Transmission installation Problems

I have my transmission on my block. The only problem is it doesn't sit flushed against the block. It does sit like 0.25 inches away and I already have the front 3 bolts in. The question is it normal for the transmission to be this far away and not be misaligned to the crank and clutch? Do I have it properly installed with it all being torqued down. I'm just paranoid that it's not aligned correctly as this is my first time installing a transmission period let alone a manual transmission.

Re: Transmission installation Problems

DO NOT FORCE ANYTHING!!!! IF ANYTHING FEELS LIKE ITS GOING TO BREAK/SNAP, STOP IMMEDIATELY!!!!!



Also, don't try bolting it on one side at a time, that's exactly how you mis-align everything.

Without any bolts holding it on, you should have an average ~1/2" gap between the block/tranny when its just sitting on the dowel pins.
Than put one bolt on in the front, and one in the back. Than slowly tighten each bolt EVENLY!! Do a couple turns on the front bolt, than back, than front, than back, etc...
The gap should slowly but surely get smaller, EVENLY all around.

Re: Transmission installation Problems

Yeah, I took all the bolts out, because I don't want nothing to break. I just wasn't sure if it's suppose to go all flat together or if I had to use bolts to pull them both together.

Re: Transmission installation Problems

Found problem I think. You know the shaft in the bellhouse? The clutch doesn't slide all the way on the shaft. It only goes somewhat.The smooth part of the shaft at the beginning of it. That's all you see once the clutch is on it. I put my old one on it and it would slide all up and down it. Is this normal? The clutch does slide up and down the alignment tool but not the shaft?

Re: Transmission installation Problems

Take the NEW clutch off the motor just to make sure it fits on the tranny input shaft, to make sure its the right part number.

But before you take off the clutch, it is installed on the flywheel the correct orientation correct? You would know if the clutch was flipped 180*, cuz the pressure plate wouldn't sit flush against the flywheel

Yeah, the clutch tells me which side to put it on. The side that is flat goes against the flywheel. It just won't slide up and down on the transmission shaft. I think that's the problem of why the transmission won't sit flushed. Yes I put grease on the shaft and inside the clutch (not too much grease :P)

This is as far as it will go

Re: Transmission installation Problems

That without a doubt is why the tranny won't bolt up correctly; cuz the clutch should obviously fit all the way on the shaft.

You might have the wrong clutch.

See if your OLD clutch will fit the new alignment tool.

Also see if you can count the number of splines on the new and old clutch.

Re: Transmission installation Problems

Old clutch and new clutch are 24 splines. Old and new clutch slide on and off the alignment tool. That's why it's so puzzling to why is won't go on. All of the splines fit into the grooves on the shaft. I have the Exedy KHC03 replacement.
