    Default Damn That Wild Hair....

    Decided to do the external slave upgrade (PITA getting it good with the internal)
    So, I decided as long as I have the trany out (AX15), gonna do a rebuild.

    AND as long as I'm doing that, I decided to rebuild the TCase too.
    ...........and ordered a SYE.

    will have to make a thread as I go.

    I found a .pdf manual.
    Like 38 pg + the local library has digital manuals.

    ...but if yours is paper copy, I may swing by and check it out

    Do you have a link to your copy?
    ...like a Google drive copy



    I've gone through both of these versions
    ...as well as a couple YouTube (6 part each) teardown and rebuild.
    But, since I haven't touched the inside of a tranny since high school... and that was a late 60's 3 speed,
    I'd prefer to read up as much as I can

    Help me Steve Help me....

    So I pulled the tranny and started breaking it down (pulled the Adapter Housing and Gear Case).

    This piece was in the Adapter Housing side ~ What the What is it?
    ..............more importantly, where does it go when I put it all back together?

    It is an oil restriction, goes in the housing to limit the flow of oil back into the main body of the tranny. Not sure if it is really needed as mine has been sitting on my bench for the past year since I forgot to reinstall it when I did mine. It just presses into the housing, I believe in the rear to keep more gear oil by the shift mechanism.

    Truth!
    Harder yet is going to be getting my balls right...

    ...does the fsm differentiate which pin and ball is what?
    The 2 that I have only let's you know they need to be grabbed with a magnet.
