Found a T73-1 Warner Gears co. transmission alongside a Model 500 Sears Roebuck motor today. I was wondering if they went together on the same piece of machinery or ?  The dirty oil tastes the same on both of them and the belt pullys both match up so   I'm guessing yes.The motor needs a spark plug and the glass gas bowl is gone but otherwise is not locked up and has been in a shed for who knows how long. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

Oil TASTE'S the same, good one! (I hope that was joke).  This for a 2 wheel tractor maybe or what is idea? Neat little drive unit, could make neat things with one of those. I'm sure one would need to be careful shifting that and at good stop.

Here's a pic of an early 30's American Austin engine and a T73-1 transmission, and a pic of a 1930 American Austin.

Personally, I find a little salt improves the flavour of used oil! That transmission looks like it would handle quite a bit of power and would be a nice choice for a lot of projects.

Funny, the old timer that taught me the taste trick still chuckles when I do it. Guess he's laughing at the specks of dirt in my teeth. I have very limited space and no need for any more 'toys'. I saw the two together in the back of a shed and just had to try and keep 'em from getting scrapped. Not too much 'want' for something like that out here but I may try and rig something up after getting the motor rebuilt. Just a few small parts and a cleaning and it should fire up. Thanks guys.

Yeah, it's a 3 speed with reverse and turns smooth. I almost always end up with some grease in my mouth during teardowns.
