Tranny Rebuild Experiences??

Anybody out there do a bearing overhaul on their tranny?? From the looks of it it should be relatively simple. Looks like all I need is the new parts, an arbor press and a bearing puller. Seems like all of the play in the bearings is set by feeler guages. Is this correct?

Any experiences with this?

I'm leaning towards the PW bearing kit $195 with all the ball bearings and the needle bearings included. Other vendors that I night have missed??

TIA,

You about got it. Took me about 3 hours first time with a gear puller. Next time it will be with a press. Nothing critical in adjustments. Add a good set of snap ring pliers to the list

Re: Tranny Rebuild Experiences??

Billybob, I did this for the first time a couple months ago. I'm a desk jockey, and didn't know a lot about gettin my hands dirty before the Sammy. I was fairly surprised how easy it was. I took my time (a couple weekends). After doing it once, I'm sure I could do it again in just a few hours. Used the Rocky Road kit and a local machine shop to do the pressing. Hardest part for me was clearing that stupid crossmember to get the tranny out. I should've made a small cutout for extra clearance (read it on this board somewhere). Decent snap rng pliers definitely helped too. Good luck!
