This is a beauty.

A guy buys 3126 CATs and ZF280 gears.

The "dealer" decided to make a slight "modification" to the adapter plate to accommodate the rear facing starter on the 3126 CAT.

Nice !!!!!!:eek:

sure would have been easier and prettier to buy the right adapter plate for the CATs in the 1st place !:rolleyes:

Looks like someone has been watching too much of the Home and Garden channel. Is he going to "flip that gear?"

Muddy - I see an assembled transmission and adapter plate for a CAT. How would you advertise it? "Mint condition P.O.S. with zero hours"? Call it what you want. Fine by me. I think someone needs a fishing trip real bad! LOL

Dealers should never be allowed to service anything. Ever.

Still, whoever did the cutting did dress the edges very nicely. :(
