  1. Got back and cut the gaskets, here is what I'm left with. They seem quiet pliable and hopefully will do the job. It was also a hell of a lot cheaper then buying them pre-cut. Need to pinch every dime. ^^
  2. Wonderful, so that would be a 1/64" felpro gasket, found a link: https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/c/fel-pro/fel-pro-gasket-material/fel0/3045?q=gasket+material+1%2F64&pos=1 Thanks for the help!
  3. Plan on cutting new gaskets for my powerflite but haven't a clue as to what thickness of material to go with. My local parts shop only stocks 1/32" material and it seems considerably thicker then the stuff I pulled from the transmission. I would really appreciate any help on the matter.
  4. Thanks for the help folks, the picture really helps. It seems like I'm missing a retaining element for that dust shield, that red painted wire. Anyone happen to know here I could find something similar? I'm also missing the small service door for the drum, it appears that those get thrown out very often.
  5. Does anyone know if the output shaft rear bearing in the extension housing on the powerflite transmission gets packed with grease? I assume not but I don't see how it gets lubrication and the manual does state that the oil seal is followed by a grease shield. I honestly don't know what the grease shield is there for, just to keep dirt away from the oil seal?
  6. This is my first time posting here Like Greg said, buy the service manual and study it (has lots of pictures to illustrate steps) if you want it to work, make time on your weekends. This is a project!!! But it is certainly do-able if you want to learn. Here is a good parts sight to start. the link is to the manual. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/plymouth,1948,p15+deluxe,3.6l+218cid+l6,1486874,literature,repair+manual,10335 its $13.30 plus shipping off rock auto.
  7. Here lies my hopes and dreams.
