Starting a slow restore to a C-160, Today she got a new fuel tank, and different tires. Started it up and went for a ride under her own power, first time since '08.
Next comes finding the fuel leak, looks like a bad hose. and maybe some cleaning of the oily parts.

Hi everyone, I have a 1969 raider12 6speed trans, Thant I’m going to change the oil in. But I don’t have a dipstick how do I get the two quarts in there? i tried filling from the side port only got about 700mils in. Thanks in advance!
I finally got a chance to rebuild a transmission with a hi/low mechanism. This is a 6 speed #5060 transmission with the 10 pinion limited slip differential. Notice the brake shaft comes out the hole closest to the axle housing. The 8 speeds brake shaft comes out of the cluster shaft hole. I did a series of videos for this thread along with some pictures. The videos are split up between different phases of rebuilding...ie...the differential, the hi/low shift mechanism, the rest of the gears 1 & 2 (my batteries died in the camera). Most of the information will be in the videos...be advised that I did some struggling while doing these videos and I left them as is because it is not always easy. Hope this helps you guys.
According to the manual the bolts that hold the differential together are in backwards in the video. The nuts should be on the input shaft side (right side) of the transmission. Sorry, I missed that.
Just got the trans split. I use a 1" old wood chisel to start and then work the case apart with a pry bar.
A couple shots after getting the case half off...trans is in neutral.
The trans case works as a work bench for the differential...very cool
Here is the reason the trans needed to be opened. An axle gear lost it's teeth and the pieces were lodged in the pinions.
Finished and back together.
The rest are the videos...1st on is the differential...
Next 2 are dealing with the hi/low mechanism...1st one taking apart and the 2nd on putting together...be nice...it was my first time.
Now, 2 videos putting the rest of the trans together...batteries died just before I finished the first video.
Thanks for looking
I have not had to do this before and want to make sure I'm doing it correctly.
Picture of bearing and seal is attached.
Is the bearing supposed to fit in the groove of the oil seal or is the seal supposed to flush against the bearing? I think the latter is correct?
We are putting this transaxle back together and noticed the parking brake pawl seems to be in bad shape.
The part is NLA but someone said it could be mig welded and filed.
I have never seen what it should look like. Is there supposed to be a "notch" in the pawls or should the weld be built up and then filed so there is no "notch"?
