Re: Front Diff

That's what I've been trying to do, per your video on it. You're right, not much to grab on to. Does the transmission need to be in neutral or is that irrelevant?

Re: Front Diff

So I'm currently working on removing the transmission etc from my car and I'm trying to remove the input shaft... Does the car need to be in neutral? If it's in a gear, does that make removing the input shaft more difficult or does it matter?

Re: Front Diff

I already planned on doing the clutch, I think you had mentioned doing the rear main seal. However, I took the donor diff (or transfer case, depending on who I talk to) to a shop today to look it over. He said that this one isn't in the best of shape. Showed me where the "hardening" (I think that's ...

Re: Front Diff

Hot dawg! I got the diff removed from the rest of the transmission! Thank you all so much, you've helped me out a ton! I looked at the gears and everything looks good. I see some, mashing I guess, on the biggest gear, on the edge, kinda between the teeth, but no broken teeth or anything. Gonna see a...

Re: Front Diff

Going by that, Teranfirbt, I think that's what I'm actually doing, which might be my problem. So I'm guessing that I need to focus the separation about an inch and a half forward from where I've been trying? Some one at some point has been in this transmission before because there's red gasket maker...

Re: Front Diff

I can get about a quarter of an inch of separation on the halves but that's about it... Am I missing something? If it's stuck in gear, would that keep it together?

Re: Front Diff

Now that I have the unit out, I have removed all the bolts holding the diff onto the rest, but it doesn't seem to want to separate... I'm guessing internal components are keeping them together and I need to slide them apart in as straight of a line as possible? Suggestions? Tips? I really don't wann...

Re: Front Diff

SUCCESS!! The transmission etc has been fully removed from my donor car! Just moved it to my patio, which is covered, so I can begin to separate the diff from the rest... Would a Toyota dealer be a good place to go for info on all of the measurements, tolerances etc for all the internals, or is this...

Re: Front Diff

I'm just outside Denver. I found his carb rebuild video when I was fixing my baby up after being in storage. The video was perfect! And more recently, his video on the front axles helped me with removing them from the donor car. Very informative and extremely helpful for the do-it-yourselfer!

Re: Front Diff

Wait a second... The Robert Walker videos? That's how I learned to rebuild my carburetor and how to get the front axles out! That guy and his videos are awesome!

Re: Front Diff

Petros, I've looked far and wide and cannot find any videos on removing the transmission. Do you have the link?

Re: Front Diff

That's not a bad idea, I think I noticed previously that it looked like the rear main seal was leaking... As long as I'm in there, guess I might as well knock out as much as I can.

Re: Front Diff

I really hope I'm not getting in over my head with doing most of this work myself. Once I know the condition of the replacement diff, as long as all is well, I intend to get a clutch kit and replace that while I'm in there (mine is on its way out). It's just strange how it went out with very little ...
