I was taking some pictures of a transmission that i am in the process of rebuilding and i though that i'd make a documentary on steps to disassemble and assemble the transmission:
Step 1: Remove all bolts from the end cover and remove the end cover (this might require a rubber hammer and a little prying to get off.
Step 2: Remove the 2 nuts on the ends of the shafts, and the snap ring on the viscous coupler, next remove the roll pin in the 5th gear shift fork, now you can remove the 5th gear assembly and the viscous coupler (be careful there is a little ball bearing in the center diff shaft that the viscous coupler slides over, make sure to remove that and set it aside. At this point you can remove the transfer case output shaft also.
5th gear and viscous coupler removed
Removing output shaft
Step 3: Remove the 3 shift selector nuts, springs and balls
Step 4: Remove the bearing plate from the end of the tranny case and remove center diff
This is the bearing plate
REmove center diff
Step 5: Remove the reverse idler retaining bolt from the back side of the trans case, remove all case bolts that hold the top to the bottom.
Step 6: Carefully pry the top casing from the bottom and remove the reverse idler gear
Step 7: At this point you can remove the front differential, and the diff drive gear assembly
Step 8: Remove the roll pins on the 1-2 and 3-4 shift forks and remove the input and intermediate shaft's
Now you can remove the shift rails and go onto cleaning and measuring everything for reassembly. I will have pics of me doing the gear sets and reassembling everything in the next week. Hope this is helpful so someone out there.
