That stinks Mike. Wished I were closer, wouldn't mind getting in there and helping out.

This one has motor oil in it Kevin, so it shouldn't wash out as quick as it would with ATF.

Sorry Mike, and Terry. Both my Sundstrands use ATF, and I have a bad habit of keeping it on the brain, so to speak.

I keep forgetting most post 74-75 year model trannies used motor oil. I know the tranny repair manual says you can use it in the older trannies as well, but just warns not to mix the two.

Sorry again for running down the wrong road with this.

Allright guys, thanks for the input. The bearings seem to be still available so I'll be talkin to my WH Dealer tomorrow about gittin me a pair. I suppose as long as I'm up to my elbows in the tranny might as well swap out anything I can. I dont have any plans to "unload" this one so I might as well do it all.

This really sucks as my new D-160 decals came today and I was gettin all pumped up to start gettin it ready for new paint and decals.

Mike..........

Mike , if you have a Timkin bearing dealer around the bearings will be half the price, I go this route when getting bearings when I rebuilt my GT trans' it was about $50 for all 7 bearings and seals apeice. If you decide to go this route I;ll post the #s.

Also if you feel that spliting the case is too much you can install the bearing without spliting the case, by just driving the old bearing into the case, the O.D. mating suface for the bearing is approx. 1 3/4" and the bearing is 1 1/4". So the old bearing will still be captured by the case. I ve heard of this being done with no adverse effects.

But like TT said spliting the case is really no big deal if you can the hubs off. Pay close attention to the center shaft bearings as these are the ones most prone to wear along with the thrust bushing on it.

Good luck
