I did speak with Mike today and he has lots of them for parts etc.

However, if you have to go deep into a rebuild, it gets expensive quickly.

Also swapping in a used cluster gear from another trans is certainly a roll of the dice- the cluster and 1,2,3 all wear-in together, so popping in a random used cluster gear should be done with a quiet prayers and possibly some incense.

If the 70MT is a Warner, and known good, that is probably the best path and easiest by far.

Here's the pic. Looks like a Warner to me, brass synchros. JT68 what do you say?

Good job, that's a warner. Be aware they DO have the same counter gear shaft issues as the earlier 4-speeds, so it is prudent to check the shaft and replace if necessary.

Either way it's a much better starting point than a servo box with a broken cluster gear. Well done!

Hello
I have a good cluster gear for a 1600 with the shaft. It came out of a warner box. Contact me @ datsundon@aol.com
