Tranny, dist., hubs

Going to be rebuilding the tranny shortly, as well as generally going over the Sammie. Read a post a while back (can't find it now) about replacing the O-ring on the distributor (mines leaking a little). How do I go about this the correct way? Just unbolt the whole thing and swap the 0-ring? Don't want to mess with the timing.
How demanding is it to regrease the front hubs?
Getting a factory manual with the rebuild kit anyway, but curious about it now.

Thats about how its done, make sure you dont spin the distributor gear or you will have to retime the thing. You are better off to do it anyway since it may be a pain in the butt to get the dist gear to line up with the cam gear once you pull it out.

Re: Tranny, dist., hubs

replacing the o-ring is relatively easy. All you do is unbolt it and replace the o-ring and then bolt it back up. Be sure that you do not turn anything around while you do this. After you bolt it back up, start the truck and see if she's firing in time. if not undo the 12mm bolt and turn the distriutor around until the timing is right. (I may get my ass kicked here as this is my experience and how I did it...no problems since for me)

greasing the front hubs isn't that hard to do. There are two sets of bolts you need to undo. The ones that hold the hub onto the end of everything and the other ones that hold the clutch on(the cap part of it). first unbolt the ones that hold everything on and carefully remove that hub. pull it towards you and then place it on it's side, as if it were still attached to the truck. next, remove the cap bolts and slide the clutch part off. now you can grease it all up, but don't over grease it. put everything back in exactly the same spot you removed it from and put it back on your truck.

an easy way to remember the exact position of everything it to use a magic marker. mark the part you remove and the part you are removing it from. that way when it comes time to put it all back together all you need to do is line up the magic marker points......

run into any trouble and I can talk you through it over ICQ.
