getting ready to put tranny back in questions
« on: August 31, 2012, 09:20:42 PM »
Where does the dust protector bolt to on the bell housing i forgot since when i took it off? any pictures of it on??? And the trans place told me I should flush the lines before hooking up the tranny, How do I go about doing that?


Thank you

The dust shield upper half just sits on the alignment dowels on the back of the motor (make sure both are there or the bell housing will shift and destroy the converter and flexplate!)

You can get a flush in a can from parts stores, but the fitting it comes with is often wrong. I unscrewed the fitting from the bottom of my rad and got one that fit that the can could screw onto. Beware the plastic line coming apart! That juice REALLY burns when it gets in your eyes! (squirted in around my safety goggles dang it!)

This is the one I forgot how it went. The top half is already on.

When i put the spedo cable back in the transfer case. do i need to a get a new gasket or something? the book says something about this but im not sure what it ment.

I didnt take the tranny out, so i didnt pay attention much, but they guy who did it broke his back. So I have to do it now.

The pan has holes that line up with the edge of the front of the bell. On the Speedo, was the whole plug taken out? If so, it needs to be aligned to the correct gear tooth count on the eccentric. I replace the O-ring if it's chewed up or you get a slow drip. Breaking your back is no fun. I broke 2 vertebrae years ago and they still hurt. Even worse now my right shoulder socket is broken as well as my left hip!

The TSM has some instructions on how to index the adapter.

On the piece that slides into the trans (I'm assuming you have the red plastic one) there are 3 or 4 alignment "notches" with numbers written above them. You count the number of teeth on the gear that goes into the trans (most are marked 32 or 26, etc on the gear face) and that number corresponds with the alignment mark on the plastic. On the transfercase hole there is a corresponding alignment mark so it meshes.

ok thank you!!! couple more things, dont worry ill paypal you for answering all my questions since your the only one who is.   :P The guy who took it out has a cup here with the bolts labeled to where they go, But is there a way to know what bolt goes in what hole since they are all different sizes? And Is there somewhere i can get a stud for the transfer case. I cant find it anywhere.


Thanks!?

Take another stud (are you sure it isn't in the cup with nut on it looking like a bolt?) and get one similar. Except for leaks I have run only 5 in various vehicles. (some vehicles came that way due to trans mount interference)
   I would put the bolts into the holes and they should all stick out about the same amount (1/2" to 1") for threads to catch and hold. The bottom 2 bell bolts are thicker and longer than the others intentionally.

Major problem!!!!! I dont think i lined the torque converter up right because when i bolted up the tranny. I heard a huge pop then they tranny just magically fit. But them i couldnt line up the flexplate bolts so i figured i must of ******* broke something. Would it be the oil pump or something?  >:( >:( >:( >:( :censored: :censored: :censored: :censored:

No idea if this will help but I recently mated a Trans/Engine and forgot to mark the Flex Plate to TC bolts. Turns out they were mated perfectly and only matched up one way. Had a buddy crank over the V Dampener while I tried one bolt at a time. If the second didn't 'mate' backup, pull the bolt, spin the motor to the next hole. Repeat until I could thread 2 in a row.

Pretty awkward but it worked in the end.
