Did a search and couldn't find anything saying how to identify a shift drum. I found part numbers but MV is so bad about putting part numbers on things i couldn't find anything on the drums i have. These are currently still attached to transmissions. Which, by the way, would be nice to be able to find out if the trans are oem gears or close ratio.

If anyone can help me get this figured out that'd be great.

which is what?

varium, here you go:

the stock transmission 1st gear is 38X13 or 2.923:1
the CR transmission 1st gear is 37X14 or 2.642:1

so just count the teeth on 1st gear, the ones farthest to the right

see the button head rivet in the drum?

if the closest groove is a straight section its normal pattern

if the closest groove ends at the rivet its a reverse pattern drum

this is in neutral, simple right?
:naughty:

Had to wait for the rain to pass to get some decent pics. Below is on of the shift drums from both sides.

knurl: You are speaking of the gear on the top in this pic, right? The one furthest away from the mounting plate.

Thanks for the confirmation. Looks like i have 2 reverse shift drums on standard tranny sets.
