915 Rebuild Update

Second day (removed from the 1st day by a week or so).

http://www.pelicanparts.com/MotorCity/marcesq3/TrannyRebuild.htm

Again, if anyone has any tips that could be shared with the rest, please pass them along.

To this point, I have used regular tools, no factory thing-a-majigs, or presses. I did make one tool out of an old clutch plate.

Thanks.

Wow! All that progress from one day! Impressive.

To remove the 46mm nut, I pegged the old clutch to a wall instead of making a tool out of it. Your method might be a bit safer.

Eugene . . . you must be single . . . that is a great idea. If it's ok with you I'll add the pic, etc to the page.

Art . . . . thanks . . . I'm the one who is learning with the help of many aboard.

Now for the 2nd half . . . go Panthers . . . (Steven Davis was a Redskin so I have to root for them, closest I'll get to another SB for a while)

Guilty as charged. Here's another one. My synchro hubs were pressed on so darn tight I really wished I had the factory tool for the job. To replicate its function, I decided to sacrifice a couple of those big lock rings and some cheap wrenches by rigging up the thingamajig shown below.

A big socket fit perfectly into the gear. After a LOT of persuasion with a 3 lb sledge, they finally came off the gear. And yes, that wrench bent quite a few times... call it cold-hardening.
