Well I have been driving number 14 since last spring as a 2wd edge but winters coming so I figured I might as well do the swap. I have a bad 4wd trans out of 17 so I need to do the output shaft swap on a low mile 2wd trans I have sitting around. I figured I would take a few pics along the way..
Here's the 2 transmissions...
Next the tear down
What you see after you remove the pump/bellhousing
Releasing the bands The intermediate band didn't even have the locknut tight
The first problem I noticed was the input shaft was stuck in the front drum(overdrive) Then when I pulled the drum out the race for the thrust bearing fell out in 2 pieces
This is the center support with the input speed sensor. There is a large snapring and a small torx bolt hidden under the valvebody holding it in.
Intermediate band and clutch drum
The rear planetary has a large snap ring holding it
Then you get to this snap ring that holds in the output shaft
Here's the parts from the bad trans.
Basically the same deal with the good trans
Here's the 2 output shafts side by side
