NISSAN Pathfinder Manual Transmission Rebuild Part 7
Reassebling the Manual Transmission in my 1994 Nissan Pathfinder 1

If you are following along, this is page MT-45, Manual Transmission section of the Nissan Pathfinder Factory Service Manual.
But first, lets pay some bills:

  1. Installed main drive gear bearing, spacer, and snap ring.

    main gear bearing

  2. Assembled and installed 1-2 gear syncronizer.
    MT-45 4b

  3. Pressed on 2nd main gear and needle bearing. Pressed on 1st gear bushing. Note the press is pushing the shaft down into the bushing. I never removed the 3-4 syncro, so I skipped steps 4c-4e in the manual.

    first gear bushing

  4. Installed first gear and steel ball and washer.

  5. Installed new bearings into adaptor plate.

  6. Installed mainshaft halfway onto adaptor plate.
    MT-49 7a-b

  7. Installed counter gear halfway onto adaptor plate.

  8. Must install main drive gear before installing main shaft!
    MT-49 7c

  9. I called in a pro to see if there was an easier way to get the main drive gear on. Of course the pro said just do it the right way. So he showed me a trick to get both shafts out at once.

  10. Pulled the main shaft into the bearing.

  11. Pulled OD gear bushing and OD main gear. In the manual it says to hammer these on. When I tried that I just pushed the shafts back out of the bearings.

  12. Installed new front case countershaft bearing.

  13. New snapring for front main bearing.

  14. Put the front case over a hole on the shop bench, and dropped in the gears. There's the front half done.

  15. 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!

  16. Then I finished my beer.
