Got the countershaft disassembled, cleaned, and put back together today. Unfortunately I did it wrong and have to take it back apart soon
Other side of the housing emptied out and cleaned:
Had to rent a bearing puller and slide hammer to get the countershaft end bearing out:
Removing the lock nut:
Old synchros, they look great to me
The new hub and synchro:
Cleaned everything in a parts washer. One of the sleeves for the needle bearing was seized, and I ended up just leaving it alone.
In the above image, the second bearing from the top didn’t get replaced even though I have a replacement in the rebuild kit I’m going to pull it back apart and change that out.
Also, I’m not able to get the new hub to seat and click into a gear by hand. It’s being stopped by the new synchro snap rings Does it just need to be broken in? Or is it improperly installed? The old one just had a nice satisfying click and would jump into place.
