    I am going try and rebuild my T-14 transmission this week. Are there any special tricks or concerns? I have a copy of the FSM, but is there any other literature I should turn to?

    Take your time, follow the directions, lay everything out in a neat and orderly fashion. Cleanliness is next to godliness. Take your time, don't get frustrated or mad. If you do, take a break and come back when calmed down. Use petroleum jelly for assembly. DO NOT USE GREASE! Vaseline works good. It readily melts away and mixes with the oil whereas grease can block oiling passages. Lube everything!
    This is very do able by the home rebuilder. Nickmil

    Thanks, I'm actually looking forward to giving it a go. I got a rebuild kit from Novak and it looks pretty complete.

    I have some minor pitting on some of the gears, how much is acceptable before changing gears?

    minor pitting really isn't an issue but if the gear looks eroded at all or like the surface may be kind of flaky looking then get a different gear. Nickmil

    Make sure you have the proper snap ring pliers to removethe rings from the main shaft and the input shaft. The rings are stout and require a very stout pair of pliers. I broke one of my snap rings and ended up having to buy another 23.00 small parts kit for that one ring.

    Thanks, mine are kind of weak. Do you need a press or anything for bearings?

    The snap rings are not the pin type they are eaton style and require there own type of pliers. KD tools makes model 2534 available at most auto parts stores for around $16

    Make sure everything is clean before reassembly and use permatex on the front bearing retainer gasket, make sure you match the gasket very good to the front bearing reatainer and trim it if necessary, specifically in the area of the oil flow hole.

    Thanks I'll need a pair. What type of bearing puller do you recommend? Is a press needed?

    I didn't need a bearing puller, some of the bearings fit loose enough when you take them apart, you can knock the bearing off with a couple of taps from a rubber mallet. To put the new bearing on you can heat the bearing and freeze the shaft, it doesn't always work but if you're quick it will work about 90% of the time.
