Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
It's a bit of an common problem with this gear box the forward backwards selector arm ( the T shaped one on the left when viewed from the top) has an oil seal that is prone to failure allowing water to penetrate in to the gearbox. If left unchecked the selector bearing will eventually collapse making it impossible to get any gear. A further problem that can happen is that the main bearing in the box will also suffer from the presence of the water. Best way to check is to drain the oil from the box thru the plug on the bottom if the diff if it come out even slightly milky then the selector oil seal has failed only solution is to drop the box out and have the selector turret beaeing changed buy a recon specialist and have them check the main bearings for water damage too

Have a look under the bonnet and find out if its the master or slave cylinder which is leaking? Which ever it is take a 10mm tight fitting spanner to the pipe and carefully loosen it. The flats on the connector damage easily, so don't let it slip! After removing the pipe connector let the brake fluid drain into a container. If its the master cylinder don't bend the pipe away, but loosen the securing nuts with a 12mm spanner and remove the cylinder, taking out the pipe at the same time. When fitting the replacement, mount the unit in place and attach the nuts loosely only to keep the unit in place but not secured. fit the pipe into the cylinder and using your fingers to tighten, not a spanner, screw it in. The connector can be easily cross threaded and if that happens it will leak and not be able to pressurize. Once the pipe has been fitted by hand, tighten the cylinder into place and then finish tightening the pipe with a spanner. Once completed open the bleeding nipple on the slave cylinder and fill the clutch reservoir with brake fluid. Let it drip out through nipple into a container. Once fluid has begun dripping tighten the bleed nipple. For the last part you'll need someone to assist you. Ask that person to sit inside the vehicle and press the clutch pedal to the floor and hold it there....Open and close the bleed nipple while the pedal is down and repeat until pressure has returned to normal. Job finished
