New Transmission – First Drive

By March 23, 2019January 7th, 2023No Comments

A few weeks back- I noticed the transmission was “throwing out of gear” during hard acceleration.

When I got around to pulling the transmissions out- I notice the bellhousing was literally broken… and- most of the mounting ears were broken off.

While the transmission was being shipped to TCI for repairs, I decided to replace the rear main seal. Here are the parts and tools used.

Here is a video of popping the new transmission’s cherry. Includes a little bit of boost thrown in there.
