NISSAN Pathfinder Manual Transmission Rebuild Page 10
Put together the Transmission in my 1994 Nissan Pathfinder.

But first, lets pay some bills:

  1. I pull the old seal with the seal puller.

  2. I grease up the new seal so it will go in easily.

  3. And I hammer in the new seal, with a jar lid and a piece of wood.

  4. Oh, OK. I remember what this is now. That is why I labeled it "WTF". This is the retaining pin that holds in the striking arm. Obviously.

  5. I pulled the old seal with this hooked seal puller. Funny looking, but useful. Like who? Shut up!

  6. A little grease on the seal, then a lid of a jar, a piece of wood, and a hammer, and I seat the seal nicely.

  7. I used a giant socket and extension as a bearing driver.

  8. A little gear oil, a socket as a driver, and a hammer, and the bearing is seated.

  9. I sealed the transmission case halves with Permatex Ultimate Grey. Permatex Moto Seal Ultimate Grey has been very good to me. Hey Permatex, I accept free tubes of your products. And T Shirts, XL.

  10. Interlock stopper, with o- ring installed, above. On the plastic bag are the check ball plug, check spring, and check ball. The washer is just a washer.

  11. Interlock stopper assembled with grease holding in the spring and ball.

  12. Installation? Yeah, the reverse of removal. You gotta get that factory service manual.

  13. Next I sold out to make 02ยข so I can fulfill my lifelong dream of owning a 1986 944 with blown head gaskets.

    But no minivans!

  14. Then I finished my beer.
