 wondering why the guy helping me did not tell me I would have an issue with 
 my case.  I know that he uses an old split tranny housing as a fixture to 
 run engines on a stand, so he would have been familiar with any issues.  He 
 is out of town right now, so I can't ask him till Monday.  I also do not 
 know what type of tranny I have (type 1 or 3). >>

There's really no difference between the 2 types of trannies. The differences 
that do exist are the shift rod (the dimple is on the bottom for a t-3), and 
the nose cone due to the t-3 using a different mount. There might also be a 
gearing change, but I think most of the swing axle trannies used the same gear 
ratios. Other than those things, they're interchangable. Now if you were 
swapping the complete trans with the axles and tubes, then you'd find a few other 
differences between the 2 trannies (t-3s use long axles with longer splines than 
a t-1 does). Your parts guy probably already had his clearanced long ago, and 
probably forgot about it. I hope this helps.
