T-5 Mainshaft Needed

Finally got the the synchro deal sorted out.
But my mainshaft is no good.
Anyone have/know of a T-5 mainshaft with needle bearings under first gear they would be willing to part with for compensation?

Re: T-5 Mainshaft Needed

My t-5 has a first gear that rolls on needle bearings.
I've located a mainshaft for a t-5 with-out needle bearings.
Is it interchangeable with the rest of my t-5 parts if i get a new first gear for the shaft?

Re: T-5 Mainshaft Needed

They're not interchangable, the T5 mainshaft without roller bearings is used in Ford applications, mustangs and the like, and are for World Class transmissions, the jeep variety of mainshaft is Non-World-Class, and has a different tooth count, and shaft length.

Re: T-5 Mainshaft Needed

These are the specs for the two jeep mainshafts (both are for the non world-class t-5's)

T5 Mainshaft 14 3/4" 23 splines (no needle 1st gear) Jeep
T5 Mainshaft 14 3/4" 23 splines (w/needled 1st gear) Jeep

And both 1st gears have 32 teeth, according to southwest gear the swap can be done.
So Im going to give it a try because they seem identical, but thanks for the heads up, if it doesnt work ill let you know and you can tell me "i told ya so."
