T-case Speedo Gear Sleeve HELP!!! (UPDATE)

OK ya'll know the little sleeve that hold in the speedo gear right?
Any trick on getting it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The friggin thing is seized in the hole and will not come out.....I've ALWAYS had problems with them and thought one of you out there in ZukLand would have an easy way to share with me.


Right, like I could pull it out with a pair of pliers.. [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img].

***Well I went back out a couple of hours later and with my "BEST" pair of Vise Grips managed to get it out. it was tuff but it came out with a little help ...***

Re: T-case Speedo Gear Sleeve HELP!!!

Hey Danny, I used a pair of vice grips how they use the pliers in your pic. I removed the adjusting screw from the vice grips and screwed in a slide hammer. Worked good. If you dont have a slide hammer just try tapping the vice grips with a regular hammer

Re: T-case Speedo Gear Sleeve HELP!!!

Heat the aluminum around the sleeve with a propane torch
and the squirt some penetrating oil (WD40,Liquid Wrench,
etc.)around the sleeve,then try the pliers again.You might
have to repeat this process several times before the sleeve
comes loose.Beware that there's an O-ring around the
out side of the sleeve and a small oil seal inside it.You
might have to replace these if you get carried away with
the torch.

I have torched them and melted wax down them before and that worked for me. Just a thought. TOM

Re: T-case Speedo Gear Sleeve HELP!!!

If you are working with a "virgin" t case the above suggestions should work. However if your luck runs like mine, and the T case was prievously worked on by some shade tree mechinic he could have set it in with JB weld. [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] I had a t case that was done to. Never could get the sleeve out, so I got another case from the boneyard and started back at square one.
