Title: LT-95a fitting
Post by: mudmouse on February 29, 2020, 04:59:47 PM

Dear all.

I probably could name this subject 'not fitting'.... hence the questions..

I've removed the gearbox from the Perentie and replaced the clutch/oil pump gears and pump cover seal. When attempting to refit the gearbox I get to within 10mm or so of the bell housing seating on the engine and that's it. I've rotated the flywheel and noted the drive flange rotate - so that and the fact it's 10mm away surely means the input shaft is in the cutch plate. I've taken the box out a second time to check clutch plate alignment etc, but nothings obvious.

When replacing the input shaft spigot I fitted it just under flush with the spigot face - as was the one I removed.

Bearing in mind my workshop is a stone cobbled driveway, it's not only hot and annoying, but I'm expecting some resistance with the trolley jack and engine hoist when sliding them around, but even trying a scissor jack applying pressure to the rear of the box just pushes the engine forward - only tried this to test a theory.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Matt

Dear all.

It's in.

I often reflect on the photo of diggers dragging a field gun up a muddy slope in PNG to put things in perspective.

Constant angle checking, adjustments, a bit of bad language and persistence seems to have done the job.

Matt.

Hope you got it in all the way by hand without pulling it in with the bolts.

Hi Brian,

Yes I read about bending the tabs and in any case, forcing splines rarely works out.
