There wasn't much wrong in the transmission. The cork seals were gone so I installed sealed bearings, but that was all it needed.

When I got the transmission back together it wanted to lock up in some of the gears. I found that one gear was slightly engaged with the reverse idler when it shouldn't be. Notice in the first picture how the reverse idler gear is slightly offset.

It turns out the cover had been cast with the oil level lettering upside down. Flipping the cover over fixed problem. I remember reading that the Dodge brothers liked to drink...

Chris:

In the third photo in post 21, there is a spiral gear in the transmission. What is it for? Speedometer drive?

Wow! What an unusual place to put the speedo drive gear.

I hadn't planned to tear it down this far, but one thing led to another. Here is how it sits now.

At first glance the body didn't look too bad, but the media blaster tells the truth. Someone had recently filled the seat pan with fiberglass and covered it with a bedliner like material. The other areas I knew about, but the seat pan and back came as a surprise.

When I did my '25, I purchased the piston from http://www.then-now-auto.com/ They were either slant six pistons or half a set of mopar V8. The ones you have appear to be hemi pistons.
