5w71c transmission disasembly


Recommended Posts

How do you get the front cover off of the in person shaft? I've got all the bolts out and the clutch ball. Still ain't budging.


Also I can't figure out how to get the rubber boot that fits around the shifter on the shifter plate having to tear it?

The clutch pivot ball does not come off, put it back on as you found it.


Front cover? Is this...



Or do you mean the front transmission case???



Some idiot previous owner probably had it part and used a sealer. Maybe a chevy owner, they love that shit.


Put the pivot ball back on and using a socket extension push it through the clutch arm hole and hammer against the ball. Like this...




Do not ever hit the nose that projects out over the input spline.
