  Aligning that V? You don't need to change shims just to take apart and replace that front bearing assy. Those trans are pretty simple inside and parts are large. They aren't delicate like a car or truck trans. Normal wear isn't going to effect reliability. You can make gaskets or use silicone in some places. Just follow repair manual for taking it apart. Only disassemble enough to replace front bearing and turn over and flush out any debris. If you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, Find an independant place that repairs truck trans. Just tell him you want it repaired, not rebuilt.

I thought it would be polite to post a follow-up since so many of you folks provided assistance.

After further investigation we found the main drive gear missing approx 50% of it's teeth. The front carrier bearing as fused to the shaft and took 50,000 lbs to press it off. The race is "welded" to the case. Half of the rollers from the inner bearing was made into shrapnel and was on the drain plug magnet. It looks like the idea of putting in some replacement bearing went south.

I called Luke to see what his opinion might be and he felt that I should look for a replacement trans.

Still looking for an 06, V drive, four speed.

Thanks again.

 Hey Red Rider  I have a 4106 4 speed with a 1 year old clutch and a 8v71 all on a cradle mouted on a dolly to roll in a engine compartment. The trans was gone thru. The needle bearings alone were over $300.00 dollars. Come and get it $1000.00  olebusman ps The clutch was over $1000.00 complete with flywheel face insert

Thank you everybody. I have committed to buying a dry clutch 06 set up. We found it in Southern AZ. The seller has a fine reputation and comes highly recommended. He is parting out his Bus and the folks who bought the engine are very pleased.

There are no new 06 trannys around so this will have to work.

Matt: Obviously I had the clutch in. How else can you bury a 06 all the way to the axle in the sand?

As far as the sand goes I think it was the GPS not the driver. I mean who knew there was a river there.

Hey Clifford,
A wise man once said "you get what you deserve". I really think it all your fault. If I hadn't been going to visit you I wouldn't have run into the Colorado River. Smiley

With that logic I should run for congress.
