Just before the end of 2012, the transmission department of Jasper Authentic Custom Drivetrains remanufactured this three-speed manual transmission from a 1932 Ford Model B. The Model B was produced between 1932 and 1934 and was the successor to the Model A, which Ford produced between 1928 and 1931. "The biggest difference was that the transmission in the Model B used synchronizers to make shifting gears easier," says Dave Ernst, JASPER Special Projects Consultant. "The Model A did not use synchronized gears, so the driver had to be very careful not to rake the gears, and potentially damage the transmission." Obviously, this early drivetrain component is no longer offered new, nor does it fit into any production remanufacturing system. That’s where Jasper Authentic Custom Drivetrains comes in.

"This remanufactured JASPER engine includes all timing components with a new water pump, timing chain tensioners and new updated cam chains to correct an upper chain noise issue," says Brad Boeglin, JASPER New Product Development Team Leader. "The pistons have been re-engineered to match original equipment compression ratios, and include a graphite coating on the skirts to prevent dry start-up and piston scuffing." "In addition, JASPER installs 100% new intake camshaft actuators to eliminate any VVT issues," said Boeglin. Every JASPER Remanufactured Engine is subjected to strict, high-quality processes:
