Re: Camshaft Bearings

Dave: It appears to be a solid casting, then machined out. Rough casting marks on the bottom of the inside, but no evidence of any babbit. Also oil hole area is also rough, and not really machined either. The welding is if I cannot get a new one, that broken bolt tab will need to be fixed and re dri...

Re: Camshaft Bearings

Dave: Your suggestion on turning the bearing cap worked, once I turned it about a 1/4 turn, I could hook a crowbar under one of the tabs, and slowly worked it out. However, it is quite a bit longer than you and I thought, see photo attached. Also, as I thought, this is indeed the rear bearing and se...

Re: Camshaft Bearings

Dave; Thanks that print is better than what I have. Yes pressure on start up is 50 lbs so yes it is quite a bit of oil pressure. You might recall that I disconnected the take off for the oil filter, which was putting oil directly back into the oil pan and lowering my overall oil pressure. Now oil pr...

Re: Camshaft Bearings

Dave; it will not rotate easily, trying not to use too much force however. Since the bottom tab is broken already, it would seem that someone else used a bit too much force so I am a bit fearful at this point. I think that removing the oil pan will get me a better angle, and that may help. I would l...

Camshaft Bearings

I have a 32, 901, which has an oil leak out the hole at bottom of the transmission. I believe this is a factory drain hole that allows any accumulated oil from either the transmission or the engine to exit the car and tell the owner that something is a miss. There was a metal pan installed under the...

Re: Transmission Removal

So I assume this is a sealed throwout bearing and lubrication from the Bijur is not necessary ? Discovered a new problem, when I removed the transmission I was looking for a leaking slinger. Unfortunately I discovered the leaking oil is the rear camshaft bearing cover. The cover apparently has been ...

Re: Transmission Removal

Update, removed transmission without removing brake cross tubes, but had to remove drive shaft and exhaust pipe in order to have enough room to back it up and swing it sideways. I have attached two photos showing what I believe is a blocked throwout bearing lube port from the disconnected Bijur syst...

Transmission Removal

I am about to start removing the transmission from my 32/901. Any words of wisdom from experience are appreciated. I have an oil leak possibly from the rear main bearing slinger. But it could be something else entirely, hopefully a simple seal replacement. Oil pan is clean so it is not the return li...

Re: 40 Rear End Pinion Seal

Thanks, I did check the play of the pinion shaft, it is .013 in/out, so not too bad. I think my new Silverado has that much. Lash is about a 1/4 " of drive shaft play before wheels move, again, not too bad.
