Well, you know things are bad when you pull the trans back from the engine and parts start to fall out! Springs and bits of springs what a mess. Flywheel surfaced tomorrow and a new clutch pivot and fork being picked up along with a new rear main seal from Cummins. I don't have much time in this right now, maybe 2hrs, the joys of a 2wd.

I have pulled a few clutches and had stuff fall out.

The first time I had this apart was about 250k ago and I had ball bearings bouncing off the floor!

In all reality, I should just pull the pan and front cover and reseal the whole bottom end.

I had that happen last year. I would do the rear main seal atleast.

I figured WTH, the trans is out the rear main is off so the pan came off next! It's much easier to pull the pan with no trans in the way. So I guess the reassembly will have to wait until Tuesday. On a positive note, the new SouthBend hydros went in super easy.

Creeper! This has been a very smooth job so far. Laying down on a creeper is very comfortable for me. Using the trans jack made pulling the trans back very easy, there was a little wiggling to get it of the dowels but after that it was gravy.

I picked up a Bone cteeper. Wow. It's really nice, but now it will take off down the driveway if I don't pick it up when I get off.
I got it used got $50. It's the standard model that sits lower.

If I worked in your driveway I would need a net to catch all the stuff that would get away from me. :)

I should have looked into this before I started this project, can the flywheel be modified to accept a full ball bearing pilot?

I did it on my 97 and it shifted with very little effort.
