Do you have a M-35 or some variant of the 2 1/2 ton truck? Are you looking for a way to have more speed from your truck? For years people have talked about ways to gain more top end. Larger tires have been the most often used way but this affects all gearing and is hard on the clutch and brakes. The solution came to me a few years ago after reading some spec sheets on the civilian version of the Spicer 3053. The civilian version, usually a 3153, came behind a gas motor and had a range of overdrive ratios available. Now it would have been very convenient to just buy some gears for the Spicer 3153, but they are so old that even used parts no longer exist. While it is possible to produce several ratios, .69 has been shown to be the best ratio for the M-35 as it will accommodate stock 9:00 and 11:00 tire sizes and works well with the popular 14.5R20. You can drive at 65 mph at less than 2500 rpm! See web site below for more info and specs. The .69 sets and can also be used in repowered M-37 vehicles, (it is quite common to use a 4BT and the 3053 tans), and M-35 based vehicles that have been shortened. The main shafts being modified are new shafts, second gear is modified to match the newer production with oil passages (see picture) that allow for much better lubrication. 5th gear will also be mounted on needle brngs as well as 2nd for increased reliability. The .69 overdrive kit includes everything you need, gasket set, a new main shaft, needle bearings, late style 2nd gear, syncro hub for 2/3 syncro, 5th gear and sleeve for needle brngs on main shaft, and 5th counter shaft gear. New syncro hubs and bearings are available at low cost, should you need them. http://waterloospecialties.com THERE IS A REFUND OF $40 FOR 1 OF YOUR OLD PARTS. THE LISTED PRICE IS FOR THE COMPLETE KIT MINUS 2ND GEAR WHICH YOU MAY ALREADY HAVE OR CAN MODIFY YOURS. Do you have a slow M35A3? With the installation of a 3053 manual trans you can have a top speed of up to 70 mph. You only need a flywheel and clutch, approx $500, a good 3053 trans and this kit. Some additional small parts needed.
