I purchased a used transmission for my ongoing 57 TR 3 "rescue car" project. I would to be able to identify whether it is full synchro or not and when it may have been manufactured. Until it is opened up for inspection, the only thing to go by may be the numbers on the casing. Photos are attached. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Wayne

That's a 3 synchro box, from after April 59 (TS50000).

Thank you Randall!

The 27814 number should put it in early 1958, probably February. It won't have the bulge for the later starter; but should have the dipstick on top for checking oil level (unless the top cover has been swapped).
