I paid for the parts I ordered for the 5 speed I'm putin in my ranger. I decided to have the shop pull the gears off the old main shaft and press them on the new shaft. I'll go pick them up tomorrow and reassemble the trans. Then try to put it in the truck tomorrow. If I get done in time I'll start swapping out the leafs for the 63" Chevys since I've been procrastinating it lol.

Order some white PlastiDip. If you don't like it take it off but if you do, keep it on however long you want.

Get a refund and spend under $100 on a custom. Lol

If I spent $350 and it broke that fast I would have gotten one elsewhere
