Default Manual Trans disassembly replacement

Long story short, being stupid I split the transmission when it was unnecessary. When putting it back together, I broke an ear off the case. So I tore it down to have it heli-arc'ed back up.

So its all tore apart.

Any preventive maintenance tips or things I should do?

Ive heard about the differential pin. I think I will have that welded up solid also.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Is that different racing site yours? If so a big thumbs up to ya.

Ya I figured that pic was a hard hitter. I wasnt sure if any of the seals should be replaced or dont bother? Anything else I should look for. bearings prone to failure?

I do see it utilizes NSK bearings. So i feel a bit better about it

The trans has 207K on it. The magnet had a layer of steel grit on it. I wiped her off. Honestly for that many miles, seemed clean. But then again, its the only trans Ive had apart

while you've got it open, you can check bearings for any play, and replace any that have play in them.

Mine went bad (146k miles) and i beat it out myself, and installed it myself. You gotta have a small hand-sledge hammer though

My magnet had grease on it... took about 5 minutes to get all of the stuff off.



And if you want to replace all the seals and *****, get the transmission gasket kit p/n 21005868. It has everything.... input/output shaft nuts, bushings, gaskets, filters, shift pads, axle seals, basically everything you need.

i would consider that a "must have" item when you crack open the case...

Well the seals Im most concerned about is the input from the motor, then the outputs to the wheels.

The wheels are only $6 each so im gonna get them. now I need the one from the motor...

One quick question.

The differential. I only have one snap ring for it. Am I missing one? If there is only one which side does it go on?

I cant remember for sure. been a few days since I disassembled it and alot has happened in life since doing it.

Default Re: Manual Trans disassembly replacement

there's only one there. It goes.... CASE -> DIFFERENTIAL - SNAP RING IN BORE (its a spacer for the differential) -> CASE -> AXLE SEAL -> AXLE SEAL SNAP RING.

hope this make sense. If not, go to your local dealership and have them print out an expoded view for you.

Ok,

Which side of the differential?

The one in the bell housing or the side where the case/all the gears are?

Thanks for the help. I figured I was going to have to make my own spacer tomorrow at work! lol

the side of the biggest axle seal. In this case, its the middle case, the one that goes over all the gears.

Hey, thanks.

I kinda was guessing that side. I put it on the wrong side, and the gears are rubbing... so that explains it then!

Thanks!
