I am leaking an awful lot of fluid all of a sudden...I think a little may come from my modified tranny dipstick,but the rest seems to come from the rear of the pan.

The job for tomorow will be to replace the pan gasket, dipstick, filter, and we are going to do a B&M shift kit while we are in there...

We put in a shift kit while finding the leaks



Had to take off the intake so stuff is easier to move around


Lookit....tranny stuff


getting into it


Lokar dipstick


Then the real fun started


Transfer case plugs should be changed as they are aluminum


1356 on the floor


Getting happy, almost done


Found the leak....tailshaft adapter


Had to replace the motor mounts, I think I broke one pulling out people in the snow...



Drove it around today, no leaks, and the 1-2 shift is much firmer.

:chili:

hey crazed , how much was that dipstick and who did you get it from again. mine is leaking as well and is a pain to get to anyways and yours seems to allow for it to be mounted almost anywhere. How involved was that shiftkit install?

later
