Once again I failed to check tolerances and limits. I didn’t do that the first time either; I think it’s because I don’t really understand if I’m making the measurement correctly, and if the tolerance is out of spec I don’t really know what I’d do about it
Notes from the rebuild:
- 30mm socket for countershaft nut.
- Countershaft nut *has* to be replaced next time.
- There was yellow-black grime on the inside of the case, and maybe a couple mg’s of metal filings stuck to the magnet.
- I didn’t clean anything, except to wipe down where needed.
- Having a hydraulic press was awesome
- Having my own bench vice and impact driver was awesome
- I put way too much hondabond on the case last time. This time I tried to use a little less.
- The carbon-synchrotech synchros looked great. Just a little worn, nicely broken in. No chunks missing.
Ok, at this point you know the drill: pop the thing open, kick off the old synchros, slap on the new ones, slam it all back together.
Get a clean work area:
Start making it a dirty work area:
Get a nutcracker and split the case open:
Make it a really messy work area:
Yadda yadda yadda
I was doing this part blindfolded:
