We’re getting into gear…
We finally received the new low-reverse carrier and have re-started the transmission assembly.
First into the case was the output shaft, then the sprag and sun gear, followed by the low-reverse clutches (plates and frictions).
Next is the output shell, low-reverse carrier, ring gear, thurst bearing and spring clip. We already test assembled this on the bench and achieved 0.008″ of end-play…almost perfect!
Next up was rebuilding the direct clutch…
Now were ready to assemble the direct clutch into the transmission, but we’ve had another patient in the shop this week:
We should be able to finish up the fuel tank tomorrow night and then it will be back on to transmission work.
