Morris Minor progress

Thought I'd give an update on the Morris Minor progress. It's coming alive. We actually drove it under it's own power. The frame worked out great. It steers fine. The engine runs fine but the transmission is grinding. It seems like it doesn't fully engage in all gears and pops out under load and holding it in makes it grind. I have a feeling I'm going to learn a lot about these transmissions soon.

Good luck on the transmission. I'm not very mechanically-minded myself, but I think I'm going to have to learn about the transmission on my Berkeley. I took it out last week, and over the course of a 50-mile run I seem to have lost 3rd gear and reverse.

I hope it is something simple.
