Re: Transmission removal

Thanks for all the suggestions. I ended up drilling a 2" hole in the adapter plate. The 1/2" steel was loads of fun to cut thru, lots of cutting oil helped . Of course the bolts were safety wired and about 2" below the hole. So, with a custom bent wrench and a long Dremel tool to cut the wire away I got the job done.

The flange was solidly rusted to the transmission shaft so I'm glad I didn't try to force it.

Mike

Re: Transmission removal

I suppose it is some sort of sickness. But I really enjoy the work.

Re: Transmission removal

Glad it worked out for you. When reinstalling it use some good marine grease on the pilot shaft like it should have been done by previous installer. Will make it much easier to remove the next time there's an issue.

Re: Transmission removal

A better lubricant for this type of application (high pressure, metal to metal, probable moisture, possible high temp) would be molybdenum disulfide grease;

Re: Transmission removal

Isn't "Tef-Gel" another go-to for this sort of thing?

Re: Transmission removal

With all due respect, I disagree.
From TEF-GEL - Ultra safety systems - Home page
Quote:
1. The function of Tef-Gel in eliminating dissimilar metal corrosion is the elimination of electrolytes from entering the interface of the metallic surfaces. Tef-Gel paste contains 40% PTFE powder and 0% volatile solvents, no silicones or petroleum solvents to evaporate, which would leave voids for electrolytes to be drawn into creating a galvanic cell. When both surfaces are coated and mated with Tef-Gel there are no voids for electrolytes (saltwater) to be drawn in by capillary action over extended periods of time.
...
2. The function of Tef-Gel in eliminating seizing galling and friction welding of stainless steel, inconel, and other nickel alloys.
I used to use Molly Grease when assembling driveline components on motorcycles. At the time, there was quite a debate about it vs marine grease (much like crimping vs soldering), but the final conclusion is that Molly Grease was the appropriate lube for the conditions stated in my prior post.

Re: Transmission removal

Now you can move the 2 inch hole to a better location so it will be more useful next time.
