Do you have a service manual? It should be in there. Here is the online manual site.

Does this help any?

Unless you are doing a stock resto for show points, you might want to consider getting rid of the vacuum assist. For many years, the aftermarket offered a kit of parts called a "vacuum shift eliminator", which converted the car to straight mechanical linkage. After installation, the trans shifted quite well. These kits still turn up occasionally on ebay.

One of the vintage specialty parts vendors has promised a revival of the kit, but it is just vaporware so far.

If your fab skills are up to the job, you could likely make a suitable substitute yourself.

Unfortunately, 1939 was a one-year-only setup because the trans changed significantly for 1940. I believe 40-48 all take the same conversion kit.

You might want to contact C of the 40s to ask when (or if) they expect to have the kit available for shipment. If I find it offered on any other vendor's site, I will post here with the info.
