I am putting a new tranny in my '98 prostar 190. I took the old one out, so I know how it is all supposed to go together, but are there any pointers to make sure that things line up properly, work smoothly, etc.? Any help is greatly appreciated.

What's the deal with the transmission swap?

Take some pictures of the motor with it out. I'd love to see that!

Are you putting the same transmission (1:1 or 1.5:1.5) back in or going from a standard to a slot?

(1:1 or 1.5:1.5)

Tim is this a typo? I thought their was 1:1 and 1:1.5. I'm not sure how you get 1.5:1.5??? :confused:

Make sure you line up the shaft with the transmission at the plate that connects the 2 together. There should be hardly any clearance there. Also, make sure the shaft evens out inside the journal. While you have it all apart I would look at your damper plate, it sure is easy to replace that while you are at it now.

Ooops,

I meant is he removing and reinstalling a 1:1 or or 1:1.5 or removing a 1:1 and replacing it with a 1:1.5

I am replacing a bad 1:1 transmission with a rebuilt 1:1 transmission. Everything is going to remain the same as before. I just don't want to forget to do something simple when I'm putting it all back together.

Sluggo, How many hours did you get out of the old one. New Tranny in a 98 boat? You must really run that baby. :steering:

I wouldn't sweat it. It is not hard at all. The transmission is easy to realign, thanks to the 4 studs that protrude from the bell housing. There is nothing tricky about this process, I have done it many times. If you are replacing the tranny, you should go ahead and replace the damper as well. They are about $100. I have a rebuilt tranny on my 84 S&S with about 150 hours on it and its still running just fine.

Like the others say, is easy. I had to pull my trans out to replace the pressureplate. It took two weeks to get the plate. It took 4 hours to take apart, two hours to put back together. Real easy.
