Wish me Luck

Here is the second attempt to get My66 back on the road. Originally we had planned to use a Tilton 6000 Hydraulic throw out Bearing and clutch that failed miserably

This time I'm using the DazeCars external slave cylinder. I pestered him quite a bit and I'm really impressed with this setup everything is heavy duty, with that being said thie weekend we go again

Re: Wish me Luck

You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the forum are upon you. The hopes and prayers of muscle-car loving people everywhere march with you. In company with your friends, wrenches and beer in hand, you will bring about the repair of this Galaxie, the eliminations of squeaking throw out bearings, and the security of a reliable vehicle.

What was the problem with the Tilton bearing? I'm doing a 429 with a TKO-600 and the Tilton hyd release bearing is on my list.

We didn't get the pedal stop correct in initial setup and when bleeding and blew the seal and Tilton said too bad buy a new one, also having to pull the transmission every time to get correct clearance is a PITA
You might have better luck

Re: Wish me Luck

here is a download link to service manual..

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...e84OD8hVqq16sg

is this a brand new transmission/never tried or tested before ?

roll pin could be missing on reverse/overdrive shift rail/shift lug
look at page 9,10

Went to the shop to see My66 got good news and bad news. Good news nothing broken or sheared bad news the shifting fork jumped the block on the sliding rail, we have to separate the case to realign everything. Might be a week or so to fit me back into the rotation
