Awesome awesome link. Thank you. Anyways I am going to start documentation of what i am doing. Good first post. Now go make an intro thread.
Anyways. I started with this.
It needs a rebuild. I was told 3rd gear synchro is probably bad and it gets stuck going into reverse sometimes.
I took down the extension housing and didn't really document it. It is very straight forward if you follow the FSM. This is what you will end up with.
Next you remove the snap ring holding on 6th gear and the synchros and such. This is the method used in the FSM.
Watch out. This little **** will shoot off quick fast and in a hurry. Measure then put on the snap ring sheet. I used tape so it wouldn't float away.
This is what it looks like once you find where it shot to.
Next you remove the interior shift lever and interlock sleeve.
Now we have the substitute for SST 49 N017 2A1. A harmonic balancer puller does this job well, better for this than pulling harmonic balancers if you ask me. I covered it with a rag so pieces of the synchronizer clutch would not fly everywhere.
The syncro clutch hub is bagged in a smaller bag, then there are the synchro (the brass thing), the syncro ring (the silver ring), and then the shift fork. These are all going into the bag labeled 6th gear.
6th gear, needle bearings and the washer. The washer is magnetized. Also, there is a small pin on the shaft where the washer locks on to. DO NOT LEAVE THAT THERE. Put it in your 6th gear bag or you will lose it. I searched for that bastard as long as I did the magical flying snap ring.
My 6 speed sans 6th gear.
