tranny issues

anyone have ideas as to what is going on. shifting into 2nd it grinds slightly or clacks (best description of the noise) also does this in third but not as bad. I have a second tranny it does the same thing. I replaced the bearings and sincros. still does it have tried 90 wt gear oil, lucas,and synthetic. it shifts best with synthetic.

Re: tranny issues

It sounds like the shift bushing. It should have been included in your transmission kit, but when it is worn the transmission will clank.

Re: tranny issues

I used the roadless gear kit with sincros and tail shaft bushing I dont recall a bushing in the kit other than the tail shaft bushing but it has been a while I guess I could look thru the old parts

Re: tranny issues

Hey szki272...

If you do reshearch on the tranny bearing kits you'll find that MOST vendors say complete when in reality they lack the needle bearings that go on (sround) the shaft bushings... I found that to be the case for most vendors. I settled for the PetroWorks tranny bearing kit and it came with all of the bearings (needle and ball) BUT had to pop for the tailshaft bushing to complete the kit. I would also reccomend getting at least 1 synchro ring while you're at it... they're relatively inexpensive and first is usually showing wear.

L8R,
