything was perfect. we reved the engine all the way up to 6500 rpms and everything was solid. this little car is one heel of a ride. it's so interesting to see how far the engines were in the mid sixties. in the US you had a 289 that generated 271 HP and over in europe you had the same car, number wise being the beetel, and that had around 34 HP. crazy huh....
