I stripped my Pan transmission down so I now just have the case with the mainshaft stuff still in it. I'll be bringing it to a shop this weekend to have a really worn out main drive gear bushing replaced along with the seals, etc.

When I get it back, I'll be putting it back together myself. Do I absolutely need one of those shift fork gauge rigs to get the shift timing right? If so, maybe I'll just have the shop do it instead of buying one.

You do if you don't already have a sectioned off top assembly to use as a gauge. I can't think of any other way to do it. Pa
