Tranny Rebuild Helps...

Hello out there...

Well I nursed it as long as I could... but when the 16v got installed... the tranny just wasn't happy anymore and was really starting to cry about it.... so I went out and got a rebuilding kit from PW... along with one of their super clutches....

I spoke with the guys out there and covered most of the technical details that are common to the rebuilding. Anything that youall have run into that I should know before I break into this???

TIA,

It's pretty simple. Just need a hydraulic press and some cylinders the same diameter as the inner bearing races. I took the easy way out and had my last one done at a machine shop. $30 to remove and replace all the bearings.

Re: Tranny Rebuild Helps...

I recently rebuilt my spare tranny. It was howling like a crowd of cats in 5th and a bit whiney in 1st.
It's as quoted above.
But be warned sometimes just bearings won't fix it. As in my case, 5th is still noisy, but nowhere as bad as before, but enough to make me regret the rebuild. And 1st goes VvvvVvvvVvvv.
I wish I had rebuilt my other tranny.

Re: Tranny Rebuild Helps...

I will have to rebuild mine in the future and had searched for info and found a post about the extension housing bushing. The FSM says its not replaceable but that Roadless Gear sells them. Worn ext. housing bushings allow for too much intermediate shaft play and can result in vibrations. Did the PW kit include this bushing? Hope this helps.

I don't believe that the PW kit comes with the bushing.

I've rebuilt two transmissions thus far. Both have come out quiet as can be. A;fie, you might have some damage to the gear teeth or you might have tweaked a bearing(s) when you pressed them on. Make sure that you always press the bearings on by the inner race.

Hey Jon...

Ya, PW's is aware of the bush and supplies them... what I undestand is that often the bush needs to be reamed to factory specs (too small id)... I figure that a brake cylinder hone would prolly do the trick [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Thanks for the tips on the insert/press on procedures.... I understand that the side stresses will trash a bearing quickly...hopefully the socket sets I have will fill the job... [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

I'll keep you posted,
