Re: 94 Metro 5 Speed Manual Transmission Rebuild - PART 2 - Assembly

This is what my "Workbench" is beginning to look like.

I very heartily advise those who are attempting this rebuild to keep all the parts from
the Transmission in very meticulous order on a stick or a rope...

All these parts are starting to look the same to me...what a freaking complication!

Here I show how I labeled the old R Bearing - it looks just like the new one and
is hard to tell that it is "used".

Installed the new R Bearing on the Input Shaft.

Pressed it back on by using the Bearing Puller as a compressing tool - backwards, as it were.

I knew that I had to leave the Bearing Puller open far enough to let the enlarged
portion of the Input Shaft (IS) pass thru the hole in the Puller.

It all went smooth as butter - "Just like Downtown..."

I pulled the bearing right up against the Gear portion of the IS

Next comes the 3rd Gear Needle Bearings, the 3rd Gear and then the Synchronizer ring
(page 7A - 24 of the Manual).

First I have to make sure the Synchronizer Ring is properly assembled and which way it goes on.

The Manual says the synchronizer Rings for the 3rd and 4th Gears are identical.
