Re: NEED HELP PLEASE

You might want to explain what it is that you have done sofar. What is it that is not working for you? 3 weeks is a long time to be fooling with a TC.....

Re: NEED HELP PLEASE

I can't get the TC to go on more than hafe wayon the in put shaft. I think that the gears in side the TC are droping so they wont line up with the grooves on the input shaft

Re: NEED HELP PLEASE

Just a noob here but make sure the old and the new TC look the same. (Hard to make the wrong part fit.) Also IIRC you may have to rotate the TC as you hold it straight to allow it to mesh properly to the imput shaft.... HTH....Al

Re: NEED HELP PLEASE

for future reference, and I know the manual says otherwise, but I have always found it easier to leave the TC on the tranny. Bolt the engine up, then you can just spin it till it lines up with the flywheel.
