So point out the obvious to me....How do you grind 5th gear clear???

And then drive it for xxx miles?

Good guess's are good enough....

Obviously it's a Subaru>>>but even they have limits! Hey Man,ya do nice woirk and have alot to be proud of...Not trying to knock or hijack the thread! good design is good design. Good mechanicing is also good mechanicing too....

Post Mortem and good guesses are good enough for me!

could of been without transmission gear oil.. 5th is one of the easiest to kill because how less exposed it is to gear oil.

If it was not for the the 5th gear and the pinion bearing it would of been fine at 237K however when that bearing went it now allows the input shaft to work back and forth which would later just destroy the front diff.

I might have missed it in the thread already--did you rent or buy the transmission jack?

Gotta hand it to you for working in a driveway too... I know the weather is warmer and light later, but you've got rain and and bugs galore to contend with lately.

I assume this is your only vehicle, but you've got others you can borrow? That's what has been keeping me from doing much beyond basics... I have no way to get to the parts store (except a taxi) once the car isn't in running shape!!

I picked up the transmission from harbor freight

»www.harborfreight.com/450-lb-cap···178.html

yeah the weather was good up until like the last part.. I was driving in the driver's side pin for the axle and it started pouring like crazy and had a thunderstorm.. I covered my air compressor and I kept on going, about an hour later it finally let up so I opened the hood again and put the pitch mount on and put dielectric grease on all the connections for the main engine harness to the transmission.

I used my family member's car so I would not have to take the train in every week which would mean me getting up to catch it at 2 AM just to go to work at 4 AM.

nice work Subaru.
that fifth gear has got me quite curious.
i can only imagine how the previous owner treated the vehicle for the tranny to be in that condition.

Yeah it's almost like they wanted to do that, but then again they were giving test drives on a car that had no gear oil in it..

the replacement is doing well

This is what's been taking up most of my time.. I still haven't got back to the other person about that dimming LED circuit.

heh only 125 lb the worst part is picking it up dead lift from the ground but once it's in your hands and supported it's not so bad.. it's just the first shock of picking it up lol

20 years ago I used to throw around bare chevy and Dodge small blocks.....Could muster the strenght to sling a bare big block around and after you get a feel for the objects balance points its not hard.

However, it dont make it easy!

Happy with the new trannie?

yeah once it's balanced it's great.. I did do one little mistake which was forgetting to take off the bracket on the right side of the transmission which supports the exhaust so it cracked.. Nothing that the wielder could not fix.

That's exactly how I used to describe picking up my ex girlfriend

...for the next one I either need her to be a few lbs lighter, or strong enough to lift me instead

There was a day I could lift those kind of things.

And then time came when lifting those kind of things might throw my back out.

And now just reaching over just to move the mouse to see people lifting those things might throw my back out. You are just sitting there and. . oh crap!
