4 Speed 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

It has been probably 20 years since I was last inside a top loader and this sure did bring back some memories! Thanks for the detailed look at a great transmission rebuild!
