    I expected to see numbers in the higher 60's. Based on your research, it looks like my expectations were a bit high!

    re welding the case .. 555's have a heat treated case , 520's do not
    I know this has been debated for a long time. Is there any actual indication of this?

    none whats so ever, the case part numbers back in the day were the same between the 2 transmissions and were cast at the same place.

    Re: Intermediate shaft machining

    Decided to post an update of sorts. Nothing really new at this point. All my summer obligations have completely de-railed any momentum I had to get this done, but I plan to bring this to a resolution.

    I did email a member on here that had offered to get these repaired few years ago, but his feedback was that he had a few with problems so he stopped providing the service. I asked him for some specific info on how he did the modification and how they failed but he hasnt responded. I will try to get hold of the member on TD and see if he has any helpful info.
