Question for cmyles/tranny experts
Posted by Slyde [Email] (more from Slyde) on Thu, 19 Dec 2019 15:43:51
Hi, so the 5 sperd has given me that sign. Refusal to engage gear. After babying the vehicle back home..these are the symptoms:
1st gear..hardly moves
.feels like something hanging up, then a jerk. 3rd gear I can move the car...reverse..sometimes barely nefore a violent jerk. So I am dighing the old factory transmission tools out of the garage. I havent rebuilt a box in over 15 years.
I did not buy the dial indicator/jig(over 400.00 just for the jig if i can recall correctly) to measure backlash. I simply changed the pinion bearings and reused existing shims.
Question..how necessary is it to check for backlash?
If so, should i purchased a dial indicator and rig a jig?
Also, one tool that i regret was the shifting pin remover...excellent tool.
i wonder if someone can send measurement so i can make one up..or is there a source that manufacturers them?
thanks for any help
