    Yes, it is a manual transmission but, we never took out the clutch. but it feels like it's not splining at all. the clutch isn't knew but the pressure plate was recently replaced. could it be anything else?

  • bcruz83 Apr 21, 2009

    I'll go look for a clutch alignment tool. Sounds like the problem I am having.

    Thank you so much. Hopefully I can go home now.

    I had to Jack the motor up a little higher to get things lined up. But, You were a great help. Thank you. Maybe you can help with one more thing. I need to get my ring gear pressed back onto the flywheel so that it'll stay. My car wasn't starting bc of the separation of the two parts. Any ideas?

I am assuming you have a manual transmission, but did you use a clutch alignment tool when you installed the clutch? If not you will never get it aligned. If the clutch is new, did you make sure the clutch disc will slide freely on the transmission shaft splines?

    If all the parts are the same ones that came off, then it has to be some sort of an alignment problem. You can buy plastic alignment tools inexpensively at places like NAPA. I think that supposing all other parts are installed correctly, you must have bumped the pressure plate release spring and caused the clutch disc to shift. I don't know how many miles your clutch has on it, but it may be worth your while to install a new clutch while you have it apart. Many clutch kits come with the alignment tool.



    On a side note, if you packed grease into the cavity on the back of the crankshaft where the pilot bushing is mounted, you may be causing a "hydraulic lock" with the nose of the transmission input shaft trying to compress the grease which is basically non-compressible.

    Hope this helps.

    The ring gear is a pressed fit onto the flywheel. Usually they last the life of the flywheel unless the starter gear clashes and damages them. I was curious how you were going to install your ring gear on the vehicle. They don't usually come off easily unless they have a crack or are completely broken.

    You really need to completely remove the flywheel and put the flywheel on a flat surface and use something large and strong enought to span across the ring gear to press it on correctly.

    I would recommend taking it to a machine shop if you don't have the correct tooling. The cost will be fairly small and they will most likely install it correctly. If the old ring gear spun on the flywheel or is cracked, you will most likely have to buy a complete flywheel. Not sure if they sell the ring gear seperately.



    Good luck!

When I try to start the engine it makes a loud grinding noise and eventually the starter just spins. This is the 3rd starter I have replaced. Any ideas what the problem might be?


Year/make/model?? Sounds like a worn flywheel/ring gear located inside at the back of the engine. The transmission will have to be removed to access this ring gear. However, it can be checked for damage by removing the starter and ( in some cases there is an inspection plate at the bottom of the transmission ) looking at the ring gear for damage to the teeth that the starter contacts to turn over the engine

How do I go about obtaining a drive ring (big cog) with 10 teeth missing


Depends, if an automatic transmission, you will need to drop trans and replace flex plate ( one piece). If a standard trans , again drop trans and clutch assembly remove flywheel and either replace flywheel or sometimes they have a replaceable ring gear but that is a hard job since it must be heated up to expand over flywheel

Worn teeth on flywheel


Worn teeth on a flywheel are usually a result of a starter problem such as a drive or the starter not lined up properly or loose causing the starter driver gear to mismatch with the teeth on the ring gear. This eventually wears the teeth on the flywheel away. Transmission will have to be unbolted and moved back for enough room to work or completely taken out. The flywheel will need to be replaced or you can get a new ring gear cut the old one off , weld the new one on then balance it. Best just to get a new one unless you have a real shop. LOL Nowadays most mechanics just get a new one, less hassle and quicker plus I don't think half of these yahoos would know how to properly replace the ring gear anyway. Check your starter for damage also.

Flywheel eating starters up


If you go through all the work to remove the flywheel, it would be best to just install a new flywheel. I am not that knowledgeable about the ranger, but I have never seen a flywheel that could be reversed. They typically have an offset or a pin which prevents them from being installed the wrong way. If it is a manual transmission, then the ring can sometimes be heated and removed.

Put new clutch in now I can not get the transaxle back in


Your description is somewhat confusing for lack of more information. I'll try and help the way I can understand it.

  • Transmission not lining up and difficult to connect to rear engine block.
Assuming that you're using a single mass flywheel and friction plates are lined up correctly. Centering mandrel 3190A or equivalent is used to center the clutch disc on the flywheel when the pressure plate is bolted down. Be sure that mandrel is fully seated into the centering hole in the center of the flywheel.

Flywheel lock 3067 or equivalent is used to lock the flywheel during removal and installation. Proper use prevents damage to flywheel ring gear teeth.

The spring cage of the clutch disc should be facing the pressure plate.

Assembly bolt.
Secure clutch release lever in full off position for installing transmission. Remove after transmission has been installed. Usually made from a res plastic material. An M8 x 35 bolt can be used in place of assembly bolt.

  • Axle shaft difficult to install
With the transmission connected to the engine block and secured with transmission mount in place. The wheel bearing and hub assembly should be disconnected from the lower ball joint. You should have marked where the bolt securing plate and the control arm so it wouldn't mess the alignment that much. Sometimes you can get away without disconnecting the tie rod. With this all out of the way, it would be easier to assemble the inner CV joint to the output flange and slide the outer CV joint into the wheel bearing centered spline hole.

Put key in ignition, turn the key, but all i hear is a clicking and whirling noise. Is my starter dead or what could it be?


1) Raise car and set on secure jack stands. DO NOT get under it unless it is safe! OR, have it placed on a lift.
2) Remove inspection cover at transmission bellhousing. Inspect flywheel (flexplate if automatic) ring gear for tooth damage and inspect starter drive (sometimes called a bendix) for tooth damage.
3) If all ok then the overrunning (one-way) clutch in the starter drive is slipping. It's quite common. In that case you can disassemble the starter and replace the starter drive (if parts for it are available) or simply replace the starter. -OR- If the flywheel ring gear is damaged you will have to remove the transmission and replace the flywheel ring gear (sweated on) or the flexplate if it's an automatic. If teeth on starter drive are damaged it should be replaced.

Note: If you can't do this safely or are not mechanically inclined, then you should hire a reputable shop to do this for you.

Fly wheel ring gear replacement


You need to pull the tranny out.
Then the flywheel needs to be unbolted from the engine.
if it's an automatic, purchase a new flywheel, if its a clutch, you can have a new ring gear pressed on to the flywheel...

Ring gear needs to be replaced on the flywheel


IT IS EASY TO SPLIT THE TRANSFER CASE FROM THE FORD TRANNY. YOU WILL ONLY NEED TO GET ANOTHER GASKET TO MATE THEM AGAIN. IF YOU DON'T SEPARATE THEM YOU WILL PROBABLY HAVE THE LINKAGE ISSUE TO DEAL WITH THROUGH THE FLOORBOARD. MAKE A MATCH MARK ON THE TRANSFER CASE TO THE TRANNY. SOME OF THE FORDS ONLY GO BACK ONE WAY AND YOU WILL NOT WANT TO BATTLE THE WEIGHT WHILE LINING UP THE HOLES. GOOD LUCK. SOUNDS LIKE YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING ANYWAY.
