Re: Does 8n tranny
If you do just a rear split, the shift rails and main shaft do come out the back. Big pieces cone out the top as they come loose from the rails and shaft. If the rear main shaft bearing is trashed, you can replace that. You can replace the wobbly gear if it's broken. However, I don't know how you can properly set the preload on the bearings with the front of the transmission still attached to the engine. It may be possible to turn the gears back and forth by hand and get a feel for the preload that way. I've never pulled anything apart that didn't have more damaged parts than could be seen before I got it apart. I would just start with a front split and get the entire tranny loose so I could get everything out and clean all the broken metal bits out of the case. Leave loose bits in the case and even if you can fix the current problem, damage will continue to occur.
