np435 rear output shaft question

I have this NP435 from a ford 4x4 application that I want to install in my CJ. I noticed that the rear output shaft and bearings slide out about 3/4" when I lifted the transmission today. I did lift it by the rear output shaft so that I could see the pattern for purchasing an adapter.

Is it normal for the NP435 rear output shaft and bearings to move?

You may be able to see the retainer behind the shop towel in this picture.



Thanks,
Mike

Re: np435 rear output shaft question

I don't think it should from looking at the Service Manual, it's hard to tell. Email me at: [email protected]

and I'll email you the PDF.

Re: np435 rear output shaft question

Here is a link to the manual provided on the net. It turns out that I had this manual "stashed" away and forgot about it.

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.
