  • Sherman Trans Hole Template
  • Does anyone have the template for cutting the hole in the side of the transmission for the shifter handle to come out of?
    Looking to purchase, rent or borrow the template if you have one.

  • I did a hupp. And it turned out really nice. Found the dimensions and made a paper template. Probably got the information from smith old ford website. Not sure though.

  • I don't trust a template or measurements to do more than drill a small pilot hole to figure out where the real hole needs to be. At least when measuring the actual transmission you are installing it removes the error of having a template or measurements for the wrong transmission. Seems like the instructions for installing the Sherman said to wait and determine final size and location of the hole after the Sherman was installed in the tractor.

  • This is how I did mine in a 51 side distributor 8N. This is for the overdrive version

    to find where to drill the hole for the handle, put the Sherman in the case with a couple bolts to hold it. Take a pencil and rolling it around the shifter shaft pencil a circle on inside of bell housing. Drill in center of circle with progressively bigger holes, then take an air die grinder and a good stone and enlarge the hole to size needed.

  • The homemade template in the manual section is for a Sherman hi/low which has a different hole location then a simple Sherman step up.
