Default Changing quill bearing, 97 SL2

Has anyone actually changed their own quill bearing on 5 speed? I'm tearing mine down now. Are the special tools required, or is there a work around? How much does the quill bearing run, and is it a dealer item only?

I'm in deep, discovered the leak while replacing the engine. Won't put it back together with a leak there. Got a factory DOHC engine from Saturn.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

There are special tools needed to press the quill out and in. If you are inovative enough you could probably make something up to get by. One of the special tools though is a case support to stop the case from cracking while pressing the quill out.
If you are able to get the trans to a Saturn store it may be worth while to see how much they would charge you to do the quill if you brought the trans in loose or even just the front case half and got them to change the quill.

To get to the quill bearing you pretty much have to disassemble the transaxle. There's some good info on that here. While you're at it, you should get the diff pin welded as well.

Yeah, I know everything has to come out of the trans before the quill is accessable.

I do have a mig welder at work. I'll see what the diff looks like.
