Output flange damage

8 posts in this topic Last Reply

Recommended Posts

That's a spare unit I have that will replace my existing tranny.

The problem is that there's damage on one of the ears from misalignment, loose bolts, disintegrated guibos, oh who knows what. Roughly half a mm was shaven off.

I am renting shop space and don't really wanna through the hassle of swapping those flanges,since I have to be able to swap the tranny in 8 hours.

Can I still use this flange? perhaps resurface it somehow?

Probably False economics to use that part. get that piece replaced Then rent the shop space

You could. It would probably work just fine.

If you got tricky you could surface it smooth

and shim it back to the right height.

But it would probably work even as buggered as it is.

If it eventually went TU, you could replace it in the car later-

it's actually kind of nice to have the transmission strapped in for that procedure.

I'd fix it if I had time. I would just use it as is if I didn't.

Toby, thanks for a constructive response. I resurfaced the thing with the dremel and plan on using a very thin shim.

I'm in agreement here. If the transmission is out of the car, swapping the flange takes all of 10 minutes with an impact wrench.

plus the time to track down a 30mm thin-wall deep well socket (nearly non-existent), or find a thick wall and shave it down. plus the time to find a new flange, have it mailed to you, then discover there's two different types of 02 flanges... and so on....
