Transmission (Cont.)

I finally got around to cleaning up the transmission case. When I overhauled the engine 1½ years ago, I didn't clean the transmission case. I didn't remove the seals, the output shaft or shifters and just used solvent and a brush on the outside of the case. The oil and dirt came off pretty easily. After cleaning with solvent, I then used compressed air to dry off the remaining solvent. I probably should have cleaned the case before splitting the case but I was anxious to get a look at the inner workings of the transmission.

I heard back from Mickey on Friday and the parts have been backordered but the folks at Irbit told him that he should have them by next week. I was hoping to get the transmission done before the Ural National Rally Day on June September 9th. We'll see...


  1. I will probably not bother with Ural National Rally Day this year...not quite feeling it. Did you mean September 9?
