Good day all. Thought I would pass this along as a learning experience. I have been replacing my transmission case along with the final castings. Thanks to Boss for the parts. I have the transmission bolted up, and have the left side final redone. I also relined the brakes. I began to bolt up the left side final, and the brake pivot pin would not let the final seat up against the trans case. The shoulder on the pivot pin was sticking out about 1/8 to a 1/4 too far. So i began investigating the problem. I have a 1950 (pre toggle style brakes), but the left side final (unknown to me) had been replaced at some point with a toggle style brake final. APPARENTLY THE TOGGLE STYLE FINAL COULD BE USED WITH THE NON TOGGLE STYLE BRAKES!
It was in my case anyway. I assume the pivot pin is from the toggle style brakes, and is possibly too long and must be ground off to fit. Is that assumption correct? I know the pin is seated in the final pivot hole.
