tranny bearing replacement

can the tailshaft bearing be replaced without dropping the tranny. do you just need to remove the tail housing or is it easier to drop the whole thing. I have a run in less than a week and the bearing isnt sounding too good.

Re: tranny bearing replacement

i think it's easier to drop the whole tranny. it's not really that hard. it's a lot easier if you just leave the trasfer case in. at least that's how i would do it

Re: tranny bearing replacement

Pull the tranny, split the case, replace necessary bearings. Did my first set the other day. I'd say the whole process is less than 4 hours. If you have a small press (I don't) it will go much quicker

Re: tranny bearing replacement

I have got to do this to my tranny soon. I am procrastinating big time to keep from having to do it. I think I will split mine and put in a whole new set of bearings and maybe syncronizers. Why do I want to make more work for myself?

Re: tranny bearing replacement

i recently rebuilt my tranny myself and here is what i learned if any of this helps.
-buy the suzuki factory service manual, it's worth the money (zukboys has it on cd-rom for $29.99 or $99.99 for the manuel and a real nice center console)
-check your input shaft to make sure the tip of it is not worn out
-check the clutch
-replace the pilot bearing and throwout bearing (they are cheap and you don't want to pull the tranny again to replace them later)
-be very carefull to keep everything in order and in the proper orientation. (if you put the ring that shifts between 5TH and reverse in backword it will pop out of 5Th... don't ask, i just know this)
-there is a bolt in the side of the tailsection (just like the shifter bolt), remove this before pulling the tail section off, and put it back in after the trans is back together again.
-there is a countergear and shaft that go into a hole in the tailsection, make sure the locating thing on the shaft as well as the locating tab on the washer both go down into the slot.
-if you take out the dogteeth for 5TH/reverse make sure you put them back in the same direction, one side is shorter than the other

most of this i learned from the great people at hawk stricktly suzuki (thanks guys, if it weren't for them i would be walking)

good luck
