Well, it back to some well deserved maintenance to the old "stick mixer".
Now that it has it's own new dog house to reside in, my wife doesn't like the dog messing on the floor. :oops:
So it is time to drop both trannys and fix the leaks.
So this weekend I got after it.
Even though I don't have heat yet, It was still nice to work in a dry well lit area.

The Mrs. kept the warm coffee flowing and a small heater took the chill off.
This is what I have so far.

Only thing left is removal of bell house bolts on main box,
And the four bolts holding up aux.
Had to pickup tranny jack today to expidite removal.

Stretch - Having fun now aren't you! When you get ready to put the short shaft between the main and auxiliary transmission back in, give me a call and I'll share a secret with you to make it much easier and a lot less chance of pinching your fingers. Stan

Stan,
Don't be giving away all the trade secrets. I had to learn the hard way, none of the "old timers" I worked with would show anyone their tricks. Now I guess we are the "old timers".

You know what i found interesting is that i don't think either gear box has been apart.
Notice the nice clean paint on the output shaft flange. paint isn't even broken,
If i remember correctly on the build sheet the original color was green for the whole truck.
I realize that the cab has been reworked, but both gear boxes have green paint underlay.

I think when Dane got the truck it was a off shade of blue.

Gonna crack the box open tonight, just got by gasket and seal kit (#K-1782) for the T905.
If that all looks good, Ill just clean it and reseal it. Oh yeah and rebush the clutch shafts..they have some wear.
But I think the 8341D aux. may need a bearing or two,. we shall soon find out. :shock:

Stretch - depending on the age of the 8341D aux., that may have loose needle bearings on the main shaft. The later edition used caged needle roller bearings. If you decide to pull it down, be ready to catch and account for all the rollers.

Stan... gonna drop the aux. box over at Frey. The main box I will open up and inspect tomorrow.

I have the gasket kit for the T905, seals on order, but i also have new clutch shafts and bushings ordered. The shafts are quite worn, bushings were almost through.
New clutch brake and while I got it open...the"director of finance" gave approval for a new clutch.

The clutch is not that old, but if you remember, when I did the transplant last year I noted that one of the clutch fingers was broken. I welded it up and it still is holding, but the spring is week on that finger, and with the weld job...it always nags me that it may not always hold up. So...we will replace it

Also on the agenda is to hook up the tanks under the battery boxes and remove the frame tank.
Just want to clean up the "lines" on the truck.

I post more photos tomorrow.

Let me know if I can help in any way. Been doing those trannys for nearly 40 years now. When I retire this fall, I'm thinking of maybe doing some component rebuilds in my shop. You bring me a transmission, engine, steering box, etc. and I repair or overhaul it, then you come and pick it up when it's done. That way I don't have to do the bull work of remove/install.
