So here's the story:
I called the nearest salvage yard (1.5 hours away). They said they have a 3910. I stop on my way passing by to check it out. Looks good, very little wear. When I came back with the truck / trailer to get it, I noticed that the bell housing has a chunk broken out of it about the size of my hand. It's down low near the front radiating out from the two 3/4 mounting holes. The tractor was a former American Lincoln sweeper unit. I assume some part of the sweeper mounted to those holes and caused the bell housing to break.
Finding a trans / rear has not been easy, and I was already there, so I really wanted to get this figured out while I was there. The yard owner and I came up with a plan that I would take an other transmission as well to use for the case and swap out the gears from the good transmission with the broken bell housing.
It turns out that the transmission that I was going to use for just the case was full of water, froze, and has a big crack along the bottom.
I have since completely torn down the 3910 transmission. The gears and bearings are in very good condition; after all, how much abuse could a sweeper get?
Long story short, I have a really nice set of internal components and I just need a good case to put them in. Chances are, the same salvage yard has something that will work.
