Title: worn out transmission
Post by IAN - 944ONLINE on Jul 30th, 2012 at 3:46pm
gentlemen -
please remember to replace your  old gear oil with something new and good -
Redline - or Royal purple is good

here is one sign of a worn out transmission
this is the main support bearing for the pinion gear -
\its the one that will take most of the load -
this transmission was filthy inside - and you can see that the OUTER race for the bearing has been turning in the case  - its worn the case to the point that the bearing can be installed by hand !!
so the customer that sent us his transmission for a rebuild must now pay for a good used housing and all the shimming that that will require
