I am trying to identify 2 gearboxes I have to install in my 1953 356 coupe.

I have downloaded Vic Skirmants article and previously had a sheet with an outline shape of each type of box, 519, 644, 718 etc and the different mountings. I can no longer find this sheet to print off - any ideas where I might find it ???

My 2 boxes have 519/1 and 644/540 stamped on them. Can anyone shed light on the model they would be applicable to. My thoughts are the 519 is definitely a Pre A box, but were the 644 boxes put in any Pre A cars

Thanks for your help

I have never seen a trans with a "519/1" stamp. What is the serial number?
The early A cars used a 519 housing with a dual-mount nose. That's your 644/540 trans, and it's out of a speedster. Those were never installed in pre-A cars; because they did not exist then. What is the serial number? That trans can be installed in your 53 after changing the nose and mounting studs.

Richard,
Here is the schematic you're most likely referring to. It is shown in Stoddard's catalog on the web and in the older paper catalogs.
