Talking Time for move forward!!

Last week I dropped off my pickup for an engine, transmission and rear axle rebuild. Everything was working pretty well, but there were a lot fluid leaks and I know nothing major has been done in over 30 years, so this is preventive maintenance, plus I want it all looking nice. So far everything has been removed -- real fun begins next week.

Interesting. Document everything that you can. I know mine is the new version of everything (56), but.......

Mine has some nice leaks too.

I have never seen a rear end that looks like that one before. Hmm...

Brian, I think that axle is known as a Timken. I don't have my shop manual with me.

I stopped by Performance Transmission earlier this week. They had the transmission all cleaned off and said that other than the rear seal it was in good shape. I hope to pick it up tomorrow, so maybe some more pictures...
