  • Changing 4-speed tranny seal...pics

    Finally got tired of cleaning up the oil spot everyday and while I have week off, am changing out the tranny main oil seal, taking pics along the way. If anyone sees anything I am doing wrong or notices something I haven't, please yell..........will keep posting pics as I get further along.

              Is that a smoked bearing and a crispy race I'm looking at? Right after the seal removal photo.

                In the pic you are showing? The pic you are showing is just the 4th gear seal after I finally worked it loose enough to get it out.

                The biggest issue I have found so far is the bearing cage and bearings. When I pulled the five finger, all the bearings fell out and I noticed a bent retainer plate.

                The bearing face on the hub looks fine. Hoping the indy I use will have the bearings and a new retainer plate. If not, will have to mail order.

                  You'd be better off replacing that seal with a "Super Nut" and be done with it......

                  Those seals on the output shaft suck. JAMES makes them as well. Just Google "Super Nut" and take your pick.

                  Just make sure the shaft is smooth with no burs, no matter what you decide, but the Super-Nut is the way to go, and have it last forever.
