Greasy Hands Garage

12/8/2021 – Taking advantage of the remaining warm weather, I pushed the transmission out onto the shop approach for cleaning. It was quite oily from various leaks from assorted places like valve covers, etc. It was also oily inside the bell housing but I don’t know why. I cleaned inside and outside with Castrol cleaner and a couple brushes. A water hose and spray attachment made getting the soap and yuk off so it now looks almost as good as it did when I got it from TWS. A new throwout bearing is on order so I knew the old one had to come out and be pressed off the fitting so the new one could go on. I kind of remembered that getting the new one back on the shaft and installing the pivot point for the bracket pushed by the slave cylinder was really hard. But since It obviously had to come off eventually, I took it off.

Just for practice I tried to put it back on with no luck at all. There are literally 5 pieces that have to be held together while trying to get the bracket reattached to the pivot point. Very difficult. The instructions shed a little lite on the issue. The pivot bolt (2) has to come out. That is fine but I wonder what that special tool looks like and why is it needed? Guess I will find out. I finally read the instructions and got it back together. No problem if you do it right.
