The T 90 gear boxes that came out later were a good box I couldn't hurt them but they don't fit the early flat fender Jeeps with out some modifications mainly to the floor.

Aaron, You are correct. They were the weak link on the old jeeps we had around here.

Thanks all for the input.  I am open to any suggestions.

The back story on this is I have a 1941 Warner T89 3 speed top load transmission with a brake band on the tail shaft and integral bosses to mount the brake lever to the case.  This is not the same as the Warner T89 which came out in the early 60's. The trans. will be behind a Continental 209 straight six.

So, working on trying to determine if there is another gear set that will replace the original which is FUBAR and T89 parts seem to be obsolete after many inquiries made throughout the country.

I don't have to stay with the original if another small Warner was available that would work behind the Continental and have the parking brake.  I have a Warner T9 4 speed and sourced the correct bell housing but it is just way too big for what I want to do and the input shaft would have to be redone to fit the motor.  Will start looking at the T86 that Hamish mentioned and see what the availability might be.  Ahhh, availability for 70 year old truck parts!!!

The T 84 doesn't like big time abuse it was barely good enough for the Jeep, I  know I had mine out many times.

The Reo Club has a website covering anything Reo---should come up on Google---they should have parts sources and/or advice if workaround is needed...

For what it's worth there should be plenty of Warner T84 parts around, they were used in WW2 jeeps.

According to CCJ-1937 Reo 4-50 and 4-75 with 4 cylinder Continental F4.140 used Warner Gear T84C 3 speed. 6-50 and 6-75 with Continental F6.209 used Warner Gear T86 3 speed. My guess is 4-50 and 6-50 were 1/2 ton and 4-75 and 6-75 were 3/4 ton.

Anyone have thoughts on what make and model transmission was used in a 1937 Reo small pickup?
