This is bad huh?

This is a picture of the input shaft into the tranny. The bearing had seized and had three balls left in it. Now what?
I guess I'll have to strip the other Zuk huh?

Re: This is bad huh?

Well If the transmission is okay other than that I would get a new pilot bearing and just reuse it. Or you could swap out the input shaft from the other trans, But as long as it is just a little rough I wouldn't worry too much.

Re: This is bad huh?

dannyl, i would drain the tranny a check for shavings i would also check the clutch plate spline to input shaft
fit if okay and no twist in splines on the shaft. OH MY
GOD!! i would reuse it we are not talking big block 500ftlb
of torque here i have reused ones on full size trucks that
had to be filed on the splines to get a new clutch on
18 wheelers that went hundreds of thousand miles after

Re: This is bad huh?

dannyl,i agree with the others,but i will add,if it cleans up use stock bearing,if not,turn the shaft and buy a bearing that will fit the new diameter of shaft.we have a bearing company 1 hour away.i would be glad to try and match one for you.ranger rick

Re: This is bad huh?

It's not the splines that are bad, it's the snub that goes in the pilot bearing.
I put the old bearing center on it and it was loose, I mean LOOSE. You can see the step in the picture a little.

Re: This is bad huh?

2nd post throw away the old pilot bearing its no good test
fit on a new one. i would still probaly reuse the shaft
unless super sloppy fit was found with a new bearing. my
2 cents worth- a new bearing will get you going i betcha.

Re: This is bad huh?

Should be no problem at all because this isn't like a chevy pilot bearing with needle bearings riding on end of transmission input shaft. If fit is really bad with new bearing can use JB Weld epoxie to fill and file to fit. With needle bearings you would still fare bearing surface then install a sleave. Most people just ignore it. Clutch wares out before pilot bearing problem unless it isn't changed with the clutch.

Re: This is bad huh?

Danny Notice I said a NEW bearing in my post.....(Grin) I had the same sort of wear on my replacment trans
from the parts rig, I have a good bearing on the motor anyway so it works fine. The old bearing race is going
to be as chewed up (or more) than the shaft so it's not a valid test. It's really up to you if you arn't happy with it swap it out.
