Variation B: This should be done before any gears are in case. It is next to impossible to remove upper fifth gears with a puller, so I drop the countergear, push the upper gear train in the case, and cut the bearing race in to spots 180 degrees apart. I have some ideas, one of them is to have a machine shop to make and install double threaded steel bushings with a small shoulder on the back side of the hole, threaded in and held in place with industrial adhesive. Some bearings simply drop into place. Use this method for both synchro assemblies.
You can see there is not much seal left. Step 30: Slide On Fourth-Gear Synchro Ring Install the new fourth-gear synchro ring. I recently several months ago had my 1985 258 professionally rebuilt. It eliminated a thrust bearing between second and third gear to tighten up on endplay issues and ditched alloy main cases in favor of nodular iron cases, which yielded a 50 percent increase in tensile strength. The Second Design Super T10 added 26 splines to the input shaft and 32 splines to the output shaft to combat twisting. T5 Assembly From the Ground Up In my shop, we deburr all the gears in the T5s we build.
Right: Later units use a ball. The V8 F-body bell housing will bolt onto a Chevy small block engine or an L6 engine block. This cryo treatment will add 30% in component strength. Especially on Ford Triton engine spark plug thread repairs. It is important to understand that Borg- Warner, the manufacturer of the T5, was notorious for making unannounced and undocumented changes to production transmissions.
Rear Countershaft bearing has no visible marking. Or is it a torque load like you've trying read? Step 4: Remove Mainshaft Bearing Some front bearings will slide off the input shaft; others may have to be pried off. What ideas do you have? If you look at bearing mating surfaces of this World Class T-5 countershaft, there are virtually no wear issues. Border Parts at Spring Valley, California would be another possible source. For reassembly however you'll need access to a press, bushing driver, calipers and a dial indicator. The one - two syncro is a little different due to the main shaft being in the way, but the process is the same. Do not be fooled into thinking you can adapt the other T5s into a high-output, V-8 application.
The oiling funnel is a different story. Step 13: Prep for Mainshaft Removal Professional Mechanic Tip The 0. Rebuilding Super T10 4-Speeds As mentioned before, the Super T10 disassembles are similar to the T10 and Muncie 4-speed. They both are slightly too large in diameter. There is a reason I placed this little bit of information first. Step 12: Install Reverse Gear Install the reverse sliding gear, forward speedo gear snap ring, speedo drive gear, and rear speedo gear snap ring.
The paper-cut gasket would suffer from torque and twisting, flexing between the transmission and transfer case, loosening split ring lock washers on bolts and poor gasket material. Tooth pitch is also a consideration. Step 6:Insert Input Shaft into Case Drop the input shaft in place without the front bearing. The thickest ring will remove all endplay. I have attached a huge video file 32 mb of my input shaft movement. There was only one case bolt stripped out.
A close-up look at the output shaft shows evidence of excessive wear. He's smart as can be and coming along now. Step 21: Remove Countergear Parts and Press Off Rear Bearings Professional Mechanic Tip Remove the four countergear retainingplate bolts, the plate, and shim. When down all the way the snap-ring groove will be exposed. Not much of a way to verify a completely successful mating of the Tail Housing and Main Body.
Now that the T5 is more than 20 years old, some units may have already been rebuilt or assembled with a variety of parts. Ford kept both the T10 and Toploader in production at the same time. Should have figured something was going to be wrong with it. The front of the cover is to the left. Apply sealant to the pin bore.
For this story, we took apart a basic 3. Weigh the kit cost against the cost of a bellhousing. Step 16:Install 3-4 Synchro Assembly Professional Mechanic Tip Install the preassembled 3-4 synchro assembly. We'll also install a G-Force output shaft not pictured. With some ratios, you are able to remove the input shaft with the front bearing attached from the inside, allowing you to firmly press it off using a hydraulic press. If you're asking whether I would use it, likely not my first choice. Customer notified if these parts are in need of replacement.
B Fifth-Gear Synchro Retainers The left fifth-speed synchro retainer is a standard T5 type. Use assembly lube to hold them in place. There have been more than 260 variations of the T-5 produced over its production life. Step 2:Insert Countergear in Case With the main case facing down, insert the countergear. When you separate these components, the rear reverse idler gear may fall out. As of this writing, there are more than 260 T5 assembly part numbers.
