OK,

It is back in the garage.....and I have a beverage and calmed down a little bit.

So I have found a ring gear locally for only $33.00 and I am pretty sure I will be able to have my buddy mount it for me.

Just need to break it all down now.

I have read a few threads about re builds, but haven't found the answer I am looking for.

Will I need to drain the transmission before unbolting it from the engine? And if so does someone have a good link to a thread about draining and removing the tranny?

I'd drain it first. Eliminate any fluid spills or mess...

Hey it's a boat... labor of love... you've done a bunch to this boat... you'll have a sweet ride when it's done.. timing stinks... but I would drain the transmission to avoid mess - change the damper plate trans filter as long as you have it apart.

also if you're taking that all out - maybe changing the rear main seal may be a good idea not sure of the steps but as long as everything this is of? what do the experts say.

I bet PO never maintained starter and may have not engaged and started chewing up flywheel..

OK,

well I am off to a good start. Have the engine jacked up and supported. Removed the rear mounts, and starter, as well as all the wiring and hose in the way.

I was able to get the bell housing started but can't seem to break it free from the output shaft.

Any thoughts ideas on how to pull these two apart?

Well I am back from my business trip and no further ahead.

The bell housing will not come loose. I am able to move the top no problem. The dowels are free. But it seems to still be attached at the bottom.

Does anyone have a schematic or manual of how this should come apart. I am really stuck as to why it's not coming off.

HELP!!!!

The shaft shaft from the transmission maybe holding it place. Also a diagram I have in the clymers manual shows a bolt on the opposite side of the bell hose - forward of the flywheel. The diagram shows typical

Thanks Mike,

Unfortunately I am still at a loss??????

I gave up trying to remove the bell housing and transmission together and started working on removing the transmission from the bell housing.

I have it split off, but I can't seem to get it to come free. I seem to be still hung up on one of the studs.

there is no room to back them off all the way, does anyone have a trick to getting some leverage on the transmission with out damaging it? I seem to be gouging it with my pry bars and am worried about damage.

Use a hoist to see if you can get it out of the bind it is in.

FINALLY!!!!

was able to break the transmission free. Had to pull out the big guns, unfortunately did a bit of damage, but hopefully nothing that can't be fixed or replaced.

The output shaft was lodged in the damper plate. Which I also broke.

I'll have some pictures up shortly of all the carnage.......

But now I have another question: How do I stop the flywheel from spinning to remove the bolts?
