88 Special Posted August 10, 2005 Share Posted August 10, 2005 Hello, new forum looks good, easy on the eyes. I am rebuilding a suffix A gearbox (first trans rebuild for me) using the green LR manual and have a couple of questions: 1. In the manual on page 37-4, Bell Housing, 37.12.07, step 22, says to torque the layshaft securing bolt to 50 ft-lbs. Now if you go to page 37-9, Layshaft, 37.20.19, step 25, it says to torque the layshat securing bolt to 60ft-lbs. What is the correct torque? 2.On page 37-11, Main shaft assembly, Mainshaft, rear end, step 46 says to fit the first speed gear. Ok, in the "DATA" section on the bottomof page 37-12, it calls for ".004-.008 End float on the first speed gear". How do you adjust the First Speed Gear End Float? I have less than .004. Thank you for your comments Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
