Re: np435 rear output shaft question
So I studied the rebuild manual and studied the transmission and think that I understand what is happening.
I do not have tailshaft housing on the transmission at this time. There is a snap ring which apparently holds the output bearing on the output shaft. There is another snap ring on the output bearing itself, I can not tell what this ring does.
It appears as if the tailshaft housing holds the output shaft in place. With the housing removed, there is nothing holding the the output shaft in tight against the transmission case.
Well, I am going to purchase the Novak Dana300 adapter. If it does not work, then I'll have a cheap adapter for sale...
I took the cover off of the transmission, for the first time since purchasing it. Everything looks real good inside, I did not see any chipping or solids. I was real pleased.
